Canvas Teacher for iOS - select more than one student at a time to message

0 Kudos

Sometimes I need to message part of a class but not all. The current Mobile App Inbox options allow me to either select the entire class or select each student one at a time to add to the message. Any solution that would allow me to select a one time subset of the class would be great. One potential solution that could work for smaller class could be that when I select the entire class, they are listed individually and then I can delete the individuals that do not apply to the message. The other option would be to allow me to check which individuals should receive a message versus just clicking on one name. This would work easily when messaging a single student and would be much more useful for more than one.

NOTE: I am aware of the use of the CRTL key in the web browser version on Inbox to select more than one student.

When composing a message, you’d then be prompted to select whom to send it to. Then you’d click a person to send it then the app would take you to the composing screen again. Allowing the feature to select more than 1 person to send the message would save some time rather than selecting 1, then you click “send to” again then select another 1.
