Canvas - How do I confirm or adjust my notifications?

Canvas includes a set of default notification preferences you can receive for your courses. You can change the default notifications by setting your own notification preferences.

Notifications are sent as one of four delivery types: notify me right away, daily summary, weekly summary, or don't send. If you change a notification setting, the change is made immediately to your account. Canvas supports notification through email, SMS text message, Skype, and Twitter. Additional contact methods can be added by adjusting your account settings.
