Edit the Subject Line for Course Messages?

Discussion created by Mariann Hawken on Sep 4, 2018

Hi everyone -


We have 14 courses using Ultra this semester. Most instructors were happy with the simplified course interface with a few exceptions around wanting a more direct way to create, access, and use groups, the current functionality of announcements, and concerns with the Messages tool. For example, there doesn't seem to be an option to enter a subject line -- we are left with "New Message" whereas in other areas of the course, we can change the New Document or New Test to a different titles.

Is this functioning as designed or am I missing a setting on the backend? If FAD, are there plans to add a subject line? I checked the release notes for this month's updates, which include the message improvements, but I didn't see anything related to the subject line.
