All Canvas Users:
Your profile is accessible via the "Account" link in Canvas, or you can view it at www.courseworks2.columbia.edu/profile.
In your profile, you have the ability to:
- Add a profile picture and biography: this Canvas guide shows you how
- Edit your display name
- Update which notifications you receive and when: For Instructors, we highly recommend turning on notifications for "Announcements created by you" (disabled by default) so you receive copies of Announcements that you send to your class. Visit How do I set my Canvas notification preferences? for more information.
- Manage new user features
- For Students, download assignment submissions (one area to download all of your submissions, which may be handy for creating a portfolio of your work)
Important: For email settings, we recommend setting up UNI mail forwarding rather than changing the default settings in Canvas, as this can cause issues with various Canvas features and integrations. To set up UNI email forwarding, visit https://uniapp.cc.columbia.edu/acctmanage/mailforwarding.
