Is there a way for an admin to send a message to all students in Canvas?
Beth, we have a course in Canvas (Student Resources - tutorials, links to guides, video, etc) that all students who are using Canvas are enrolled in. We do this enrollment by semester - so each semester is in the course as a different course section. This allows me to message all students in Canvas (for a specific semester) through the Canvas inbox. We find this method highly effective and very useful when we need to communicate information to students.
Beth, admins can send Global Announcements, and choose which user types receive it. Please refer to How do I create a global announcement in an account?. I've shared your question with the Canvas Admins group to see if they can provide more insight on messages specifically.

That's a good idea. We don't do that. I found where we can do global
announcements, but I'll look into doing it your way. It might come in handy!
