    When you click on a student's name, a pop-up with the option to send a message.  I'm used to a previous LMS where I could send a student a message anywhere I needed, for example, the gradebook, attendance page, or any assignment or discussion.  Now I have to memorize information from the gradebook, assignment, discussion, etc; go to my inbox; search for the student; and then hopefully remember the grade or attendance or assignment or discussion post and write them the message.  THEN I have to remember where I was and click back to continue grading or reading or whatever I was doing.
