How-To: Message Students Who in Canvas Gradebook

Send Targeted Messages to Students from Gradebook

Through Canvas Gradebook, you can identify & select individuals to receive a targeted message. These messages could be reminders about unsubmitted work or notifications about grades. 

What is a targeted message?

Use the "Message Students Who" feature in Canvas Gradebook to message students whose work:

  • hasn't been submitted yet 
  • hasn't been graded yet
  • scored less than #
  • scored more than #

Although one message most likely will be sent to multiple students at the same time, each student will receive an individual message. 

Step-by-Step Instructions

A  Canvas User Guide is available if you prefer to read step-by-step instructions.
