Permissions, Roles and Canvas Email Conversations Utility

Question asked by Cori Montoya on Jan 8, 2017

Hi.  I am teaching a large (150 enrolled) online course that has three sections, each with a different instructor.  Last semester we added each other into our sections as teachers.  This allowed for us to jump in and take care of something if one of us was away from their desk and an urgent matter came up.  However, there was some confusion when it came to notifications.  We all set the canvas email utility to send messages into our campus email inbox.  On multiple ocassions, we responded to questions from students in a section that was not our own, causing some conflicts.  Is there a way to control/limit who gets the Canvas notifications from the email utility?  Or perhaps adding them in under a different role might help.  Would designer, guest teacher or ta be a better choice?  Perhaps they don't get notifications, but still have the ability to change out a file and assist in the course. 


Thank you for any guidance you can offer.
