One of the most requested features in the mobile apps is push notifications.  Most modern apps have this ability and users expect it. Our mobile apps should be a positive differentiator for Canvas.  Push notifications are vital to the perception that our apps are modern and useful.


User goals

As a student:

  • I receive a push notification from the Canvas app when things happen in my course (e.g. when my instructor posts an announcement or adds an assignment)


We're planning to make this available for users in our mobile apps in Q3 of 2015. It'll likely be available for Android before iOS (by a month or two).
