Student photo reported as offensive

Jump to solution

A student in my Canvas course reported a peer's photo as "offensive" by mistake.  I didn't even know such was possible.  I can't even figure out how to do that myself.  Please advise how I can "undo" the offensive or really "see what happened."

Hi @nzeliff 

Those reports go to your school's Canvas Admin. Per the preamble for the Admin guide for this function...

"If your account has enabled profile pictures for your users, you can manage all profile pictures for your account. Profile pictures are public and automatically approved when users upload an image in their settings. Using profile pictures can make it easier to see the users in your account and managing them gives you the ability to keep the pictures appropriate.

If Gravatars are enabled for an institution in account settings, and a user has a Gravatar but chooses not to upload a profile picture, the Gravatar will display for the user's profile picture.

If a student views another student's user details in a course and reports a profile picture as inappropriate, you can review those profile pictures and approve, lock, or delete the picture. In the courses, instructors can remove profile pictures completely from a user's details page."

This guide will show you how to remove the profile picture for the student in your course, How do I view user details for an enrollment in a course?

Before removing it, I would suggest checking with your Canvas Admin and reviewing school policy.
