Can I turn off notifications for one of the courses while remain alerted for others?notification email
Hello there, Sybil Wang Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thanks for posting your question. Unfortunately, notifications are an "all or nothing" type of deal...meaning that your Notifications screen in your Canvas profile applies to all courses...not just select courses. (For reference: How do I set my Canvas notification preferences as a student? and How do I set my Canvas notification preferences as an instructor?) There is a Feature Idea here in the Community called Notifications by Course which I would encourage you to look through. If you feel that this Feature Idea is similar to what you would like to see implemented in Canvas, please consider adding your vote and maybe also adding a comment in that thread as to why it is important to you. The folks at Instructure do read our comments as they are developing new things for Canvas. I know this probably isn't the answer your were looking for, but I hope it helps a bit.
If it's just to get rid of notification alerts in your email, then as a last resort work around you may create a rule in your email system that automatically moves messages with a heading containing "[course name]" to the bin. But beware that any direct email messages from students or colleagues containing the course name will also end up in the bin.
I was also looking for the possibility to switch notifications on or off for individual courses.
My situation is such that I give some lectures in courses not run by me, and I now receive loads of notifications from these courses.
A potential work-around would be to accept the invitation to join a course just 1-2 weeks before my lecture/seminar and then leave the course after my lecture/seminar. However, so far I've not seen a way to "leave" (remove myself) from a course.
In conclusion, the possibility to "override" general settings for individual courses would be a most desirable feature.
