Good morning everyone, I received the following email from an enrolled student:


"Dear Professor,
Upon browsing around Canvas, I came across the people tab. I looked me up and was able to see my grades. I began wondering why that tab was there so I searched a friend of mine who is in the class. I was able to see her grades as wells. It was not my intention to see hers, but by the same logic if I can see hers others can see mine. I am not sure if this was implemented on purpose in the system or if it is simply a bug of some kind. Either way, I thought it would be something you'd want to know. Thank you for your time."


So, I have looked around the Settings options for Canvas. I found in the More Options link two items that are related to grades and student views. Will selecting either or both of those two items address the issue the student emailed me about? Please advise.
