When we first adopted Canvas, one of the first notifications I turned off was comments on assignments. (I got inundated with students putting their names in the comment box.) What I realized this year, was that I may have missed a bevy of student comments, because it seems if they aren't getting sent to my email, I get no notification at all. I could put this as an idea, and maybe someone has suggested it before, but I don't have a fully formed idea on what the idea is.


Does there need to be another notification for student comments? Maybe on the dashboard? Though there's other alerts I already ignore on the dashboard. So I don't know if they belong there, Maybe in the Canvas Inbox? I could reply to them like an email, though how much comment could I make if I'm not looking right at the assignment. What do y'all do?
