Is there a way to make a section a group without having to individually select every student? The teacher would like to pull up a section and create a group using that section for discussions.
Melissa, unfortunately, no, you can't do this in Canvas. Yet, there is a feature idea for this - Make Group Assignments Respect Sections - that was already voted on and responded to by Instructure with the following, "Thanks everyone for your conversation around this idea. It's something I see us circling back to when we look at overall improvements to collaboration and group work in Canvas. For now, I will archive for future consideration."
My recommendation would be to comment on why this functionality would be helpful and follow this idea so that way you'll be notified of any updates.
Were you able to find an answer to your question? I am going to go ahead and mark this question as answered because there hasn't been any more activity in a while so I assume that you have the information that you need. If you still have a question about this or if you have information that you would like to share with the community, by all means, please do come back and leave a comment.
Looks like it’s a feature request. Thanks.
