Surveyor

Groups: Can a group member email all group members at once, not individually?

Jump to solution

Can students email all group members at once? Students need to send surveys to one another. I see they can click a group member's name and then 'Send an email.'  But if they want to send the survey to all members of their group, or if they want to send something else via email, must they do it one member at a time? Is there a way for a group member to email ALL members of their group at one time? Thanks.

Hi ryer@easternflorida.edu

I am a harpy about this, but I always remind folks that Canvas does not have "email", it has a messaging system. The reason I am a harpy, is because if you think of it as email, you start expecting email functionality. But, to answer your question, absolutely!  You can learn how at How do I send a message to all course users in the Inbox as a student? 

Don't the let the guide name fool you, it also covers groups................

"You may be able to use the Inbox to send a message to all users in a course, all users in a specific role, or all users in a group."

I hope this is helpful,

Kelley
