Changing/Updating Student Name on Account

As an admin, using the free, unpaid, version of Canvas, can Account Managers update/change a student's name on their account? We have numerous students names listed as emails, a collection of numbers, or entirely blank! 

We would like the option to change these ourselves, without asking the student to do so. Is this possible without paying for the product?

Free For Teachers accounts do not include an admin role or admin functionality, and teachers cannot change students' user names on their behalf. The remedy available to users of free accounts is, as you've noted, to ask the student to make the change.
