heard this is possible but can't figure out how to do it!
Hi laura maccarthy Welcome to the Canvas Community!
Quick, simple answer is, "you don't"! Very curious where you heard about this? It might possible be that your school has integrated a third-party app like DropOut Detective into your Canvas Instance, but this is not a Canvas feature.
If you heard this at your school, then i would suggest talking with your school's Canvas Admin.
There are some Alert features in the Canvas parent App. How do I view alerts in the Canvas Parent app on my Android device? Perhaps that is what you heard about.
