How to Access Global Notification Settings

The notification system alerts you when events occur in your courses, such as when items are due, grades are available, new content and tests are made available, and when you have unread discussions and blogs. Notifications are generated automatically whenever the associated events occur.  The notification settings also determine how you receive emails from Announcements (Immediately or once per day in a Daily Digest at 11pm). 

You can choose the notifications you receive and how they're delivered to you from the Activity Stream or your Profile Page.


Profile Page

1. Click your name from the menu. This is your profile page.

2. Under the Global Notification Settings section, you can set up notifications for your course activities.

Email Notifications

Email notification settings determine when you will receive an email to your GVSU email account for the activity that occurs in Blackboard.

By default, email once per day is selected.  eLearning Technologies at GVSU recommends changing this to 'Email me right away'.

Other settings are optional but will impact how often you receive emails from Blackboard.  If a message is sent in Blackboard via Messages, you will not receive an email to your GVSU email unless you select New Message.
