Change Student Name

Jump to solution

On Canvas Instructure (free version), how do you change a student's name and have it reflect for the teacher? I typed the wrong name, and the student fixed it on their profile, but it has not changed at all on the teacher's side.

Good afternoon, @aaatech ...

Can you try this for me?  Clear your browser's cache/history following either of these two Guides:

Once you have done this, close the browser completely.  Then, re-start your browser, and then log in to Canvas.  Did the student's name change on your end?  You may have had some cached data in your browser that was not updating the student's name right away.  Let Community members know if this helped at all...thanks!  Take care, stay safe, and be well.
