I'm looking forward to seeing how this feature will develop. At this point I keep my entire inbox current for the term and then archive everything once the grades are in. But sometimes I teach various courses for various programs. Right now I am teaching one class in three different programs at my institution. It does get a little cluttered in that inbox.
Communications tools are something we'd love to attack in 2017, but unfortunately we won't have much capacity until probably 2018. We'll keep this idea in Product Radar, as I think it's a great idea.
The Radar idea stage has been removed from the Feature Idea Process. You can read more about why in the blog post Adaptation: Feature Idea Process Changes.
This change will only impact the stage sort of this idea and will not change how it is voted on or how it is considered during prioritization activities. This change will streamline the list of ideas 'open for voting', making it easier for you to see the true top voted ideas in one sort, here.
I would love to see this feature added. Other platforms I have used have had it and it makes tracking messages so much easier and keeps the inbox less cluttered. This seems like such a simple thing to add that would make a big difference.
Can we get this feature added? My school recently switched from Google Classroom to Canvas and the email functionality on Canvas leaves a lot to be desired compared to Google. Folders would be incredibly useful and practical, as would have the same consistency of rich text editor/UI improvements generally in the inbox. Right now the inbox feels like it's a decade outdated.
