Unique student identifier to be be displayed adjacent to the profile pic (Inbox on canvas)


Please could you consider including student unique identifiers adjacent to the names in all incoming inbox messages. At the moment, only the name of the students and the course is displayed. in cases where there are shared names in one course, its difficult for the lecturer to pin point the sender.
