Is there a way to upload a .csv to assign users to account level groups? I am wanting to create grade level groups for a campus so that announcements can be sent since you can't send announcements to sections of courses.
I didn't think this was possible (in fact, I'm almost certain that it didn't used to be possible). We skipped account-level groups entirely and have used Canvas "courses" for our groups, because we have so many users that trying to add people manually usually times out anyway. However, I went digging around the SIS Import documentation and found that there is a groups.csv and a groups_membership.csv that seem to be for account groups, not course-level groups. I have not tested this, but I hope it works for you!
From the way you worded your question, I can't tell if you're familiar in general with SIS Imports. Assuming you're an admin and have the proper permissions, this guide will help: What are SIS Imports? (and as someone who has seen weird things happen when the instructions for SIS uploads aren't followed well, I would not be a good Canvas citizen if I didn't offer a warning to read the instructions closely ).
This is PERFECT. I can definitely work with this.
