Your profile contains all of your personal information that you wish to include and is visible to other Canvas users through the People menu of your courses.
Editing Your Settings
The Settings menu allows you to edit personal information such as display name, time zone, language, and even link your Canvas profile to other social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
Configuring Your Notification Preferences
Notification allows you to select how and when you want to be notified of Canvas events. Notifications can be sent to any of the contact methods you configured in your profile’s Settings menu.
Muting Notifications for a Particular Course
You can mute notifications for a particular course by selecting “View Course Notifications” on the courses home page. From there, you can toggle “Enable Notifications” to either disable or enable notifications for that course.
