How do I change the frequency of notifications?
A number of settings are turned on by default. Remember that notifications keep you up to date about what’s going on in your Canvas course so turning them off is not in your best interest. Your instructor may require certain minimum settings for your class.
To change your notification settings, follow these steps:
- In the global navigation, in the upper-right corner, click your name.
- On the Personal Settings page, in the left navigation, click Notifications. This takes you to the Notification Preferences page.
- The left column lists all of the activities that can generate notifications. Mouse over over each item to learn more about it. For each item you can choose to be notified right away, daily, weekly, or never. In the column for your email address, mouse over the field for the item you want to set a notification for and your choices will appear. Click your notification choice.
- Verify that the correct choice is displayed for each item.
