Add rich-content editor to Conversations

(122)
As a user, I would like to be able to use the rich-content editor to compose messages in the Conversations inbox. This would enable me to create Conversations that are on par, formatting- and content-wise, with Announcements. (Students seem to read Conversations messages more diligently than Announcements.)

@nburruss, you are able to vote by clicking on the stars that appear at the top and above the beginning of the text for the original post/idea.

What's really annoying is that, after looking through the lists shown on the right (Moderating, In Dev, Beta), our conversation here and request has a very solid support number and should have plenty of votes for the Dev Team to pay attention, which is not the case. I never saw ANYONE from the Dev Team responding to any of the threads within. Does anyone have a better insight on how can we push for someone in charge to pay attention and realize this is a crucial (AND EASY TO SETUP) upgrade and implementation feature? In the meantime let's garner more support and push those votes to over 100+. Thank you all for your help with it.

This is a much-needed feature!!  Please vote to make it happen!!

I concur with the comments here. In order to make our content as accessible as possible, the Inbox messages should follow the same functionality as content pages and announcements. Being able to link to other course materials within the conversations is extremely helpful to students also.

I'm adding my request to this list. I've tried to give this request "stars." Would love to see this feature activated.

Please, let's make all of Canvas accessible.

I just hovered over the stars in an illicit attempt to vote early vote often ... and they say we are at 91!  Pester all our colleagues and let's get this vote up to 100. It is lunacy that this even had to be requested! Surely all email and input systems have formatting facilities built in? They must have had to strip it out for Canvas.

To the tech dev team, WE NEED THIS (apols for caps - but we need your attention).

Offering ways for users to make content in announcements, messages, etc. in Canvas more accessible would be greatly appreciated!

Accessible hyperlinks would be very useful!

Greetings!  I would love to see the RCE in the Canvas Inbox.  Students and educators would only benefit from it!

I agree. Please add the RCE to Conversations!

The RCE is needed in Conversations, too! Please add.

This will make Conversations much more functional.  Great idea!

Yes, please! I would love to have the Inbox Conversations look like my Announcements!

The RCE is very much needed in the Inbox. The current set up of the Inbox is very insufficient to compose meaningful emails that could help us emphasize certain sections of a message. I always feel that I have to explain in words something that could be much easily expressed by using elements provided in the RCE. With its own RCE, the Inbox would become a significant educational tool, rather than the simple messaging tool that it is now.

Yes Please!

There are too many places for conversation and information sharing.  Consolidation would  reduce confusion and chances of missed opportunity and support build the class learning community!  

Thank you, Susan
