Discussion thread notifications

Jump to solution

How can students ensure that they receive a notification for responses on discussion threads/announcements which they start? I have students who start a thread but they don't receive notifications about responses until they actually post a response in the thread themselves.

Hi Sarah -

For students, this lesson will illustrate how to subscribe / receive notifications for the discussions:

How do I subscribe to a discussion as a student? 

You’ll see that the small green icon indicates which discussion(s) have subscriptions.

Hi sarah@ioic.org.uk‌,

I believe your students might have disable the option to be notified after they make a discussion. You can show them this guide and have them check their notification settings:

How do I set my Canvas notification preferences as a student?

Hope this helps!
