Export Canvas Messages

Hello! I would like to suggest a feature in Canvas messages that enables a user to export conversation and message chains for external archiving. As an instructor, it would be useful to easily save student communications to their student files. If you agree, please add your vote!

Hi, and  Welcome to the Canvas Community! We've opened this idea for voting, and wanted to let you know that we've edited it slightly to remove any mentions of "email"; Canvas does not have built-in email.

Thank you Stefanie! I appreciate the edit!


Agreed- this would also be useful for documenting/archiving/sharing conversations related to student issues of many sorts that need external review.
