direct link to compose message

Idea created by Kevin Colwell on Nov 15, 2018

    Currently, we can link students to the inbox by copying the url:

    http:// institution canvas link/conversations#filter=type=inbox

    or even to a specific course within that:

    http:// institution canvaslink/conversations#filter=type=inbox&course=course_XXXX

    where XXXX is the course number I would like to be able to link the students directly to a compose window within the specific course. I know that the click of the compose button is the catalyst for the script, but would there be a way to have a one-click link that allows students to jump right into the compose window so that they don't get distracted on the way to emailing an instructor?
