Sorting students by first name in the gradebook would be an extremely useful feature. Thanks.

Please, yes, I need this, too. Our previous LMS allowed sorting by first names and so a lot of files I have to deal with are sorted by first name only. Right now it's frustrating and a bit time-consuming trying to match up names in the Canvas gradebook with these external lists. Sorting by first name would allow me to just go down each list without jumping around all over the place, and would significantly reduce the potential for input error.

Sorting by first name is absolutely needed!  Please make this a feature.  It's kind of silly that it isn't an option.

Sorting alphabetically by first name should be a must.  This cant be that difficult to code and fix.  Lets work to make this better!

Is there a better place to ask this question, as this thread appears to be going unanswered?

Hi @klundstrum@ctitmus 

Posting here because the other thread doesn't seem to want to let me upload this reply.

I've already looked at both of these links. They do not currently address this concern.

This one shows how to Display First Name, Last Name, but does not show how to sort by First Name.
I've actually posted in this one. So far it has only been changed to Open for Conversation, (and several other Surveyors answered asking for the same thing), but the need has not been addressed here either. I get the impression this thread is unfortunately being ignored. Is there a better/more efficient route to use for customer support than posting on this site, where questions appear to go unanswered for months?

How do we vote this up?  This is a simple feature that would save SO much time!

I want to sort by first name and also have it show on screen sorted alphabetical by first name.  I can sort by first name but on the screen it still shows last name first instead of first name then last name.  grade by first name and not last name so showing first name then last name in that order would be very helpful.
