EOS 80D Won't Work With Audio Mixer

Hello, I recently purchased a phantom power audio mixer for my canon EOS 80D w/ hopes of hooking an xlr mic for either lavs or a boom so i dont have to sync audio in post. I plugged the Saramonic into the mic port of the camera, but am getting absolutely no sound whatsoever. Tested the mic in another camera and it works fine, and the sound mixer seems to be working accordingly, so im not sure what to do at this point. I was hoping to shoot w/ it tomorrow. any ideas?

What specific microphone are you plugging in to the 80D? The 80D wouldn't be supplying any phantom power, so pretty sure the mic would need to be self-powered.  Also, what are the audio settings you set up on the camera?   Perhaps you have it set to use Line input instead of Mic input?
