Do parent "observers" who are linked to their students get notified via email of any "announcements? "
If they do (or can), is receiving notification the default or does each parent need to opt in?
Hi Hank Isaac - All Observers receive a copy of every course announcement. However, each user needs to adjust their Canvas notification preferences. Depending on their selections, Observers can receive an email, a push notification with the Canvas Parent app, or a text message.
Understood. My question was: Is notification via email the default or do they, as very new users, need to adjust their settings to opt-in to email notifications? Thanks!
It looks like the answer is Yes, by default, the Observer will receive an email duplicate of the course Announcement.
Here's what I discovered when I created a new Observer account and linked it to a student.
