    Hi, 

     

    We have an instructor that says students are confused by receiving the general email notification heading "Course Name" you have received a message in Canvas and not having it include the subject of the email. 

     

    Students in their course say that being able to see the subject heading of the actual email will be helpful for keeping track of emails sent by the instructor. This currently can only be seen after you click on the email in your outlook or gmail inbox. 

     

    I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced this or received feedback on this. I notified the instructor that students can see the subject heading easily in their Canvas inbox, but we know that students primarily use their gmail/outlook or other accounts to keep track of messages. 

     

    Thank you, 
    Kate
