Notifications for <assignment has been graded> emails not as helpful as they should be

Really frustrating that the email notification that Canvas sends out are a) missing the important info (what IS the grade), b) cannot be acted on immediately (the "you can review the assignment" link goes to the high school page where the user then has to select "student/parent/teacher" login portal. WHY?

<AssignmentName> has been graded for <StudentName> graded: Aug 25 at 10:30am


Can the Canvas team modify this so the email notification actually does the job the parent wants done:: include the grade in the email?

Proposed solution: <StudentName> received <Score> out of <OutOf> on <AssignmentName>; graded: <Date/Time>

Hi @DouglasW1 -

This may be based on your notification preferences. I know for Observers, they can opt-in to have the student's name included in notifications. That check-box is at the top of the list. Additionally, I believe you can select to include grade information. How do I set my Canvas notification preferences as an observer? 

If you have any follow-up questions, please reply! The Canvas Community will do its best to help!
