Sending Messages

The platform provides both email and text messaging for faculty and staff to communicate with students, either individually or en masse. Communicating with students through the platform creates records of those communications, which can be accessible by other staff or faculty on your campus. In addition, it allows for a quick and easy way to communicate with more than one student at once.

Sending an email or text message to more than one student blind copies all students. In other words, the student does not know that the message was sent to more than one student. For both email and text, it looks like the message was sent to them only.

You can send emails or texts to one or more students from Staff/Faculty Home, the student profile, or Advanced Search. Most Action menus throughout the platform also allow for sending emails or texts. See below for screenshots of each of these locations.
