Push Notifications for Files on iOS Canvas app

Hi folks,


I'm trying to understand how push notifications for the iOS app are supposed to be working. The documentation is scarce on details, and I'm trying to understand whether what one of our students is reporting is the intended/expected functionality, or a bug.


When a user receives a push notification (Canvas iOS app) about a new file, where should the link in that notification take them?


One of our students reported frustration with the behavior of files notification in the app. Clicking on the link directs to the courses dashboard in the Canvas app, rather than going to the files area for the course.


My apologies in advance if this question has been asked and answered before -- I've been searching but haven't been able to find this information!


Thanks in advance for whatever insights folks can provide.
