How do I connect to Yo as a web service in Canvas as an instructor?

Canvas notifications support integration with Yo, a single-tap zero-character communication tool that allows websites and services to deliver notifications on a user’s mobile device. Unlike Twitter or Facebook notifications, Yo notifications show the sender but do not indicate content. Learn how to connect to the Yo web service in Canvas.

Note: Yo is a Canvas plugin that must be enabled by your Canvas Customer Success Manager. If you are an admin interested in integrating Yo as a web service for your institution, create a Yo account for your institution and generate an API token. Then contact your Customer Success Manager with the API token.
