Sending a message to all students as a student

Jump to solution

Hi! I want to send a message to everyone in my class as a student. How would I do that? I don't have "All in History 101" option like instructors do. Thanks!

Hi there kcarr Welcome ‌ to the Community!

According to the https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10504-4212716756 guide, if you don't have the option to message all the students in your class, your institution may have disabled it. Best bet is perhaps contact the teacher and see if they can put out an announcement on your behalf or, message all the students as the instructor if it's pertinent.

Hope this helps!

Hi kcarr...

When you are in the Canvas Inbox and are at the point of selecting the name of a student to send a message to, you'd normally have to click on the name of the student and then go through the whole menu process again to select another student.  I know it's not a "Select All" option, but when you are viewing the drop-down list of students to select from, hold down your Ctrl key on your keyboard, and then start clicking on each one of your classmates.  This will put them in the "To" field, and then you can compose the rest of your message.  Would this help at all?

If you hold down the Ctrl button before you select a name, it will allow you to select as many people as you want. Just keep the Ctrl button held down while selecting names to email.
