In Sakai 2.9 Messages, what settings can I modify?
On this page:
All participants can use the automatic forwarding feature to send an email message to an email address of their choosing, upon receipt of each message in the Messages tool. To enable this feature:
- In the menubar of the relevant site, choose
Settings, set "Auto Forward Messages" to
Yes, and enter your preferred email address.
Send Cc options
Note: To complete these procedures, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles: Overview.
By default, when composing a message, site participants can select the
Send Cc option to forward a copy of the message to the
recipient's authorized email address.
Users with an administrative role (instructors, assistants, project owners, and coordinators) can enable or disable the Send Cc option as follows:
- In the site's menubar, choose
- Next to "Allow sending copies to recipients' email address(es)",
choose the desired option.
Hiding custom groups
Users with an administrative role (instructors, assistants, project owners, and coordinators) can choose to remove/hide custom groups from the "To" field. To hide a custom group:
- From the site's menubar, choose
- Next to "Groups hidden in To field", from the "Add Group"
drop-down box, choose the group you would like to hide.
Note: When composing a message, users with the appropriate permissions will be able to select the hidden group from the "Bcc" field. If only "Bcc" recipients are selected, you'll need to select yourself from the "To" field in order to send the message.
