Changing Your Notification Preferences


This article describes how you can change your notification preferences to get notifications less or more often.


  1. In your global navigation menu, go to Account > Notifications.

  2. You'll see a table of notification options, as well as each contact method you have connected to your Canvas account. For each option, you will see four icons representing different notification frequencies:

    1. Checkmark: Receive a notification right away. This might be delayed by up to an hour in case an instructor makes several changes.

    2. Clock: Receive a notification daily.

    3. Calendar: Receive a notification weekly. The time you'll get a notification is shown at the bottom of the page.

    4. Remove : Do not receive notifications.
