    In the Message Students Who Resources drop-down list (in New Analytics) there is no way to identify what is a Page, Discussion, Quiz, Assignment, Module, Course Menu Item, etc. The Resources drop-down list currently displays as a single list with no way of telling what each list item is (see example below).

    This idea proposes that headers or icons are added to the Resources drop-down list as per similar functionality available throughout Canvas (see example below from the course content copying).

    This change would allow users to quickly select resources without having to identify these separately prior to using the functionality, disregard non-meaningful resources e.g. Course Navigation Menu Items and it would also allow staff to be able to differentiate between resources that may have similar names.
