Show official photo, not avatar, in Attendance

Jump to solution

In the Attendance section, I'd like to see my students' official photo, but the default display is their Canvas "avatar." Is there anyway to change this? Thanks so much for any help you can provide!

Your school would have to set up a custom solution.  We've done this - our system overwrites all avatars with their ID card images every night.  students can then replace the image, but it gets overwritten the next night.  We actually contracted with Instructure's ProServ team, and our Systems team worked with them to set up the handoff of the images to be uploaded.

Normally, your school's ID images aren't available or being sent to Canvas.

This sounds like a wonderful thing! Can you provide more information?
