- Select the pencil icon composer on the top left corner.
- Type the name of the student(s) and/or connection(s) in the "To" field
- Type your message in the bottom box, next to the paperclip and send buttons.
- Click "Send."
To delete a direct message that you've sent, hover the mouse over the direct message and click on the three horizontal dots that appear on the top left. Select delete to delete your message.
To hide a conversation that you no longer need to access, click the information icon - - in the top right of the conversation and choose "Hide conversation?" To restore a hidden conversation, scroll to the bottom of your messages list on the left side, and click the "Hidden Conversations" option.
If you send a new message in a hidden conversation, it will be restored within the regular conversations view.
