Search from any page and your Dashboard

When Atomic Search is installed into the root account a global navigation LTI placement can be accessed from the global Canvas navigation menu. Searching from this button will return results from everything that you have access to. Click on the Canvas roles below to learn more.

Note: Some institutions may have this global placement disabled.


It is highly recommended that you add the Atomic Search javascript widget to your Canvas theme


Adding the Atomic Search widget to your Canvas theme makes it even easier to search by adding a search box to the top right of Canvas screens. When the widget is installed, you can follow a search result and then click your browser’s back button, to return you to the search that you previously executed.
