A course creator has added me as a course designer. Unfortunately, I'm unable to see the login information (ID, e-mail) of any users. Does the course creator or admin need to change permissions for me?
Hi, Will Wittels, and Welcome to the Canvas community.
The Add/remove other teachers, course designers or TAs to the course permission determines who in a course can access that information. For the Designer role, this option is disabled by default. My personal experience is that someone designing course material does not need that information and providing it could accidentally provide personal information to users who should not have access to it. Generally, such access is restricted to those whose jobs it is to interact with the users in regards to their accounts (i.e., the IT department and, maybe, admissions and student services).
If you have need to this information, you should reach out to your Canvas administration team/administrator to have the role adjusted or to assign you a different role in the course.
