Canvas alerts users (normally instructors) about administrative changes.  These changes include when the instructors:

  • are enrolled in course
  • generate reports
  • export course content
  • migrate reports
  • have a new user account created for themselves
  • have created or enrolled in new student groups

Most users do not want to receive these notifications.  The instructions below allow for users to disable these notifications and others.
