Starting January 16, 2021, Canvas will support push notifications in the Canvas Student app related to announcements, assignments, events, conversations, and collaborations. Details about each of these notification types can be found in the Canvas Notifications PDF.
Note to Faculty & Staff
Students often use the Canvas Student app to access your Canvas course on the go using their iOS or Android devices.
The Canvas Student app allows students to subscribe to push notifications, so they can easily stay up-to-date with your course work even when they’re not at their desk.
Please note: Email notifications in Canvas aren’t going away, but to reach more students, you may want to encourage them to utilize push notifications on the Canvas Student app.
