The Feature Request tool is a communication tool that allows you to offer ideas, or suggestions for Kanopy product improvements, directly to our product team. Using this tool, you can also see other projects or features we’re working on based on the comments and requests made by other Kanopy libraries.
How do I send a feature request?
To submit a feature request, you will first need to log in to your admin account on Kanopy. After logging in, click on the “Feature Request” button under your username, which is located in the top right corner.
You will be redirected to the request page where you can submit a request or vote and comment on features that other customers have requested.
You cannot submit a feature request outside of the Kanopy platform.
What should I include in my feature request?
When you submit a feature request, try to include as many details as possible including helpful screenshots, steps to reproduce the problem or limitation you’re facing, and any example URLs you can share with us.
- Feature Request - provide a short, descriptive title of your request
- Description - provide as many details as possible to describe your request to our product team
- What is your feature request or improvement?
- How would you categorize this request? (e.g. admin dashboard, viewing experience, apps, etc.)
- What problems does it solve for you? For your users?
- Attach any screenshots (if applicable)
What personal information is being shared?
This request board is private and the information displayed here will not be shared publicly with anyone outside of Kanopy. It is solely for internal purposes so that our product team can hear your feedback and so that other customers can vote on the ideas and improvements that you (and others) suggest.
Your Kanopy username (typically, the name of your library) will be visible to Kanopy and to other Kanopy customers. The email address associated with your Kanopy customer account will be used to auto-login to the feature request board, but that email address is not displayed to other customers.
You may receive an email when there’s an update about a feature request you have made. For instance, if one of the features you requested is finished, we would like to let you know about it! Our third-party service, Canny, manages our email notifications to send you any updates on the post activity. You can always unsubscribe from any email communication. (please see Emails to learn more about the different email communications).
What if I don’t want to participate in the request board?
Our main goal is to improve your experience and hear your feedback. If you do not want to participate in the request board, simply do not participate. The “Request Feature” board will always be available for you, but you will not be notified or alerted if you don’t engage with the board.
With that being said, we still want to hear from you! You can always email your Kanopy sales representative, or reach out to us at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may receive email messages at the email address attached to your Kanopy customer account if you engage with the request board. The emails will be sent automatically by Canny, the third-party service that manages our request board.
How do I unsubscribe from the emails?
You can always unsubscribe from any email notification simply by clicking “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of the email.
What kind of emails will I receive?
Below are examples of the types of emails you may receive:
If the status of a post changes, you will be notified via email. The following are the available statuses of a post:

If a Kanopy admin responds to your post, you will be notified via email. An admin may respond with updates about the request you have made or ask questions in order to get more information from you.
If you are mentioned in a post, you will be notified via email. You may be mentioned by another Kanopy library or an admin.
