My institution is transitioning to Canvas and one of the things we use the gradebooks in our current LMS for is to help keep track of various miscellaneous student data. While the notes column is handy, it would be very useful to be able to create and delete additional notes columns when we need to keep track of certain non-grade progress and information across multiple instructors and courses.
For example, we have the lecture instructor input the extended time allotment for disability students into the gradebook so that we can download the information and then upload it into the lab gradebook so that we ensure the student is getting their accommodation in both portions of the class.
We also transmit unofficial grades from the lab gradebooks to the lecture gradebooks so that the lecturer can see how students are performing in lab and then they give the students an idea of their overall combined course grade.
