Does CANVAS conversations communication also get sent to email account

Jump to solution

Use use CANVAS for online courses as well as web enhanced courses. I have been told by students in both types of courses that when I send a conversation communication to them individually via CANVAS it also generates an email to their university email account. Please confirm if this is so or not.

Hi  @smccarthy ‌!

Depending on each student's personal notification preferences, students can receive a copy of any message sent through Conversations in their university email account as well. Many of my students have their preferences set up this way, and they also like that they can reply from the message in their school email because it connects back with the Canvas Inbox. 

For a more detailed look at notifications, this PDF is really helpful.
