I have a student in my class and he can't log on. I have his user name and I do not have his passowrd. How do I go about finding his password.
You can't. However your student should be able to reset their password using the "forgot password" link on the front of Canvas.
You may also want to talk to your school's help desk or canvas admin.
We tried the "forgot password" however it doesn't recognize any of his e-mail addresses. I also can't see "Add People" to class . . . . thoughts?
The add people button and your student's login issues are two separate issues.
If you can't add people, then that permission was disabled by your canvas administrator. I'd suggest contacting them if you need the ability to add users.
If your student can't remember the email he used, then he needs to contact your canvas administrator to identify which email his account is attached to.
