Please add an out of office reply feature in Canvas mail. This is a needed feature to communicate with students academic breaks when faculty is not answering email as frequently.
Thank you for submitting this idea, Shelly Buchanan-Cello Welcome to the Canvas Community! While this idea goes forward for Community consideration, you might be interested in employing the solution described in How do I set up an auto reply to incoming messages in Conversations?
...and since I have never actually used out-of-office replies in this fashion, I'd be curious to know if anyone has had success with the workaround described in How do I set up an auto reply to incoming messages in Conversations?
Thank you for bringing up this question! Out of office replies from Outlook, Gmail or any other provider, will not work with canvas due to the automatically added email adress firstname.lastname@example.org. These auto-replies will be sent to this email adress instead of the reply-to adress, which is linked to the corresponding inbox message.
If anybody here has a workaround for this problem, I would be very interested.
