  • The checkbox in the heading can be used to select all assignments.
  • The top of the page displays the number of selected assignments.


Course-Level Notification Preferences

  • The Course Notification Settings page supports granular notifications for the course.
  • If a notification preference is changed for a user’s account in the Notification Preferences page, that preference will also be reflected within each course as long as none of the notifications are manually changed.
    • Once a change is made at the course level it must be maintained at the course level.
