Use the Inbox tool
- Log in to Canvas.
- Click Inbox in the global navigation menu:
- Click the Compose icon in the top ribbon:
- In the dialog box that opens, select the course, e.g. IHL Cafe.
- In the “To” field, click the address book icon:
- Make your selection, e.g. Select Students then All in Students.
- To choose a specific student, click Students then click on the student’s name.
- Type a Subject.
- (Optional) Checkmark Send an individual message to each recipient to prevent students from “replying all.” Instead, replies will only be sent to the original sender rather than the entire group.
Please note: If there are over 100 students in a course, individual messages will be sent automatically.
- Type your message in the next field; click Send.
