Looking for a faster process to remove courses that were added by mnistake.. Is there a bulk delete CSV for this ?
Micky, greetings! Since this is a higher level technical question, I'm going to share it with the Canvas Developers group in the Community to see if they can help!
It was not allowing me to post my question to that section.. ?
Micky , did you join the group? Once you join the group then you can post there! :-)
To be clear, Micky, you don't need to re-post this question in that group; Kona has already shared it there for you, so replies will appear right here. For future reference, if you want to post a question directly to a group, just join it first (click on the Actions link at the upper right of the group home page and select Join Group from the dropdown).
Got it.. new to Canvas – still learning my way
No worries! That's why we're here to help! :-)
I'm tagging Canvas Admins, too, in case anyone has something more to add, but the answer is "yes", you can set the status of courses to "delete" in the SIS IMPORT CSV file that you upload either through the web interface or via the API (https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10840-4214527607). You can also true up an entire term using batch mode, which works the other way around: instead of specifically deleting courses, it deletes anything that's not specifically mentioned in the file, although the potential for unintended consequences is very high with batch mode if several people may be creating things manually.
Hello there, Micky Penley...
I'm reviewing older questions here in the Canvas Community, and I stumbled upon your question. I wanted to check in with you because I noticed that there hasn't been any new activity in this topic since March 14, 2019. In reading through the conversations in this topic, it looks like Jay Savage had replied to you later that afternoon with a possible answer. Have you had an opportunity to review Jay's response? Do you think that it helped to answer your question? If so, please go ahead and click the "Mark Correct" button next to his response. However, if you are still looking for some help with your original question, please come back to this topic to post a message below letting Community members know how we might be able to assist you. For the time being, I am going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered" mainly because there hasn't been any new activity in this topic for over six months. However, that won't prevent you or others from posting additional questions and/or comments below that are related to this topic. I hope that's okay with you, Micky. Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.
