How do I make sure students receive announcements

Jump to solution

Hi everybody,

How can I make sure that students receive announcements and new discussion posts even if they disabled notifications for this course?

This isn't possible.  Notifications are a user preference and the preference can't be overridden by an instructor or other user.

Thanks. This is an example of the lately quite common wrong understanding of personal freedoms - to allow students the choice of not receiving vital information about a course????? How can I put this question as a strong suggestion for the Canvas development team to allow this to be disabled on a course or even institutional level...

 

Thanks in advance!

You can submit a Feature Idea here in the Community if you want.  But you'd also want to search first to see if a similar idea already exists to avoid duplication of Feature Ideas.  You can learn more about how this all works in these three documents:

Hope this helps a bit!
