Create a Class Email List

August 30, 2018

Instructors need a way to email their classes. The ‘Inbox’ tool in Canvas sends an internal message. Each Canvas user sets up personal alerts to notify them that a new Inbox message has been received (or a new Announcement posted, or a new grade received, etc.) and the frequency of these alerts (immediately, daily, weekly, or never). An instructor has no guarantee that their students get an emailed alert through Canvas. To ensure that students get your email in a timely fashion, login to Accounts Services on the Web, ( with your netID > Manage Lists > Manage Class Lists > select a registrar section list in the first column then click the small ‘Create selected classlist(s)’ button.
