Default notification settings for all users

Jump to solution

We are having trouble with users following the prompt to set up their notification preferences and it's hard to know who isn't receiving notifications. Is there a way for the administrator to set default notifications settings until changed by the user?

Hi,  @kkurzynski ‌.

As tross pointed out, there's no way to do this in the front-end user interface. We updated our user import process. As soon as a new user is created, we use the API to set their notification preferences. You can find the pertinent API documentation at Notification Preferences - Canvas LMS REST API Documentation.

Thanks so much! That is very helpful!

We would really like to get access to this feature as well. We have the same issue with students not opting for notifications and missing out on information and com.
