    I would love it if there were a way to use the users.csv file to store Custom User data. There is an API for storing custom user data located here: Users - Canvas LMS REST API Documentation  but it would be easier for us to put that information in during our nightly uploads. With this information, we could use some custom javascript to display the custom data in places like the profile screen. For example, as an admin it's useful for me to know at which school a student is located. 

    Here is a mockup with the extra info added on the far right columns:

    SIS import information could have it's own namespace to make it easy to call the information back out.
