Setting Default User Notification Preferences via API

The default notification settings are different than our recommended settings for our parents.  We would like to automatically set those preferences any time we create a new user.  It looks like we can do this using the Notification Preferences API calls.  I'm curious whether anyone currently uses the API to set user notification preferences and whether masquerading is required (as implied in this thread:  https://community.canvaslms.com/message/4276#comments).

 

I'll take any lessons learned or suggestions any one may have.

 

Thanks!
