Tech Tip: Setting your Notification Preferences

Set your notification preferences to control when you will be notified of changes to the courses you are enrolled in (such as a committee). This will increase your productivity because you will not need to go in and check if new content has been added.

  • Notifications are sent as one of four delivery types: send right away, daily summary, weekly summary, or don't send. If you change a setting, the change is made immediately to your account.
  • Notification settings apply to all of your courses; you cannot change settings for individual courses.
  • You can reply directly to email notifications outside of Canvas and have the reply appear in Conversations. However, please be aware that attachments added as part of an external reply are not included with the message shown in the Canvas Inbox.
