How do I set Notification Preferences in the Teacher app on my iOS device?

You can set notification preferences in the Canvas Teacher app to receive updates about your Canvas courses. Once notifications are selected, notifications are sent to you even if you have not opened the Canvas Teacher app. You can choose to set notifications for specific communication channels, or you can set notifications for all your available channels.

Communication channels in the Canvas Teacher app match the same notification options within your Notification Preferences in the browser version of Canvas. Any preferences updated in the app will be reflected in the browser version.

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