Notifications for External Tools added to Modules

    Our county wants staff to use Canvas for posting meeting notes, shared documents, etc in Canvas. Only assignments, quizzes and discussion boards currently receive notifications. This means when I link in a module to a Google Doc as an External Tool, my groups is not aware of the new posting. I have started making these "Assignments" without a due date, but I think this is insulting to staff. Why isn't everything that is posted allowed a notification? I need a notification for external tools. I can send an email with the Google Doc link after I post the link in Canvas, but this seems like double the amount of work, and Canvas should take care of this task for me.
