How do I search the roster?

Note: Due to privacy restrictions, information contained in the Roster tool is restricted to site participants in the InstructorSecondary InstructorTeaching AssistantOwner, or Administrator roles. (Access to official photos is further restricted to participants listed in SIS as instructors, secondary instructors, or teaching assistants for rosters containing those photos.) 

Participants in the Student, Member, or Observer roles have no access to any of this information. By default, the tool is hidden in sites created using the site templates, meaning that students will not see the tool in the tool menu. Even if the tool is unhidden, students, members, or observers will see a page with no participant information after clicking on the link.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Go to Roster.

Select Roster from the tool menu in your site.

Search the roster.


To search the roster by name or user ID, enter the search terms into the Search box. Then, select the Find button.

As text is entered into the Search box, the system will progressively update and display any matching results underneath the box. Select a result at any time to access it without having to select the Find button.

View the search results.

The results will be displayed below the Search box.

Note: By default, the roster will appear in the Card View viewing format. This is a notecard-style list that includes a card for each participant containing their photo, name, user ID, role, email address, and group memberships (if any). However, all viewing formats include search capability.
