How to get Canvas alerts for inbox messages to Gmail account

In previous semesters Canvas alerted my Gmail account each time I sent or received a message through Canvas.  This semester it stopped doing it, and there are no options to set it up this way.  I am not home a lot, and I have limited data on my phone.  My Gmail is set up on my phone so I see it instantly, but I have to actually log into Canvas to see any messages sent through that system.  I am wondering if there is a way to adjust the settings that I am not seeing?  I have gone to the settings in my Canvas account and the notifications, but there is no longer an option for this.  I have missed several important messages because of this, and it is making my life a living nightmare.  PLEASE HELP!!
