By default, you will automatically be subscribed to all discussion threads you create in your courses and be notified when new comments are posted to the topic.
If you allow TAs or students to create discussions in your course, you will not be automatically subscribed to discussions they create. You can manually subscribe to discussions created by TAs or students in your course. If you reply to a discussion, you will automatically be subscribed to that discussion and will be notified of updates unless you manually unsubscribe. Please also note that you cannot subscribe to individual threads within a threaded discussion.
- You must specify your Notification Preferences to receive updates for subscribed discussions.
- You cannot subscribe to discussions posted within student groups.
- If you import course content from another Canvas course, you must manually subscribe to imported discussions to receive notifications.
