Are students automatically notified when a quiz is due?
Hello, Marsha, and welcome to the Canvas Community! Notifications are customizable at the user level, so what, when, and how students receive notifications on items is a function of how they have set their notification preferences. You can read more about that here: How do I set my Canvas notification preferences?
If you have created a new quiz in a published course, and have set a due date--and if students have their notification for that item set accordingly--they will receive a notification that there is a new quiz. But they can choose to turn it off. So the notification would never be automatic, because it is user-customizable.
Having said that, students will always have a coming up list of action items on their Dashboard, so although this is not the same as an automatic notification, as long as they have actually logged into Canvas and are looking at their Dashboard, they will see that a quiz due date is coming up. For that, please have a look at How do I use the To Do list and sidebar in the Dashboard?
Thank you for the information. I just checked out both links and they will be really useful.

Students will be notified of new content when it is published, but if the item is published but the availability is future-dated, they won't receive a notification when the content is available. Nor will they receive an automatic reminder when the item is due.
If you think there should be a way to send automatic reminders when a future-dated quiz becomes available, please consider voting for this feature idea: Notifications when new content or assignments become available.
If you think there should be a way for students to sign up for automatic due date reminders, please consider voting for this feature idea: Automatic due date reminder notifications.
