Canvas - Inbox Guide for Students

Students can use the Canvas Inbox tool to send messages to their instructor or classmates. The Inbox tool works similarly to email except that messages, which Canvas refers to as "conversations", reside in Canvas instead of Outlook. The Inbox is accessed by clicking the Inbox button in the Global Navigation menu along the left side of any Canvas page. This article is a collection of technical resources intended to help students use the Canvas Inbox.
