Teaching Team Account NOT tied to just One Canvas Account
Could you give me a little more detail about what is happening with your Canvas Account? You should be able to export our Gradebook accounts to any Canvas Account that is integrated with Poll Everywhere. Worst case scenario it might take another user/login like a TA to upload the Gradebook to a separate Canvas account provided it is integrated on the backend.
If this sounds like what you are having trouble with, can you email us at: email@example.com and give us a few more details? We’ll do our best to get to the bottom of this and see what we can do
Hope this helps!

Good morning Brian,
Our course has a teaching staff that requires access to PollEv for our class. This means multiple people would have to access the same PollEv account in order to add in new polls, set up the polling laptop if another person is sick or cannot make it to lecture, grade polls, upload grades to Canvas etc. At University of Washington using the SSO for one Canvas account means that multiple people using the class' PollEv account would need to sign in to another person's Canvas account. This is a huge security risk as it allows others to access another individual's Canvas account, Canvas settings, and additional personal information. As a work around we use a Shared Canvas account and these accounts cannot upload grades to Canvas, thus I end up downloading the grades and uploading them to our class's gradebook via my personal Canvas account. If a PollEv teaching staff account could be created that is not tied to any one person's Canvas account that could be accessed by multiple authorized Canvas accounts, then this would resolve issues on our end and could speed up grade submission greatly.
