How to change notification settings in Canvas - Parents
Notifications are sent to Canvas contact methods specified in your account User Settings. Canvas includes a set of default notification preferences you can receive for the courses you are observing as a Parent. However, you can change the default settings by setting your own notification preferences.
In the left side global navigation, click on Account (1) and then Notifications (2).
Set Notification Preferences
To change a notification for a contact method, locate the notification type and click the icon for your preferred delivery type.
You can select to view an observed student's name in a notification. Select the Show name of observed students in notifications checkbox . Currently only grade update notifications include observed student names.
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.
