Happy Monday Canvas Community - just ran into an issue with Anonymous Peer Reviews, an enhancement that I know is not fully complete. I am curious to know if this is happening at other institutions and also if this is expected behavior that will be addressed as this feature gets fully built out.


When a Peer Review is assigned and students make their comments, all is good In Canvas. The receiving student cannot see the names of their peer reviewers:

However, if the receiving student has Notifications set to receive updates when Submission Comments are made, the resulting Notification email shows as coming from the peer reviewer. Also - the email itself shows the reviewer's name and profile pic:

I will create a ticket for this, if it's not already planned to be addressed. I searched and did not find any mention of this in the guides or release notes. Thanks!!
