Is there a way to set up canvas to automatically upload to sis any new grades every night?
Hi Melisha. I know that there are ways to have the student information system updated from Canvas automatically, but whether this is possible and how it is accomplished varies from one SIS to another. The SIS at my institution, for example, doesn't do well accepting feeds and so when we looked into this, found out quickly it wasn't an option.
I am not sure what your role is, but you might check with IT at your institution and see about a conversation with a CSM at Canvas about the options that may exist. I will also share this with the Canvas Developers and Canvas Admins user groups in case someone has additional insight that could be useful.
All the best!
Greetings Melisha McCoskey
It's a pleasure to make your virtual acquaintance!
Would you be so kind as to provide some additional information about your inquiry. For instance, if you could list the problem or issue you have identified (that configuring Canvas to provide daily grade updates via SIS upload would solve) that may be helpful in thinking and working out a viable solution.
Finally, I wanted to connect you with a Free, that's right Melisha: a FREE RESOURCE that should prove to be entirely helpful as you journey down the Canvas highway. The team at Instructure has created a wonderful course titled: Be The Hero - New Training Course for Canvas Admins! It will take you gently-by-the-hand, and build block-by-block your understanding and Canvas skills.
Again, great to make your acquaintance, and I look forward to sharing our mutual knowledge; for development of Canvas, and the good of all it's users.
Have a SUPER Day!
So as a teacher, I have to go into each class and update canvas grades to
sis. This takes a lot of time and I only upload once a week. This is
problematic because grades are a week behind until Friday....I proctor
foreign language classes, so I have up to 4 separate classes each hour...so
even though kids are all in the same class, I proctor Rosetta Stone, so
they might be in Spanish I, II or French I or II...In sis each class has to
be separate, so I potentially could have 4 classes per hour that means
uploading from Canvas to sis for potentially 28 classes. If we add another
language option, that could increase. So...if canvas could be set up to
just auto update any new grades, or all grades over night each night, it
would be so very helpful and time saving.

Hi Melisha. It has been a while since there has been activity in this thread so I thought I would check back in and see if you were able to find a solution to the SIS grade upload question you posted. If so please let us know!
All the best---
