Hi teachers – we think you’ll like this one!
We’ve released two updates to the messaging feature on Outschool.
First: to make it easier to track your conversations, we now bold & highlight the messages that you haven’t yet read. Once you view a message on the website (or if you reply to a message via email), it will be marked as read.
Secondly, we now show “read receipts” on messages you send, to give you insight into whether a parent or other recipient has viewed the message.
2 quick notes:
- If the recipient of your message sees it in their email inbox, it will not show up as “read” unless they also open it in the Outschool website.
- Messages prior to this week have all been marked as read so you don’t start with a noisy inbox.
Be on the lookout for a few more improvements to this feature soon! We hope it’s helpful.
Thanks for teaching on Outschool!
