Get content link error notifications for one specific course only?

Currently, global notification settings allow us to get notifications for broken links ("content link errors"), but no such option exists in individual course notifications. I am an instructor/TA for several courses, and want to get broken link notifications ONLY for one particular course for which I am instructor of record. Is there a way to do this in the current Canvas structure? If not, how can I submit a ticket for Canvas to look into this option? (My institution's Canvas site does not seem to provide a contact/feedback option straight to Canvas.)

Hi @yp2397 

Yep, this can also be done at the course level. The notification is meant to act as a global alert in case links break while you are otherwise engaged. You can find the Link Validator under Settings in any course. This guide will help: How do I validate links in a course?

Any time you wish to suggest a feature upgrade, new feature, or support another user's feature ideas you can do so in the Community by going to Idea Conversations.

I hope this is helpful,
