How do I compose a message with members of a Group?
You can use Conversations to create a message with entire student groups or members of a group.
Click the Compose icon to start a new message.
Filter by Group
In the Courses drop-down menu, select the Groups filter. Then select a Group name.
Add your recipients in the To field. You can type the recipients' names directly in the To field , or you can use the Group Roster .
To send a message to multiple recipients in the group roster, press the command key (Mac) or the control key (Windows) and click the name of each recipient you'd like to add to your message. Pressing the keyboard key will keep the roster window open.
Filter by Course
You can also select a group from within a course. Choose a course from the drop-down menu . To select a group from the course roster, click the Address Book icon  next to the To field. From the address book, locate and click Student Groups .
Note: This feature is part of permissions; users will not be able to send a message to an entire group if the Send Messages to the Entire Class permission is not allowed within the course.
Locate and click the group name.
In the compose message window, you can:
- Enter a subject line
- Optional: Select the Send individual messages checkbox to create individual messages for all recipients in the To: field.
- Type a message
- Attach files or media
- Click the Send button
Note: If you do not want a student to see all recipients in the message, click the Send individual messages checkbox.
