New idea: Messages student Search

Follow

So often I need to go back through my messages to or from specific students. However there isn't a search function in the message bank so that it is easy to find the specific messages I have sent. It would be great to have any kind of search function other than having to trawl through all of my messages back and forth between students to find the ones I am looking for.

    I wholeheartedly agree. A way to search by student name at least would be great.

    Especially because if I reply, then what I see is my own name on the list, not even the student who I communicated with.

    Definitely. I encourage my students to use Message rather than email, but it can take a lot of scrolling to find a thread with a specific student.

    Agreed! This would make the messaging much more useful and functional.

    I would also find this extremely useful.

    Unlike some K-12 classrooms, as a university professor, I have dozens of students every semester, and it can be difficult to find their messages. This would be a very helpful improvement!

    I would love to see this option! Are we any closer to making this happen since this was first reported in spring, 2017?

    Yes!!!! I get about 100 emails a week. Trying to find one from a particular student is difficult. I spent a whole week sorting all my emails one by one this summer. Are we in the 90's?

    Yes! This would be so helpful and save time searching for specific messages.
