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

Resolution

Enable Slack in Canvas

  1. Log in to the Maize & Blue Slack workspace (or other U-M Slack workspace).
  2. Set Slack as a contact method in Canvas.

Note: Enter your Level-1 @umich.edu email address as your Slack email.

  1. Copy the confirmation code that will appear in the message from the UM-Canvas App in the Maize & Blue (or other U-M) workspace.

The UM-Canvas App will be automatically added to your Apps in Slack.

  1. 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.
