Profile and user settings in Canvas

You can personalize your notification preferences to determine which course activities you wish to receive notifications for, how often you wish to be notified, and which method you prefer (e.g., email or text message).

Canvas Notifications

From your Account menu, click the Notifications link to access and edit your preferences.

Adding Text Notifications

In order to receive text messages for course notifications, you must go to Settings > Other Contacts > Add Contact Method to add your cell phone number. If you have a limited texting plan with your carrier, you might wish to limit the number of course notifications you receive via text.

IMPORTANT! If you are an instructor who has taught in Blackboard in the past, you are accustomed to automatically receiving an email when you post a course announcement. In Canvas, you must edit your notification preferences to indicate that you wish to receive an email of announcements that you have created; these are not sent by default.
