Many of us have seen abuse of the messaging system. This can include everything from people making irrelevant small talk in a chat for the entire class down to students being bullied because of political affiliation. There are cases of students arguing and name calling in a class message thread. These things are certainly and abuse of the system and can be an abuse of individuals. Online abuse is serious and abuse of the system is annoying. It should be reported properly. Reporting would include a notification to the professor and possibly to LS admin.157 votes
Thank you for your request. It has been added to the ticket system. Enhancement Request #5299
Lots of classes never use the LS messages feature but provide a tempting avenue for fellow students to spam others with requests to take endless Qualtrics surveys for other classes, annoying freshman looking for people with plans for the weekend, etc. Spam that no ones cares about but we're forced to look at thinking it might actually be something important.
It would be awesome if Learning Suite had an option in the Messages tab to only allow messages to be received from professors or TA's to ensure that only *relevant* messages get through. Please. Think of our collective sanity.12 votes
Learning Suite messages often start to discuss one thing and end up talking about the most random things. Most often, messages are irrelevant for the majority of the class.
It would be nice to have a way for a user to leave these group messages so that they don't have to deal with constant annoyance once a group message has been created.
PS: Not sure if deleting/archiving the message does something like that. If it does, how about changing the 'Delete' button to something like 'Delete and Leave message' or something more informative?8 votes
Sometimes people just are chatting or posting unnecessary messages on the messaging system, which go to ALL the students in the list.1 vote
