Parents: toggle view between children

Parents: toggle view between children

(8)

In the calendar I'd like to see a way to toggle the view from one child to another.  Vital for parents, teaching assistants and other observers.  Example:

This is not a new idea and has been requested before.  Thanks to everyone involved in the following pages:

Hoping to have something to share soon.....

So important in a K12 world.  A parent with multiple children has so many courses and this would make their lives much easier.

This is huge for our families! We need this ASAP!!!!!!  This needs to be more than just the calendar, ALL OF CANVAS!!!!  petern thanks for submitting AGAIN! The parent app is nice but it does not solve this issue.

Not just parents, thinking also of learning support assistants, language support assistants and teaching assistants that work with a number of individual students in different years or a small number of students in different subjects.

Agreed - we'd like this to work on the website and the calendar is just a start.  Deactivated user‌ - can you help promote this idea?

Thank you for this submission.  If you use the Canvas Parent App, there is a very nice toggle experience for parents.  Find more in these guides:

rcarney@instructure.com‌ We use the app but the need is still there for the webstie. The app only does certain things. The app is not the answer to this problem.

That's great that you use the app, and I totally understand that it is not the answer for all situations.  Just wanted to make sure that you were aware that the app was a much more pleasant experience!

Hi Renee.  I've used the parent app too and we're discouraging its use for the time being.  After the parent app is set up it can be a good experience, but there are some major barriers to the adoption of the parent app that we've highlighted here Parents Access to Canvas  and in the comments here https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/2512-parental-observation-in-canvas-complicated-with-three-chi...

We are in the same position.  We do not have the parent app turned on and at this time have no plans to do so.  We have our parents going through the web interface and really need that control to switch between students.
