Currently, as an admin, I do not receive a Notification, when an image is reported. I have to go to the People page and select Manage Profiles Pictures. The notes read, "When students view another user’s profile information, the link next to the user’s photo displays as the Report Profile Picture link. Selecting this link notifies the Canvas admin about the image, the image will be removed, and text displays next to the image: This image has been reported." Does this mean an actual Notification will now be sent? Will it be sent to everyone with an Admin Role?

We do not currently monitor these reports. We have well over 500 reports due to users mistakenly clicking on a users picture and reporting it by mistake. Are those reports going to be cleared before/when this is implemented?

We do not currently police the images. That would be a matter for Student Life, not LMS administration. The way the text reads, it sounds like an admin will now be responsible for making the judgement call on whether or not a reported image is "approved", is that correct?

Thank you,
