Canvas - You receive a "Failed to Log In" message on canvas.wisc.edu (UW-Madison)
This article describes why users may receive an error message when they try to log in to the UW-Madison Fall 2016 Canvas site.
Failed to Log In Error Message
A secondary problem may exist for some users who lost access to Canvas AND also were members of groups within a Canvas course. Once the user's account is fixed in Canvas, the user may still not have access to a specific group in which they were a member prior to the account conflict. If a user receives this error they should contact the DoIT Help Desk and state that they were enrolled in a specific group within the Canvas course.
