Remove "wiki" and "may make your life easier" from Page change notification

    This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

     

    When a user changes a Page in a Canvas site and the "Notify users that this content has changed" option has been checked, users who are notified receive a notification reading "A page has been updated on the wiki for (course name) that may make your life easier".

     

    This notification is misleading to users for a couple reasons:

     

    1. Although the Pages tool is very wiki-like in nature, the tool is not labeled this way within Canvas, and users do not immediately understand the term "wiki" in the context of this notification

    2. The "may make your life easier" phrase is frequently not relevant or appropriate for changes to Canvas Pages.

     

    An improved notification could read: "A page has been updated in (course name)".
