Canvas Message Students Who – and Observers! 

As we transitioned to the Canvas Gradebook, one feature that many teachers missed was the ability to message both students and parents/observers. Canvas was listening and now when you choose to “message students who” (have a missing assignment, low score, etc.) you can include the observers!  

  • Navigate to Grades 
  • Choose an assignment 
  • Select the 3 dots and “Message Student Who”
  • Choose the appropriate reason for the message 
  • Make sure to select observers in addition to students 

How this supports you

You can now easily message students and parents from Canvas with your most up-to-date gradebook. It will help make your workflow a little easier.

How this supports students & observers

We can continue to meet students where they are throughout the day with Canvas messaging and support parents with building their use of Canvas as well.
