How do I add an additional email address as a contact method in Canvas?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). This lesson may include two images for specific steps to show the difference between the two designs. Unless otherwise indicated, the functionality and location of the components remain the same. The view available to you is determined by your institution.

You can add additional email addresses that your classmates can use to contact you.

Once you have enabled the contact method, learn how to set notification preferences.
