    Please include all data from the Canvas UI -> Admin -> Admin Tools -> Logging in Canvas data.  Ideally, we would like separate tables: 

     

    Course Activity [all info related to course copy, publish, course creation, changes to course settings, etc].  Not sure if this could all be included in the same table or if there should be a separate table related to course settings changes. 

     

    Grade Change Activity

     

    Login/Logout Activity

     

    This information is imperitive to our institution for things like researching whether a student had access to a class on the first day, whether a grade was changed (if so who changed it and when), and login/logout.  We have some instructors who consistently do not publish their course prior to the first day of class and the fact that this data is not easily available in canvasdata or even a report is very frustrating.  On top of that, the information in Admin Tools is only retained for one calendar year, so we can't even provide this history to a supervisor if needed since we it's not available. 

     

    Thank you,

    Joni
