Canvas in U-M Slack


U-M Slack


How do I use Canvas in U-M Slack? How do I enable notifications?


Note: The only integration between Canvas and Slack is the Canvas Course Slack Workspace.

Enable Canvas Notifications in U-M Slack

  1. Log in to the Maize & Blue Slack workspace (or other U-M Slack workspace)
  2. Set Slack as a contact method in Canvas
    1. Note: Enter your email address as your Slack email
  3. Copy the confirmation code that will appear in the message from the UM-Canvas App in the Maize & Blue (or other U-M) workspace
    1. The UM-Canvas App will be automatically added to your Apps in Slack
  4. Paste the four-character code (case sensitive) into the Confirm Communication Channel field in Canvas

By default, all notifications for Slack are turned off.

After adding Slack as a contact method, you will need to enable notifications for Slack within Canvas.
