I have already tried opening the course, but even after doing that, the option to add people is still greyed out.
Hi Agripino Silveira...
One way to do this is to go into your course "Settings" and then extend the end date of the course to something beyond today's date...so that the course is technically open for everyone. If you are not able to change this end date, you can contact someone at your school who is an admin for your school's Canvas instance, and they should be able to take care of this for you using the same procedure. Hope this helps!
I am an admin (small school) and I was not able to add another person even when I extended the date.
Hi Karla Huntsman
We face this all the time! The final part of that trick is that after you have extended the course end date, you need to also check the little "Users can only participate during these dates" box, and save your changes to the settings.
Another, and we find easier, method is to simply change the term to a continuous enrollment term. We had created that term when we first migrated to Canvas to use for various training courses that we enroll faculty and staff in, and have found that it is also quite useful for this purpose.
I hope this helps.
