Have Observer Calendar/To Do Match Student's

Have Observer Calendar/To Do Match Student's

Parents in a K-12 environment (Observers) want their calendars and time management tools to match their students' calendar and other time management tools, such as the To Do and Coming Up blocks.

 

In order to better track what students have completed and still have to do, we propose these changes to the Observer's time management tools:

  • Items on the Observer calendar "cross off" when the student they are observing submits the lesson
  • The checkmark beside a lesson turn green in the To Do/Coming Up blocks upon student submission

Great idea! We hear that all the time. Apparently Canvas is working on a Parent app that will help with some of this, so it would be great to see that functionality brought back to the non-app version once they complete it Smiley Happy

This would be fantastic; providing our observers with the same information as the students. I hope this is still on the agenda.

Our virtual school is receiving many requests from parents to be able to have the calendar view display which assignments their student have completed. It is currently a lengthy process for parent observers to enter each class to locate missing assignments and verify that their student has turned in work. Adding a feature to the observer calendar to quickly indicate which assignments have been complete is an important request.

I agree with the previous poster who said we need to be able to see what assignments have been completed in the calendar.  

I want to use the observer account for canvas.  I keep finding myself logging into my kids' accounts so I can better see what they need to do.  The goal is to have them keep track on their own, but we aren't there yet.  I have a middle schooler and a freshman in high school.  We all have some degree of ADHD.  Covid is adding more stress and a new way to school.  Please give us the tools to adapt as best we can.
