Parent App Push Notifications to Cell Phone

Jump to solution

How can parents set up push notifications for announcements and messages to come to their cell phones if they are using the Parent App? I know that through the Canvas Parent App they can see alert when they open the app, but I'm wondering if there's a way for them to get a notification sent to their phone that I've posted an announcement or sent them a message.

Yes, they can. They need to each set those settings manually though.

How do I set alerts for a student in the Canvas Parent app? 

How do I create a reminder for an assignment or event in the Canvas Parent app? 

You'd need to share the instructions from the first link and then emphasize the Course Announcements toggle.

Please reply if you have any follow-up questions. 🙂
