Add a function where users can receive desktop notifications from the Canvas website.
This is exactly what I wanted! In the Notification Preferences page in Canvas, there should be an option where the user can allow Canvas to show desktop notifications when a notification arrives (for Inbox Messages, Grades, Discussion Posts, etc), instead of having it go to your email, not removing the option for the email, but just adding the option for those who may want to use it.
YES! Something like a browser extension for Canvas and a badge appears or produces a sound. It's hard to notice something new pops up when you're working heavily on your laptop and not on your mobile devices. I missed students' messages in my inbox because I didn't get a notification for them. 😞
