No student ID numbers, cannot set last name first in People list

the grade center allows for listing student names by LAST Name first. The PEOPLE list, which by its name makes little sense.  What kind of PEOPLE??  I thought they were students or USERS!!!

When I access the LIST OF PEOPLE (who are logically USERS or STUDENTS), I am unable to change to list to show LAST NAME, FIRST Name, in that order.  Not being able to list by last name first is clearly insane.
Also, on Blackboard I could see each USERS's university student ID number, which is critical when then searching other databases that ask for student ID.  When I access CANVAS, however,  there are no student ID numbers, only strange numbers that make little sense and that are of no use to me.  Can anyone explain this mess?  Are student ID numbers hidden somewhere or am I missing something?
