Canvas Global Announcement Request

Canvas Global Announcements offer brief and timely information to Canvas users. Global Announcements display as a notification on the top of a user's Canvas dashboard. 

Submission Guidelines

  • To be considered for approval, announcements must clearly pertain to academic matters or to relevant technical issues and must be of interest to the majority of Canvas users.   
  • Requests should be submitted 14 days ahead of the desired publication date.  
  • No more than two Canvas Global Announcements will be displayed at one time. 
  • Announcements are typically published on Mondays and remain for five business days.   
  • Global announcements will be approved at the discretion of the LMS Service Advisory Board or designee.
