      Description

      example usage:

      Let's say an instructor has a student with
      disabilities, and the student needs double the normal amount of time
      allowed on assessments as an accommodation. The instructor will
      typically set up a DSS group and then duplicate the assessments, change
      the settings to double the time, and release it only to students in the
      DSS group. However, since all groups are visible in Messages, the other
      students in the class will see the DSS group when they address messages
      in the class, and potentially could find out who is in the DSS group by
      sending an email to that group, which could be a privacy issue. So, we
      would like to have the option when creating groups in the Manage Groups
      area to indicate whether or not the group is hidden or visible in the
      Messages listing. Sometimes, you DO want the groups to show up in
      messages, such as when collaborative student groups are created and you
      want to be able to email one group at a time without having to pick out
      the individual names in the list. But, when the group is something like
      "DSS" or "Makeup Exam" or "Quiz Retake" you don't really want it to show
      up in Messages. Faculty might not even want other students to know that
      a "Makeup Exam" group exists at all.
