Directory Holds in Canvas

First, you should be aware that directory holds (where students request that their directory information remain confidential), appear differently in Canvas. On the Canvas roster page, faculty should see a red asterisk after the student’s name on the roster and a footnote at the bottom of the roster list that serves as a legend (*Confidential). When you mouse over the asterisk beside the student name, there’s a message that says, “The asterisk indicates that the student has requested that directory information not be released.” This is not as pronounced as it was in ANGEL, where there was a red bold *Confidential* behind each name that had a directory hold.

In Canvas, you will either have to look for the asterisk or the legend on the bottom of the Canvas roster.
