Canvas includes a set of default notification preferences however, you can change the default settings by setting your own notification preferences.  


To change your notifications: 


  1. Select the “Account” icon from the left menu.

  2. Select Notifications from the pop out menu.


Each notification is set to a default preference. To change a notification for a contact method, locate the notification and click the icon for your preferred delivery type. 


  • To receive a notification right away, click the check mark icon. These notifications may be delayed by up to one hour in case an instructor makes additional changes, which prevents you from being spammed by multiple notifications in a short amount of time [1]. 

  • To receive a daily notification, click the clock icon [2]. 

  • To receive a weekly notification, click the calendar icon. The date and time of your weekly notifications are posted at the bottom of the notifications page [3]. 

  • If you do not want to receive a notification, click the cross icon [4]. 




These preferences only apply to you; they are not used to control how course updates are sent to the student you are observing. Notification settings apply to all courses you are observing; you cannot change settings for individual courses.
