It appears with some of the latest updates to the Admin UI, that our default list of Users on the dashboard is now 100.

I know many of our teachers would like that same number of default students to see on their People screen.

Is there any way to get the teacher view changed to have 100 people as their default view?

Hello Burt!

There currently is a picker option at the bottom of the People page that allows for the user to select the number of students to be displayed on a single page. We default the number of students listed to 25 to prevent performance issues with rendering more content and individual settings within the page. May I ask why teachers are requesting the page to display more students on it by default?

We are aware of the picker option at the bottom of the People page. However, the default value of 25 causes many teachers to have to use multiple clicks to get the information they need.

For example, if a student's name starts in the middle of the alphabet (say the student is number 30 in the people list), then the teacher will need to either need to change the default value or click to page 2 of the people list. Then, after clicking on a student's name and course to view student information, when a teacher returns to the People screen it defaults to the beginning of the people list with the default value of 25. So, to get back to that student's next course, the teacher needs to either change the default value (again) or click to page 2 or 3 (again).

By changing the default value to 100, or allowing teachers the ability to change the default value to 100, for the People list, they would be able to get to the information they need much faster.

Does this explanation make sense?

Yes that does make sense. While we do not keep those changes intact, we will take into consideration this scenario.

Thank you very much. After today's update, the teachers noticed the new default value on their People screen.
