Receiving Announcements and Inbox Messages Created by You

You may want to receive announcements and inbox messages that you send to your class. In order to receive a copy, you will need to update your notification settings.

Notifications received from Canvas to your email address will come from "Course Name <notifications@instructure.com>".

1. Follow the steps to access the notification settings.

2. Once you are in the notification settings page, there are two settings you will want to change:

  • Announcement Created By You
  • Conversations Created By Me

Click the check mark to receive announcements and inbox messages that you send to you class right away. Once selected, the check mark will turn green and the changes will automatically save. You will begin to receive a copy of the announcement or message you send.

"Announcement Created By You" and "Conversations Created By Me"
