Everyone with a Canvas account can set their own notification preferences.


Notification Preferences allow users to select how and when they want to be notified when various events occur within a module. Notification settings are applied to all modules.  Anytime changes or updates occur in the following six areas, you will receive a notification.


  • Course Activities
  • Discussions
  • Communications
  • Scheduling
  • Groups

The frequency of each notification can be set to ASAP, daily, weekly or never. 


Do not set all notifications in Canvas to 'Never'.  This will mean that you will not be alerted to potentially important information regarding your programme or module.


Do not set all notifications in Canvas to 'Notify me right away'.  This will mean that every time anything changes in your Canvas modules you will receive an email.  You will be overwhelmed with notifications.


You are responsible for keeping up to date with your programme and module information, so cutting off your primary means of communication with us will probably result in adverse consequences.

ACM staff cannot be held responsible for your decision to not be alerted to communications.
