How can I set the observer role to view only students?
The Observer role is based on the Student role and is very limited in what it can do in a course. It is basically a "read-only" student role. What do you mean "view only students"? Do you want it to only see the People tab in the course? Is there something else that you are trying to accomplish with this role?
Hi Janna Elfrink -- I wanted to take the opportunity to check in with you about your questions regarding the Observer Role. Robbie had some questions for you which would clarify your question. Do you still have questions about setting up your Observer role? If so, let the Canvas Community know! In the meantime, What is the Observer role? is a great starting point. Looking forward to hearing from you!
Hello Janna Elfrink...
As I was reviewing older questions here in the Canvas Community, I came across your question. I noticed that we have not heard back from you since you first posted this question on August 27, 2017. It looks like both Robbie Grant and Kristin Lundstrum have some questions for you that need some clarification. If you could please take a few minutes to come back to this thread to provide an update, that would be helpful. For now, I am going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered"...not because we've necessarily found an answer for you...but because we've not heard from you since late August and because there hasn't been any new activity in this thread since Kristin's reply on October 18, 2017. This won't prevent you or others from posting additional questions and/or comments below that are related to this topic, however. I hope that's alright with you, Janna. Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.
