Canvas iOS - Setting Notifications Preferences in the Canvas iOS app.

You can set notification preferences in the Canvas app to receive updates about your Canvas courses. Selected updates are push notifications, meaning notifications are sent to you even if you have not opened the Canvas app. You can choose to set notifications for specific contact methods, or you can set notifications for all devices.


The images shown in this document are taken from an iPhone but unless otherwise noted an iOS tablet will mirror the same steps. 

*Note: Because mobile notifications are currently limited, mobile preferences override preferences in the browser version of Canvas. Additionally, daily and weekly notifications are not currently available in the app.
