What's "Restore"?

Jump to solution

Greetings!

We encountered a feature in Canvas we've never seen before called "Restore". It appears within a user's course membership profile (People > Gear icon > Edit Details.) What is that?

rgibson1​, when I pulled it up it looks like it has to do with concluding a student... so maybe it's to "restore" them back to the course so they aren't concluded anymore? Honestly I have no idea and when I moused over it there was no extra information.

Update: I did a little hunting in the guides and per this guide it looks like it is used to restore a concluded enrollment - How do I restore a concluded enrollment in a course?. The only issue is that the screen shots on this guide don't match what I'm seeing.

Kona is correct.   We use this all of the time to conclude our students when they are finished with a course since our courses are on rolling registration.   Sometimes, there has been an issue or misunderstanding and we use the "restore" to put the student back in the course.
