We’ve just released our new Private Messaging feature, currently only available for teachers. But we’ll soon roll this out to Parents and Students as well, so that Parents and Students can communicate privately with teachers and other staff. Here’s what it looks like:
Just to recap some of the functionality:
- You can access Private Messages by clicking on the Messages icon on the top right, next to your profile picture
- You can have a private conversation with one or more other individuals (group discussions are supported)
- Your inbox is located on the left side. Unread messages are highlighted in red.
