How can I sort by student first name in gradebook?  Is this really not an option?  I find it absolutely ridiculous if this is not possible to do.  This would throw off my grading process for my students significantly, and might force me to stop using Canvas gradebook entirely.

Background: my university recently switched from D2L.

Welcome to the Canvas Community!!!

You can make the grade book sort by Sortable name, but this is something that has to be enabled by tour Canvas admin.  This is on in Settings > Apps  Gradebook - List Students by Sortable Name

Here is something that you might be interested in Last name, first name as separate cells .
