Create a Taskstream account via Canvas

  • Taskstream is only available to students enrolled on the IUPUI campus and in the Schools of Education on the Bloomington, Kokomo, South Bend, and Southeast campuses.
    IUPUI's campus-wide license agreement with Taskstream (which covers faculty, staff, and students at IUPUI and IUPUC) ends on September 30, 2019. As of August 15, 2019, the Taskstream LTI tool (which facilitates logging in to Taskstream from Canvas) has been removed from IUPUI courses in Canvas, except for the School of Education. All others affiliated with IUPUI should use IU Login (formerly CAS) to log into Taskstream. For details, see About the Taskstream transition at IUPUI.
  • The School of Education at Bloomington creates Taskstream accounts for their students. They do not need to create a Taskstream account via Canvas.
  • If you receive a message indicating that your account has expired when you attempt to log in, contact your campus Support Center. If you are currently enrolled at IU and covered under the current license agreement with Taskstream, arrangements will be made to reactivate your account.

A Taskstream link is available in the navigation menu of all Canvas courses offered at IUPUI and the Schools of Education at IU South Bend and Southeast (unless the instructor has opted to hide it).

If the Taskstream tool is available in your Canvas course, you can create a Taskstream account by launching the tool as described below:

  1. Log into Canvas and navigate to your course.
  2. Launch Taskstream from the course navigation menu. Alternatively, the link may also be available in the Modules or Assignments tool.
    If Taskstream is not an option in the course navigation menu, the instructor may need to add it. For instructions, see How do I manage Course Navigation links?
  3. If you already have a Taskstream account, you will be logged in automatically. If not, you will be prompted to accept the user agreement. Click I Accept Agreement.
  4. You will be taken to the account information page.
    When you create your Taskstream account, the "E-mail address:" field should already be filled in with an address using the form Do not modify this autopopulated email address as doing so will break the integration with Canvas and/or IU Login (formerly CAS).

    Fill in the remaining fields, and then click Continue.

  5. You will be logged into Taskstream.

The next time you launch the Taskstream link in Canvas, you will bypass the account registration process and be logged in automatically.

For information on other login methods, see Log into Taskstream.
