Can I add a signature in Conversations to append at the end of all outgoing messages?

Jump to solution

I don't currently see that as an option when clicking on the gear tool. I'm referring to the signature option available in Gmail, among other email services. It is something that I know Connections Academy's Connexus messaging tool offers.  

Also, is there an Out of Office setting?  This was also available in Connexus. 

Thanks!

Hi dfacey@uview.academy , and a belated  Welcome to the Canvas Community!

Signature lines/blocks are not currently available in canvas, but there is a feature idea open for voting that you might want to check out at https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/12314-signature-block , and a related one at https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/13084-electronic-signature .

I searched but could not find and existing idea for "Out-of-Office" messages, but seem to remember one. Anyways, you could propose that as a Feature Idea. Learn how at How does the feature idea process work in the Canvas Community?

dfacey@uview.academy‌, I'm glad to hear that you found another use for PhraseExpress! When I was teaching, I used it all the time to post my frequently-used comments in SpeedGrader.

Hi Stefanie.  I LOVE PhraseExpress and have used it constantly for the last two years for grading, emailing, etc.  Btw, I loved your post on setting up expectations for student use of Conversations in your college course!

Hi Kelley,

Thanks for your quick reply and the Welcome!
For now, I will use my PhraseExpress auto-signature.  Stefanie responded to the Out-of-Office question with the following message:
Hi, Deborah, you'll find the Out of Office feature idea at Auto-reply for Canvas messages 
I appreciate how quickly the community responds!
Have a great day,

Deborah
