Expected vs Current Behavior: Expected behavior is Teacher receiving notification of chat message, currently not receiving any.

Steps to reproduce: In a team, leave a chat message using a student account. Check for notification in Teacher account.

Screenshot(s)/Screen Recording: In this recording, I leave a chat in the Chat Tool with my mock student account, check my teacher account (I also refresh my browser) and see no notification, then I leave a chat message using the start thread option in my student account, and when I check with my teacher account I do see a notification for that message.

Browser/OS/Device: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/ Safari/537.36

Replit Profile: is the teacher account, is the mock student account.

Hey @cynthia-enciso!

In order to get a notification as a teacher from a chat massage, you need to either mention the teacher, or I believe replying to a teacher’s thread works as well.


I’ll keep this in mind, thank you!
