Managing your course messages can be done by creating folders.

By default, Connect automatically creates Inbox and Sent folders.

You can create folders and move messages between them. Messages can only be assigned to one folder at a time.

This document will show you how to:

  • Create a message folder
  • Move messages to a folder

Effective Practices

  • Create folders based the subject of a message.
  • Use folders to organize correspondence with student groups.
  • Use folder names based on course activity, e.g. modules, discussion threads.

Create a message folder

  1. Under Course Management on the left-hand hand sidebar, click Course Tools.
  2. Click Messages.
  3. At the top of the section, click Create Folder.
  4. In the 1. Add Folder section, create a name for the folder.
  5. Click Submit at the top or bottom of the page.

The folder has now been created.

You can repeat these steps to create as many folders as you would like.
