Can I prevent students from messaging one another?
Melanie, at the Instructor level, no. At the Canvas admin level, yes, it is possible to turn off the ability for students to message each other. If you are an Instructor then you would want to talk with your Canvas admin about this functionality.
we have a requirement to prevent teacher to send messages to students and parents, also for students and parents, the messages should only be with the administrator for all "teachers, parents and students"
can we configure it in canvas or not and where is the configuration if its exist, and also is it will be affected also in the mobile app or not
If you have admin rights in Canvas then you should be able to go to the Admin side of Canvas and then Permissions and disable these two permissions for teachers, students, and anyone else you don't want to be able to message people - "Send messages to individual course members." and "Send messages to the entire class."
Hope this helps!
