Self-CC’ing Is Here!
Canvas community, rejoice! Your requests to have a self-CC’ing function on Canvas messages have been answer! Now you can set a new notification preference that allows you to receive a copy of all conversations you create. When enabled, this feature lets you see what conversations have been sent and how they appear in their specified communication channels.
A few things to note about this new feature:
- When you create a group message and click the “Send Individual Messages” checkbox, Canvas generates only one notification for the sent message.
- In Conversations, sent messages appear in the Sent folder.
- When a message receives a reply, the message thread will appear in the Inbox.
Enable “Conversations Created by Me”
