Can we add the "inbox" feature on parent app? This will solve alot of my issues regarding the app as communication is the main reason for parents to have access in addition to following up in courses and viewing the calendar.
Hi Sherihan -
Right now, the Inbox is not a feature included in Canvas Parent. Since it's initial launch, the Inbox (including vs excluding) has been part of discussions.
I have some good news to share, though!
In the Mobile Update - Summer 2019!, it was shared that Canvas Parent 3.1 will include:
3.1: Messaging. The parent app is getting an inbox! Parents will be able to send and receive messages from the app, and message composition will be contextual. Parents will be able to compose a message from the assignment detail view, for example, and we’ll add the appropriate teacher(s) as recipients automatically. We’ll also include a link to the content being referenced in the text of the message so teachers have a little more context on the receiving end. (Yes, the parent app will use the existing Canvas Inbox to make this happen.)
Awesome updates are in store. We just need to be patient.
Is there a delivery date on this one?
Not yet. However, I'll bookmark this thread and update it once it arrives in the Apple Store and Google Play.
Hi Jo Anne - There was an update provided in a recent blog: Canvas Mobile Update - Fall 2019! While there isn't an official timeline, this shares some insight.
Hi JoAnne -- Canvas Parent 3.0 is available! I hope you like the new layout. More features are on their way.
