Why would I add extra contact details to Canvas?
Canvas allows you to add extra contact details to your account in order to receive notifications from the system. You may want to do this if you have another email address that you access more frequently than your RMIT email, or you may want to add your mobile phone number for immediate important alerts. Please see How to: Set notification preferences to learn how to control what notifications are received by each of your contact points.
How do I add additional contact details to Canvas?
Follow the printable instructions below or watch the screencast. Please note students are unable to see your additional contact details, they are simply used by the system to set alerts. If you wish to add contact details that students can see, you must update the Teaching team information page in the Orientation module.
