How do I access the Conversations Inbox?
Conversations is a messaging system within Canvas. You can communicate with other people in your course at any time.
View Conversations Inbox Link
Click the Inbox link in the Help Corner to open your Conversations Inbox. The message indicator will let you know how many unread messages you have in your Inbox. Once you read the new messages, the indicator will disappear.
If you right-click or option-click on the Inbox link, you can open your Conversation Inbox in a new browser tab to keep it handy while you are doing other tasks in Canvas.
