Parent/Guardian Observers Listed Under the Student

Parent/Guardian Observers Listed Under the Student

(6)

Currently, parent/guardian observers are listed alphabetically by their own name in the "People" tab of the course. If the parent/guardian has the same last name as their student, their name will appear near their student's. However, if a parent/guardian does not have the same last name as the student they are observing, their name shows up elsewhere alphabetically on the list. This makes it difficult to figure out which students do have parent/guardian observers in the program and which ones do not. It would be very helpful if observers appeared under their student's name rather than alphabetically (maybe indented as well would be helpful).

Thank you for submitting this feature idea!

I think it would be amazing to know which Observer(s) was linked to a particular student -- especially when last names don't align. I'm glad that there is the information shown about which Observer is observing which student with the inclusion of their student's name. However, it would be great if the list was alphabetical based on the student....or if we had the option to do that as a filter when looking at "All Roles." For many instructors, that list can get long and gumbily with high percentage of family participation. Smiley Happy
