Notification Preferences allow you to select how and when you want to be notified when various events occur within a course. Notification settings are applied to all courses. You can also choose how often you want to receive Canvas notifications.
First, set the ways you want to be notified. Canvas supports notification through email, SMS text message, and Twitter. Your account already has your school email address as a communication channel.
If you want to receive notifications as text messages on your phone, click on the Account icon in the left-hand corner and then Settings. Then click the Add Contact Method on the right.
Set Your Notifications
Under Settings, click Notifications on the left. You can hover your mouse over a course activity item to see a description of that notification. Hover over the notification type you want to change and choose to receive a notification immediately, daily, weekly, or never.
