Is there a way to automatically generate groups for students in the same section? Right now automatic generation mixes students in different sections and the only way to ensure students are in the same section is to use the self sign up feature.
Any help would be very much appreciated!

I don't know of any way to automatically sort students into their specific sections. I believe this is because Canvas can't differentiate those registration sections that are coming from your SIS into Canvas. Any time this is requested of us we have to sort them manually. @tyler_clair have you heard of any way to do this?
I took a stab at creating a python 3 script that uses the API to create a new group category, create groups based off of the sections, and then create the membership of each student in their respective group. I got it working yesterday and It seems to work just fine. It will do the initial group and membership creation but any additions, shuffling, or removals will have to be done manually.
