How do I change the sender name in account email notifications?
Canvas gives administrators the option to set up a custom "From" text field for Canvas notifications. This custom text can be your institution name or whatever sender information you would like to use. Using the custom text field helps student identify notification emails more easily and improves the quality of student-instructor interaction.
