You can select to receive email notifications when you receive new feedback on a submission or a new reply on one of your comments. You can find the notification settings in the user sidebar by clicking the button under “Notifications”.
Here you can configure, per type of event that may generate a notification, if you want to receive notifications for this type of event, and how often you want to be updated. The following events may generate a notification:
Assignee: Someone placed a comment on a submission that you are assigned to as grader.
Author: You are the author of a submission that someone placed a comment on, and thus you may receive a notification.
Replied: When someone replies to a comment or comment thread that you have also commented on.
For each event you can select from the following options:
Direct: Send a notification email directly after an event happens.
Daily: Send a daily digest with all notifications that would have been sent during the day if the direct option would have been selected.
Weekly: Send a weekly digest with all notifications that would have been sent during the day if the direct option would have been selected.
Off: Never send a notification for this type of event.
When you set the author event to direct, you may not receive an email directly when the event is triggered. This can happen, for example, when a teaching assistant places some feedback on your submission, but you do not have permission to see feedback before the assignment is set to “done”; by default students do not have this permission.
Below the notification settings is a list of all notifications you have received over time. Click on a notification to be taken to the comment that triggered it.
