I'm the Canvas admin at our campus. We have a nicely hierarchical account structure, but have a couple of courses tied to our highest level.
When viewing accounts, the default view shows Courses. By that, it means all courses in the current account and all child sub-accounts. So, I get a list of every course in this view.
Assuming I don't know the names of the courses or the teachers associated with those classes that live only at this account level, how can I filter to see only those?
You can't really filter to a certain sub-account level (and nothing lower) in the GUI view. Your best bet for tracking down those courses is to generate a Provisioning Report of the courses. This will give a a spreadsheet of all the courses which includes a field specifying which sub-account they belong to. From there, you can search or filter the spreadsheet on that field to track down the courses.
There's a little information on generating reports atHow do I view reports for an account?
and on what's included in different reports at
If you have Admin Access why not try navigating the the admin shield > sub-accounts, and then selecting the account that you want to see courses for? if you are in that account and in the courses tab then you should have your results limited/filtered.
Depending on how many there are or what information you need, this could be quicker for you. I hope this helps.
A reasonable idea, but the account I'm looking at is the parent of all other sub-accounts with courses, so *all* courses show up here. It's a needle in the haystack problem.
Luckily for me, the provisioning report suggested above worked well to find these odd classes.
