What are Canvas notifications?

In Canvas you can control how and when the system notifies you about different activities that are happening in your courses. Default notification come by email, but you can change that to include SMS or a number of other web services.


  • Notifications are sent as one of four delivery types: send right away, daily summary, weekly summary, or don’t send.
  • Notification settings can be set for a number of events that trigger notifications (such as course activities and discussions).
  • Additional contact methods besides the default email can be added (such as SMS, Twitter, LinkedIn and Personal Email).
  • Notification preferences are attached to your account settings and therefore apply to all your courses, they can’t be adjusted for individual courses.
