How to pass course info to Canvas conversations (when creating new email)

I am trying to create a new email within Canvas by redirecting to Canvas Conversations from our app using a URL as follows:

<a id="sendMessageLink" title="Send Message via Canvas" href=";user_id=123&amp;user_name=John Smith" target="_blank">

            <span class="fa fa-envelope-o envelopeMsgLink-Icon" aria-hidden="true"></span>



However, when the new email window loads, it does not have anything in the "Select course" dropdown.


How do I pass the course information within the url above, such that the dropdown gets populated with the course name and it sets this course as default?


I have the course id & course code details.


Kind regards,
