Currently, to change a users role on a course, the user has to be deleted and added back in. This results in additional, unnecessary invitations to the course. It would be great if we could simply change or add roles to the user without deleting.

Edit Enrollment Type
This is absolutely something we would love to have! So very very inefficient to have to delete someone from a course just to change their role in the course.
Maybe this would be even more efficient if Admins were able to do this at the Account level? For example, search for a student/instructor name, go to the user's profile, and then see a listing of the courses the user is registered for (this part currently exists). The addition would be to have some kind of drop-down list next to each course for the user so that we could easily change roles for multiple courses all at one time.
EDIT: Here is what our Admin pages of Pearson eCollege's LearningStudio looks like that allows us to do what I describe.
That would probably work... Yet, it doesn't fit into how Canvas does things right now so I'm not sure which would be easier to implement. Honestly I don't care which way we needed to do it as long as we had the ability! 🙂
Hello @egronikowski ,
Thank you for taking the time to submit to the feature ideas forum.
I just now updated your idea submission to the queue that will open for vote on June 3rd.
Great idea. I will vote early and often for this change.
Once is plenty, Deactivated user!
Great idea! I'm excited for voting to begin next month for this!
Problem with this is it puts more work on Admins, whilst I think it could work I would rather have it at a course level feature
This would be a good idea and should be at a course level I think
All our enrollments were handled automatically through our Banner SIS into eCollege, so we didn't have to manually change a user's status too much. However, when we did have to manually change several statuses at once, this was an easy way to do it rather than by going from course to course.
Great idea. Will definitely vote yes when it's available.
This would be great; especially for Sub-Account Admin Management.
This would be handy!
Yes - would love to be able to do this!
Totally agree with the request and reasons
Being able to
a) (un)enrol users by role across more than one course at a time would also be a real admin time saver
b) search for enrollments by role across courses ( instaed of having to go into each course at at time or looking at users profiles) would also be a fantastic time saver
Yes ! This would be a great feature.
This is a bit of a painful process for both the admin of the course as well as for the participant. Please add this feature to Canvas to help streamline this fairly simple tasks for all! Thanks!
This is now open for voting, so be sure to cast your vote.
