Why can't I print Roster Photos?

Background: The Roster Photos tool was updated in Fall 2022 to display student pronouns in the default view. Previously, pronouns were available via an information icon that needed to be clicked to view, rather than displaying in the main page. In order to comply with data privacy guidelines set by the university, which state only official authorized school officials and classmates will be allowed to view pronoun information, the Stanford Canvas Team decided not to allow printing of any Roster Photos view that includes pronouns. Since Name and Pronouns is now the default view, this has caused some confusion, as the Print button is disabled in this view.

To print photos:

  • From the Show menu, change the setting to Name Only (to view student names and photos) or Photo Only.
  • The Print button will become enabled, so you can click it.
