Personal Account: Notifications

Follow

Schoology sends you email notifications for Social, Academic, Group, and School activity that occurs in your account. In the Settings area, you can manage which activity generates email or text notifications.

Note: Email and text message notifications differ from the Notifications menu (bell icon) located on the top menu of Schoology. The notifications listed under the bell icon are not customizable. They display information related to course materials and events in chronological order to keep you abreast of academic activity. For more information on the notifications that appear in the bell icon menu, see: What kind of notifications appear in the menu notifications?
