Notification preferences in Canvas are specified and controlled by the user. Unlike Blackboard, Canvas allows users to customize their notification experience. These preferences only apply to you, meaning your students are also able to customize their notification settings. To adjust your Canvas notification preferences,

  1. Log-in to Canvas at using your SSO and password.
  2. Select Account in the top, left-hand corner.
  3. Select Notifications.

On the Notification Preferences page, you will be able to select 1 of four delivery types: notify me right away (checkmark icon), daily summary (clock icon), weekly summary (calendar icon), or don’t send (X icon).

To learn more about each type of notification, hover your mouse over its name. For example, hovering over the Announcement Created By You notification reveals that you will receive notifications for (1) announcements created by you and (2) replies to announcements you’ve created.
