Integrate Teams-- Allow ever-changing Canvas rosters to populate a Team

Integrate Teams-- Allow ever-changing Canvas rosters to populate a Team

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

For more information, please read through the  Canvas Release Notes (2021-07-17).

In the weeks leading up to and then during the first weeks of class, there is big turnover in students in introductory courses.  In order to have Teams meetings with breakout groups (channels), I have to manually populate a Microsoft Team and channels within that Team with each individual student ID, I cannot just make a random Teams meeting.  It would be so nice if the Canvas roster could auto-populate the Team so students who added late (or dropped )could be auto-added (or removed) to the Team.

Thanks for the feedback @kschuene 

Your idea is not something we have control over development on. Microsoft would need to make the change to their integration.  We will however pass the information along.

@kschuene You can use this integration ad-on which will automate the creation of teams in Microsoft Teams based on your Canvas Courses and it automatically synchronises all the teachers and students from Canvas to Teams. It can also create Teams meetings for online classes automatically and put the meeting links directly in Canvas. Link here.

In collaboration with Microsoft’s release of multiple new apps for Canvas, course rosters can be synced with Microsoft Teams as of July 15. This change allows data from the Canvas course People page to be synced to Microsoft Teams.

For more information, please read through the  Canvas Release Notes (2021-07-17).
