I just posted an Announcement - why didn't I get a copy in my Yale email account?

Each user has control over what notifications they will receive.  Check out our help articles on Instructor Notification Recommendations and Student Notification Recommendations.

SOLUTION:  Update your Notification Preferences

In Canvas, there are 2 notification preferences for Announcements:

  1. Announcements
  2. Announcements created by you

If you would like to get copies of Announcements that you post, you will need to indicate that you would like to receive notifications for [2] Announcements created by you.

Check out our help article on how to update your notification preferences.
