How do Notification Preferences work?

Notification Preferences allow users to select how and when they want to be notified when various events occur within a course. Notifications are applied to all courses in Canvas.

With the explosion of social media and mobile electronic devices, we live in an increasingly connected world. Canvas understands that, and gives you a wide variety of communication options to keep you connected.

Users can set their own Notification Preferences to select how and when they want to be notified when various events occur within a course. Unless these settings are changed, by default users will be notified whenever there is a change in a due date, an updated assignment, or a message sent from within Canvas.

Canvas supports notification through email, SMS text message, Twitter, and Facebook. Canvas users can choose to receive notification alerts immediately, daily, weekly, or never.
