I accidentally uploaded only my students email addresses. How do I go back and add their names without having to type them all in individually. Thank you!
The answer may depend on how you put the names into the course as well as your role. I'm afraid there's not a lot of information in your question, so I'll have to offer multiple suggestions.
If you are an account admin using the SIS Import feature, then have you tried uploading a new file that contains their names as well as their email addresses? When you upload a CSV file, then any information get merged with previous uploads (unless you check the box to make it a full batch update - be really careful checking that one). So, in theory, it should add the names to the email addresses. I'm not going to test that out though. There shouldn't be any need to delete the existing accounts that only have emails first.
If you are a teacher and by "upload" you really mean "paste" information into the box as described in this document: How do I add students to my course? then things are a little different. You can paste a fixed version that includes the names, but unfortunately, it leaves the existing account there, so you will need to delete the existing users with just the email address.
To do this, you go to the People page within the course. Then, next to the students that you want to get rid of, click the little gear (cog) on the right. There will be an option to Remove from course.
We don't add students this way, so there might be some issues I'm not aware of. I do know that the students have probably already gotten an invitation to the class. They may get another one if you try to add them the second time. However, the information on this page: How does Canvas handle new student account enrollments by email address? makes it sound like it shouldn't be an issue as far as creating two accounts goes.
I enroll 20 to 30 students at a time with just their emails.
The first action they must do when accepting invitation to the course is go to their profile and edit their names.
I let them do the work!
Robin, do either of the suggestions made above work for you?
