how do I search my sent emails on canvas

Jump to solution

I don't see how do I search my emails on canvas.  Given that I send 100 emails each time I say something to the class, I need that feature even if I have to copy and paste or do something strange.

Hi @JamesLamm 

Unfortunately, that isn't possible.  You can only search Inbox by student name. You can't search for content.  See the discussion linked below.  

It's important to understand that Inbox is a messaging tool, not an email client.  If you have been getting Inbox message notifications to your email, you could try searching your emails. 

A tip, for messages that I know I am going to send out repeatedly, or every semester, I first type them in a wordpressor or notepad app and save them.  Then I copy/paste into a Canvas message or announcement.
