Automatic due date reminder notifications

Automatic due date reminder notifications

(8)

Please add a notification option (preferably turned on by default) that sends a reminder notification 24 hours before a quiz or an assignment is due, to any student who has not already submitted it.  Currently it is only possible to send these reminders manually.   If there were automatic due date reminders, it would significantly improve my quiz completion rates.

Yes, please. This feature is actually a request that a parent has made. This is not just good for teachers but students and parents too!

Yes please!! Students are asking for this.

Can't imagine why this is still "Open for Conversation"... now more than ever (with an entire year of online learning, YES our students need reminders (and with our entire lives on ZOOM) it's really challenging as an educator to send reminders individually to all my not as tech savvy students every day before an assignment is due. 

Where do I UPVOTE?

200% needed!!!!!!!!!!!

Go Canvas, work on it.

VOTE UP!!!

How has this feature not been implemented?  Yet again another way that Canvas is falling behind its competition.  Especially with the COVID situation right now where most learning has moved online, we really need help reminding our students about deadlines!  I don't have time to send daily reminders to all of my classes about upcoming work, it would be great to have this be automated.  Where is your responsiveness during this epidemic?  Everyone else has VASTLY improved their software to support larger classes, broader use of bandwidth, and online instruction.  I haven't seen anything from Canvas since COVID struck.  Get with it and help us out!

To my knowledge, I have all the alerts set. However I have still missed some assignments by the due date this semester. I think it would be extremely beneficial to have a feature that will notify us when we have not submitted an assignments, just like an reminder. If an assignment has not been submitted by either a default 24 hours or even a custom set time, the system can text and/or notify via app us that the following assignments have not been submitted.

Great idea. Allow the reminder time to variable, please, and allow students to opt-out of the reminders if they wish.

Hi, it is purely frustrating to use canvas notifications system. Please institute a due date based notification. I am constantly forgetting to submit homework because there is no notifications for when something is due. Please don’t just make a 24hr notification either because as a student it’s useless. Instead please make it like 30m or 10m r 5m before it’s due to remind us to turn it in. Also teachers who use canvas do mass uploads which then notify us when we have new materials which make them useless. Many of my teachers spend their weekend opening or uploading all the assignments for the following week and then as a student I never see the notification for when the assignment is due. Please I beg you implement a better notification system so I can be reminded about assignments. Your interface is sometimes very hard to navigate and sometimes teach aren’t very tech savvy. You already have the due dates/times please make a notification for it.
