Canvas Notifications Recommendation for Instructor

Table Of Contents


Canvas Notifications with default settings can mute some of the most important things that an instructor needs to know. We recommend you choose "notify me right away/immediately" for the following settings to avoid missing out on important notifications from your students, but you are welcome to update them based on your preferences. 

Setting Recommendation:

Below are a list of Canvas notification settings that should be changed to "Notify immediately":

  • Announcement

  • Announcement created by you

  • Late grading

  • Submission comment

  • Conversation message

  • Conversations created by you
