How do I automatically assign students to Groups?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
Once you create groups in a group set, you can randomly automatically assign students to those groups.
Note: Currently you cannot automatically assign students by section. If you want to assign by section, you'll have to assign students manually.
Open Group Set
Click the View User Groups button  or an existing group set .
Randomly Assign Students
Click the Group Set Settings icon , then click the randomly assign students option  to automatically assign students to the existing groups. A popup window will appear in your browser.
