As a user, I want to be able to keep frequent notifications enabled for courses that have high interaction, that I am more invested in, or I find important. I want to be able to 'down-tune' or disable notifications for courses that have a lot of activity but not much interaction, courses that I am involved in as a staff member, or by my role in the institution involved in but not participating in so I do not receive notifications that I will end up ignoring and then also miss important notifications.
If the premise of Canvas Notifications is to keep me engaged in courses and informed about my courses, I need to be able to control that at a course level for it to be valuable to me and not just a 'firehose' of information. If I cannot control it more granularity, I may turn all Notifications off and then miss something I actually did want to know about.
This idea was considered when developing our product plan for Q1 2019 and is not expected to influence development within Canvas at this time.
- This idea will remain open for vote.
- If this idea is in the next cycle it will be reconsidered.

Note from the Community Team:Notifications by Course also requests this capability. We consider combined support for both ideas as part of our regular prioritization process.
