Automated email signatures, please

Jump to solution

I understand the feature: adding an automated signature to email sent via Canvas, is not available. When will it be added? I think it's the least you could do for us faculty, and way overdue.

Good morning, @chung1 ...

An existing Feature Idea has already been submitted for signatures of messages sent through the Canvas Inbox.  You can find that Feature Idea at Signature Block - Instructure Community (canvaslms.com).  If you feel that this Feature Idea aligns with something you'd like to see implemented in Canvas, you might want to give it a star rating as well as leave a comment in that thread as to why this would be important to you.

Also, keep in mind that the Canvas Inbox is not the same as a standard e-mail service you might have (Gmail, Yahoo, etc.).  The difference is that you are sending messages through Canvas to others that are enrolled in the same course(s) you are also enrolled in.  You cannot send (or receive, for that matter) messages to (or from) your friends/family because they are probably not enrolled in those same courses.  You can, however, set up Canvas to notify you via e-mail when a Canvas Inbox message is sent to you...so there is that e-mail connection in that way.

Hope this helps a bit.  Let Community folks know if you have any other questions about this...thanks!
