Have you enabled muting course notifications?

A question I get frequently is how to mute notifications for courses, specifically courses where they're teachers but not doing the grading. Canvas rolled out the option to mute course notifications, which is a great option for staff. Unfortunately, that settings is for any user, not just staff. We're battling students not paying attention to notifications already, so giving a one-click way for them to disable all notifications for an entire course is going to create more problems.

If you've turned this on, can you give some thoughts on what prompted the change? How did you communicate the change with your users?
