This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas
This is very important to our institution. When we hire a new faculty member we manually create their user account in Canvas and then immediately manually add them to a couple of training courses we use. These faculty usually do not get access to their university email for a few days or weeks so they are unable to confirm their email address with the link Canvas sends them when their account is created. They need access to these courses prior to obtaining their email access.
We also need to do this all at one time so we do not have to rely on the new faculty to remind us to add them to those courses once they have confirmed their email address. Right now our CSM has flagged our instance so we can continue as we have prior to this June deployment. Our CSM stated this is only temporary and there will come a day in the future we will be forced to have those email addresses confirmed. We NEED to keep this ability to add unconfirmed email addresses to our training courses manually as new faculty are hired.
