Can I change a student's name in the rosters?
Hi Kristine Kealey
Quick answer is "No". If a student's name is incorrect, you can have your Canvas Admin/Support department change their name. Some accounts will permit users to change their display name themselves (we don't) and if that is the case your student can follow this guide to learn how How do I edit my profile in my user account as a student?
If a student has a preferred nickname, the two options above are the only ones available to change that in your People Roster.
However, there is a third option for your grade roster - you can use the "Notes" column to enter a nickname or preferred name in the gradebook. How do I use the Notes column in the Gradebook?
I hope these are helpful,
