You can set notification preferences in the Canvas Student app to receive updates about your Canvas courses. Once notifications are selected, notifications are sent to you even if you have not opened the Canvas Student app. You can choose to set notifications for specific communication channels, or you can set notifications for all your available channels.
Communication channels in the Canvas Student app match the same notification options within your Notification Preferences in the browser version of Canvas. Any preferences updated in the app will be reflected in the browser version.
