Personal Account (Parent): Notifications

Follow

This article details personal notifications for Parent accounts. For information regarding notifications about your child's Schoology activity, please visit the Help Article: Parent Email Digests and Overdue Notifications.

Schoology sends you email notifications for Social, Academic, Group, and School activity that occurs in your account. These notifications pertain to the school, courses, and groups in which you are enrolled (not courses or groups in which your child is enrolled). 

To access your personal account notifications, click the arrow in the upper right corner of Schoology, and select Settings. Then click the Notifications tab.

  1. Click the arrow in the upper right corner of Schoology.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Click the Notifications tab.

  5. Enter your Cell Phone Number (your number remains hidden from other Schoology users).
  6. Choose your Country.
  7. Select your wireless Carrier.
  8. Click Set Mobile to complete.

Note: Email and cell phone notifications differ from the Notifications icon located on the top menu, which provides a running list of academic actions. If you live outside of the U.S. or Canada, text message notifications are not supported at this time. If you'd like to receive the same notifications that your child receives, we recommend adding your email address or phone number to your child's Notifications area.

I can't find these Notification Settings

If your Notifications area does not display these options, it's possible that you may be accessing Notifications while viewing your Child Activity view. To view these notification options, please make sure you are clicking Settings from your personal account.
