Create a Class Email List

January 10, 2019

Instructors need a way to email their classes. The ‘Inbox’ tool in Canvas sends an internal message. Students will only be notified of this internal message by email if they have set up the corresponding alert in their personal Account > Notification settings. Therefore, to ensure that students get your email in a timely fashion, login to Accounts Services on the Web,, with your Net-ID > Manage Lists > Manage Class Lists > select a registrar section list in the first column then click the small ‘Create selected classlist(s)’ button. Your new group email name will be emailed to you and displays on the screen. It becomes active on the next whole hour. The email group membership is synced nightly with the Registrar data to account for enrollment adds/drop.
