Observers paired to Students

Jump to solution

How do I add observers and pair them to students at the user-account level?  

What is the Observer role?  - This Canvas document states:

  • A user-account level link will ensure the observer is linked to a student and will enroll the observer in each student's past, current, and future courses automatically.

As an Admin, how do I do this?

Hi Neal,

I had this same question a while back (https://community.canvaslms.com/thread/28145-observer-pairing-for-advisors-without-pairing-code#comm... ).  It turns out, you can use an SIS Import file "user_observers.csv" to do it.  The format is in the SIS Import Format documentation at SIS Import Format Documentation - Canvas LMS REST API Documentation

Hi!  This is what we do as Canvas pulls from our SIS, Skyward.  We also then take all of the observers and automatically enroll them into a parent course.  When they log in that course sits on their dashboard with all of their children’s courses.

Thank You Both!  This is great information.
