Messages

The Messages feature allows the teacher to communicate with a student or students via Synergy email. Students will have the ability to initiate contact with the teacher or respond to a teacher email, but students will not be able to communicate with other students or individuals outside of the Synergy system. Additionally, Pitsco Admin can send messages to all users. This communication is used to inform users of system updates, new features, and general news.

Note: Pitsco Admin messages will not be sent out to student account levels.
