Better notification for students that an instructor has made a comment that gets their attention apart from notifications. Perhaps an icon or symbol on the app in the grades navigation pane.
Dorothy, thank you for submitting this idea. Since the idea is specific to the Canvas Student App, we've modified the title to reflect that.
We'd also like to call your attention to this similar idea: Canvas Notifications on iOS (and Android) Does the existing idea encompass what you're hoping to see implemented?
In a way. If a student turns off notifications, how else will they know they have a comment waiting unless they check the assignment. Not every student is diligent about doing so. My thoughts are maybe there is some kind of symbol or icon in the Canvas app on the grade pane or in the to do list. Something that gets their attention rather than a push notification that appears once.
