As Instructor how do I get an email notification of my announcements?

Jump to solution

When I send an announcement to students I'd like to get a copy emailed to me. That happens on one of my courses but not the other. I know from attending a workshop that there is some switch to toggle on or off for that, but I cannot figure out what it is. How do I get a copy of every announcement sent to my inbox?

Hi,  @battenpg ‌, that's the Announcement Created By You notification setting, as depicted in How do I set my Canvas notification preferences as an instructor?  That setting should prevail across all of your courses unless you have specifically disabled notifications from a particular course. That's a brand-new Canvas feature documented in How do I manage notifications for a single course as an instructor?

Thank you, Stefanie. I did not know -- or probably had forgotten -- that I

could click on "Account" and reach that menu. I kept going back to

"Settings" and hitting a dead end.

Hi Phillip,


Getting a notification email‌ when you post an annoucement‌ depends on how you have your notification preferences‌ setup within Canvas. Here is a Canvas guide‌ that will walk you through setting up your notification preferences so that you can get an email like you would like.

Thanks, Brian.

I had either never known or had forgotten that I could click on "My

Account" and find some options there. That worked.
