On the People Page Offer a Mini Dashboard and Provide a Number for Each Student Profile in the List

0 Kudos

On the People Page, in the white space under the Search Bar, it would be nice if the instructor could see the current number of students who are enrolled in the course, and the number of Teaching Assistants and Instructors who are delivering the course.

Also, if we could arrange the order of the list in which the students appear, that would be nice, too. Currently, the order is determined by last name, alphabetically. But, sorting on first name would be good, too. Alternatively, being able to rearrange the order to match the way students are ordered in the university's Information System (Banner, Oracle, CampusMate-J by Fujitsu, etc.) would be helpful.

Finally, if a number appeared to the left of the student's photo on this page, the number would be helpful.

Thanks for considering these ideas.

@sean_michael_ha  Thanks for sharing all these ideas. The Idea Conversations forum is designed to accommodate singular focused prompts requesting an enhancement to a specific feature. As this submission contains multiple ideas, some of which are currently the topic of conversation already in this forum, we've archived this one.

Please read through How do I create a new idea conversation in the Canvas Community? for guidance on writing ideas and add your support to  Sort Students in People List: Course. The additional enhancement you've requested—tying the order on the People page to the SIS used by the school—would need to be developed in conjunction with each specific application provider.

If you aren't able to find the remaining two ideas in your search, please write and submit each one as its own conversation.
