Link Student Analytics URL in Email Envelope push to students

  Idea will be open for vote Wed. June 3, 2015 - Wed. September 2, 2015  Learn more about voting...

As a teacher it would be extremely helpful to be able to push the students analytics report link to the student when clicking the email envelope from the analytics screen.


i.e.  1.  Teacher clicks envelope on the student's analytics screen.

       2.  Student Analytics URL is automatically appended to message generation editor.

       3.  Student get message and can click URL to be directed to their Analytics.

       4.  Teacher dances with Glee!

Excellent idea! This will allow teachers to direct students to reflect on their overall progress in a course on a whole new level. Overall weighted average will only tell them so much. With this, they could see exactly what areas they struggled with when reviewing for a final exam, or what particular types of assignments they struggle with so that they can ask for alternatives or future support. Nice one!


Hello nthanos

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.

Not to mention the additional health benefits to those dancing teachers!  Smiley Happy

Panda-Cat: A mythical creature that we dreamed up to catch your attention, make you laugh, and encourage you to keep reading the explanation of our archive process for Feature Ideas

Archive: An archived Feature Idea is not dead forever, but it has been taken out of stage progression.  When Community members submit feature ideas they are reviewed by the Community Team and then put to a vote by the community at large.  If the idea does not receive 100 votes within 3 months it will be archived.  Ideas that reach the 100 vote threshold within the first three months remain open for voting. Find more information about this process at How does the voting process work for feature ideas?

Can archived ideas still become a feature?  Yes.  Some feature ideas that do not receive 100 votes are resubmitted by Community members and find more supporters as people's needs change, rising more quickly to the top.  Oftentimes archived feature ideas are evaluated in groups when we are preparing to refactor a particular tool or feature of Canvas and may still influence product direction.
