Students' Guide to Canvas

Personalizing Canvas

Profile settings and notifications preferences are great places to start getting to know Canvas.  Access your user preferences by clicking the Account icon in the Global Navigation Menu, then choosing Settings.  On your Settings page, you can add email addresses or mobile numbers as Ways to Contact, connect other web services, or add a profile picture.

Read and modify your Notifications preferences so that you get the information you want, when and how you want it.  Access Notifications preferences from the left navigation panel of your user settings.  Adding Ways to Contact or installing the mobile app adds another column to customize in Notifications preferences.
