How do I send a message to all course users in the Inbox as a student?
You may be able to use the Inbox to send a message to all users in a course, all users in a specific role, or all users in a group.
If your recipient list contains more than 100 users, your message will automatically be sent as individual messages to each user. As the sender, you will also be included in the total recipient count.
- Messaging all users is a course permission. If you cannot send a message to all users, your institution has restricted this feature.
- Once your course has concluded, you cannot send a message to all users.
- Users display in the Inbox once they have an active enrollment in the course, and users cannot join a course unless it is published.
In Global Navigation, click the Inbox link.
In the Course drop-down menu , select the course where you want to send a message .
Open Address Book

To send a message to all users in the course, select the All in [course name] option.

If your message includes over 100 recipients (including you as the sender), this checkbox is selected by default.
