How do I view Notifications in the Student app on my iOS device?

The Canvas Student app lets you view notification items in your courses. Notifications gives you an overview of all course notifications, such as changes to an assignment due date, newly created assignments, course announcements, or replies to subscribed discussions. You can interact directly with any items that display as notifications.

You can also set Notification Preferences in the app to receive push notifications for Canvas activity on your mobile phone.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.
