bniebuhr​, notification preferences are determined by the individual. That means that you and your students can customize how, when, and for what you receive notifications, as explained in How do I set my Canvas notification preferences?​ In other words, you cannot edit students notifications.

If you are making changes to assignments and pages that you don't want your students to see, keep them unpublished until you're ready for them to see those items; you can publish them when you've finished working on them. For that, please refer to
