No name listed under "People"

When I add a user to my course via her email address, I am unable to add her "name" to the list when I see her under the "People" tab. How do I add her name?

If the email is a match to an existing user I believe the name is copied from their existing profile.  If not, you are offered an opportunity to add a name when you add the new user.  The link should show up for each email that does not have a match.  https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Instructor-Guide/How-do-I-add-users-to-a-course/ta-p/1119

If you did not click that link and add a name when you added the new user, the student may be able to edit that in their profile (if students are given that permission in your school) https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Student-Guide/How-do-I-edit-my-profile-in-my-user-account-as-a-st...

Otherwise you will need a canvas admin to edit the student profile https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Admin-Guide/How-do-I-edit-a-user-s-name-time-zone-or-email-in-an-...
