Email/notification to all students in the system (not just within a course)

Jump to solution

Hello, 

We would like to contact all students through Canvas via an email or notification.  I found the checkbox on an announcement to notify users by notification when it's posted, but will newly enrolled students get this message?  Are there other options, maybe through API, that we could use? 

Thanks for the help!

Justin

@Justin_Reynolds  This is a great question and one that we struggled with for some time.  One of the key issues is that we do not have a student domain so that we can manage or set student email groups for just that purpose.  In Canvas, students have the ability to control their notifications both at the course level and at the account level which makes this even more of a tricky issue.  What we have found is that using the Global Announcements (Admins Only) is the only way to communicate holistically across to all students.  We can do this by sub-account as well so that we are targeting our audience by campus.  I hope this helps.
