If you do not want to receive a notification, click the remove icon .

Set Push Notifications
If you have enabled push notifications in the Canvas by Instructure app, the Notifications page displays a Push Notification column. Please be aware that push notifications can only be sent to your mobile device right away or not at all—daily and weekly notification options are not supported.
Additionally, setting preferences inside the app will override preferences set in the notifications page.
