Context Card Custom View/Access for Advisors & Coaches

    I love the new Context Cards and the snapshot view of my students' progress and activity in my course. It enables me to quickly see where they are struggling and reach out to help them.  Our campus Advisors and Student Success Coaches also have the need to access this type of information when they are assisting our students. This access would enable them to track and support their students' work progress better, more quickly and also add the ability to send messages within Canvas to their students.  Currently the only way to allow this is to add each Advisor or Coach to each course their students are in or make them Admins in Canvas - neither solution is a good one.  It's not good for the Advisors/Coaches (picture their super duper long "All Courses" lists), our Canvas Admins (who would have to do the adding) nor for our Faculty, many of whom are not thrilled at the idea of having someone added to their course.
