We need a simple feature to:
Export CSV from "People" Page in Canvas
The Printing with Photo seems to be too complex and may take too long to do.
So why not start with just a very simple feature to export a CSV?
What are your use cases for having this information in CSV?
Just wondering if your'e seeking something similar to or different from what people are talking about here. Printable course roster
There are lots of use cases.
Some of them include.
1) I use this exported list to setup Oracle User Accounts in the Course I teach.
2) I also use it to manage Grades in Excel, as I can do more advanced analysis, such as Ranking students based on percentage, etc.
This one I can do with the Gradebook export.
3) I also use it to setup any other external tools use as JIRA or Wiki Page Access, etc. ….
Where the teachers and TAs's names also need to be exported.
The gradebook does not include the teachers and TAs.
So there are many use cases for this simple feature.
You should realize that, although Canvas is a wonderful tool, Instructors do not always do everything inside of Canvas.
Thank you very much,
Hi Peter, I have a quick question about the export. What data do you see as valuable in an export from People? Checking, I see that he items in the following image are listed in People. Would you envision all of these being exported or any additional information as well? It seems like the individual's default email address may be a good item to include too.
At a minimum, I would like the student's full names and UNIDs.
I don't want to ask for too much, or I'm afraid this will never get done.
but If you can easily include the email address, or any other data items on the screen (omit the person's photo) that would be great.
Any Export feature is better than the current state, which is nothing.
