Automatically Inform Parents of Missing Work

Automatically Inform Parents of Missing Work

We need to have this feature added to Canvas! It is hard for parents to know when a student has missing work or did not complete an assignment. Most parents are not going to login to their students Canvas to see what they are missing. I ran into this issue time and time again when in the spring we moved to online teaching. This will also really help teachers not have to go through student by student to figure out what the student is missing. It would be nice to have a push notification or something similar added that sends an email/text/etc to parents after the due date of an assignment. That way the parent is informed and can easily see when their student isn't completing work. This is especially important now as we are making a blended learning classrooms!

Hi Amber ~ If your school supports Canvas Parent, some of these features are already available. Families can customize their alerts for each student they observe. How do I set alerts for a student in the Canvas Parent app on my iOS device?‌ While not teacher-initiated, I still think they're helpful!
