    Amen to that! It would also be helpful if the student's name always showed up in blue underneath the message in the archived messages. I don't like how it says "You" if I was the last person to send a message. I want to see the student's name, since it's not in the title.

    The lack of searching capability is not only "nice" to have, but is an absolute required feature. It is inexcusable that they don't have this feature. The current messaging system is actually WORSE than having NO messaging system at all. The fact that it exists means student use it instead of email. I would rather they have no option but to just use email so I don't have whole conversations lost in this trash bin of a system. This would only take a day of work for one of your engineers if not just a couple hours.

    Fun fact - they are charging the state of Texas 6 million dollars a year for this software, and they got a 3 year no-bid contract (Source: Search Schoology as the vendor http://contracts.lbb.state.tx.us/ )

    Edited because they complained to my district about my comments.
