With 3.7mp2, the notification a student had a message at the top of the screen went away. Right now the only indication a student has a message is in the message panel that appears on the right of the SNAP theme. The problem is that it sits "below the fold" when the semester begins. We need something like before for students and faculty to know they have a message that has come through.
Student or faculty has no way of knowing unless they manually scroll down or happened to check their email (but if you know students...). Also, we had to manipulate the CSS to draw more attention to the unread status, the default bold and gray was getting overlooked.
In Tablet mode, there is nothing that indicates you have a new message.
