Link To Message Individual Student From Their Gradebook

Link To Message Individual Student From Their Gradebook

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

 

  Idea open for vote Wed. February 3, 2016 - Wed. May 4, 2016  Learn more about voting...

 

There are many ways to message or leave comments for students (using the Inbox, People feature, and leaving comments on an individual assignment).  Often, though, students are asking questions about their overall grade in a message, and an instructor needs to consult that student's overall grades to answer that question.  Once in the individual student's gradebook, there is no way to message the student directly.  We have to leave that student's gradebook and go out to the Inbox or to the People feature in order to message the student.  It would be nice if a link to message that student would appear directly in their individual gradebook.

Thank you for for coming and posting this idea.  It will open for vote next Wednesday.  FYI; this idea has been voted on previously but failed, last time around, to get enough votes in order to advance in the process.

182472_pastedImage_6.pngWe appreciate you, and the submission of your idea. Your dialogue helps our product teams prioritize feature development. Unfortunately, this idea has been archived because it did not meet the 100-vote threshold within the 3-month voting period. Learn more at: How does the voting process work for feature ideas?

Can archived ideas still become a feature?  Potentially, yes. Archived ideas can be resubmitted by Community members. As people’s needs change, previously submitted ideas may gain additional traction. Feature ideas are evaluated as a whole and influence product direction.

Dumb user question here but I do not see this option on an individual student's grade page. And I cannot find info about it in the release notes linked above. 

Thanks in advance for helping me find this - Erin
