I have created groups for a class project. Is there a way to export the groups and the members in the form of and Excel spreadsheet?
Anne-Gigi, unfortunately no, there isn't a way to download a file with the members of a group. The best I can think of is either taking a screen shot of your different groups and/or typing them out by hand.
If you are interested, here is the link to the most recent feature idea for this idea - Export Groups to CSV. It didn't gain much momentum and was eventually archived to Cold Storage. If you want to see what was posted on this idea you can ask to join the Cold Storage group, just click on the link to Cold Storage and ask to join the group. In addition, if you want, you could always revive the idea in the Canvas Studio as a new idea (even though it has been an idea in the past).
Hope this helps!
Does anyone know a workaround to export the groups to excel or any other format? We have courses with very large numbers of students (for example a course with 700 students). They can self-enroll in groups, but if we cannot export these groups to excel, then the lecturer has to manually create these excel-lists. An export with GroupName - Name - First name - Email address would save so much time for so many lecturers at our institution. Please don't put this (simple) addition into Cold Storage again :-)
We built a phyton script to both inject and harvest groups (csv format)

At the moment I'm using the following workaround:
