How do I export a list of students and their email addresses?

We have a number of faculty on our campus who use Excel in tandem with Canvas to manage various aspects of their courses. Our old LMS, Brightspace, had a one-click option to export a list of students and their email addresses. Canvas doesn't seem to have that, and I'd like to suggest it as an idea. I know it has been brought up many times in the Community to no avail:

Export Email Addresses

Many of the solutions involve Admin-level workarounds or coding hacks that are well beyond the capability of most of our faculty. I'm a Canvas Admin and I get this question all the time, and it's more than a little frustrating that Canvas can't perform what seems like such a simple task.

Good afternoon, @sringsmuth ...

Do you use New Analytics in your Canvas courses?  If so, you can get a list of students and their e-mail addresses from there.  How do I view and download reports in New Analytic... - Canvas Community  You will want to run the "Class Roster" report that is available on the "Reports" tab.  This should get you the information you are looking for.

I hope this will be of some help to you.  Sing out if you have any other questions about this...thanks!  Take well.

Thank you, and yes this definitely helps. I appreciate it.
