Canvas: External Application Integration Requests (DLE External Applications)

After pressing the "Request Service" button, enter these (Action > Category > Subcategory):
Request a consultation > Software > Canvas


Integrated external applications add functionality to a digital learning environment (DLE) to meet the needs of teaching and learning. All integrated external application requests need to go through an application  approval process through UW System.
After you submit the Request Service form, the first step in the proess is for DoTS to meet with you to complete a form with information about the external tool for UWSA. Once this form is completed, DoTS will submit it to UWSA to initiate their review process.


  • The UW System process ensures the evaluation of external application integrations across all UW System institutions is transparent, consistent, and efficient.
  • DoTS collaborates with you and UW System to facilitate your request through the process.
