Improve the inbox functionality to provide for more meaningful communication

Theme Overview

Instructors want additional inbox functionality and settings to customize messaging among course participants.

What value could this provide to users?

  • Provide functionality that is similar to what users would expect to see in email tools, such as signatures, RCE, scheduling of messages, auto-reply, and trash folder
  • Update the interface to allow for easy access to common actions, such as archive and delete
  • Provide additional clarity around recipients, such as showing custom section names and which student an observer is connected to
  • Allow for messaging of multiple classes at one time
  • Provide better default controls and actions
