Jump to solution

Is there someway to alter students' names in the attendance function?  I want to use nicknames instead of official names.

Hi  @dcosgrove2 and welcome to the Canvas Community!

As far as I know there isn't currently a way for instructors to add a nickname to the attendance chart. There is currently an idea for this functionality that you could go and vote up. You can find it at: https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/11714-nickname-for-students-with-same-name 

Hope this helps 🙂
