A "Critical Message" is a message that will appear immediately after the
recipient user logs in. The user must acknowledge receipt to continue; it
is not possible to use the rest of LON-CAPA until they do so.
Only Course Coordinators and/or Instructors can send Critical Messages.
To send a Critical Message, do the following:
- Select Messages on the Inline Menu or
Send and display messages on the Main Menu.
- On each of the message sending
New Broadcast Message, and
New Messages from File), there is a
checkbox Send as critical message which sends this message as a critical message. Selecting Yes in reply to "Require return receipt?" sends the message as a critical message, but additionally returns a
message to you as users acknowledge receipt of the message.
