How to download a class roster (with student emails)
To contact students before the semester begins, staff can easily download a Canvas student roster with email addresses by using the Canvas New Analytics feature.
Otherwise, if you would like students to access your course content, send your students emails, or post announcements before the semester begins,, your course must be published and your course start date must have passed.
1. Go to your Canvas course
Find your Canvas course
2. Click the New Analytics button in the home page Sidebar.
Begin on the home page of the relevant course. Click the 'New Analytics' button at right.
Depending on the size of your screen or browser, the Sidebar can appear on the right or bottom of the page.
