Sort Students in People List: Course

Sort Students in People List: Course


@People list is alphabetical by last names, which is not helpful. Please add sorting function by "First Name", "Section", "last Activity" and "Total Activity". All other tabular lists should be sort-able as well.

Add Group to the columns and Sort by group is needed as well. Jan 26, 2018 @Kristine Hansen @Dale Anne Davidson

The sorting function has been available in Proctorio Exam Results for a while.

When will the Canvas development team pay their attention to this as a production priority because an overall sorting function is required for ALL tabular lists in Canvas!!

UseCase: Checking Section members Last Accessed Date and time

UserRole: Admin

Problem: Using Sections for SITE ID/Differentiation with no filter or sorting by section options all checks are a manual Visual check with time consuming scrolling and note taking

We get asked by instructors/Faculty admin Has X attended class since date or has All of Course Y logged in at least once at this time of year due to a lot of onboarding issues. 

this would make it so much easier to confirm /check or provide that information or even prevent the questions being asked by Teachers since it would be readily available and a Demonstrable tool we can cover with Onboarding new staff/CPD days

Another fringe benefit would be comparing section/class numbers vs class enrolments at a glance and finding any missing imports

This was suggested back in 2018 and it's still an obvious need to slice and dice the list of People listed.  At the moment there is no sorting or filters at all.  Seems like it would be a simple feature to add, but alas we wait.

please add some filter and sort options to people (course), especially add a filter when sections apply

Anytime Canvas presents data to us in a table, whether it be on the People page, the Zoom attendance page, etc., we should be able to sort the data by clicking on the column we wish to sort by.

All tabular data displayed by Canvas should be sortable by any column. Period.
