Limiting Email Notifications to Students
Crystal Phelps
My students receive emails every time I post things (which is fine), but also when I "clean up" what they view in their groups. How can I fix this so that they are only notified when I upload new material? (And not every time I make a change to the group!)

Hi Crystal.

Good thing you asked today. We just upgraded our notifications and users will be receiving a daily digest of notifications at the end of the day. They will also be listed on the homepage as notifications. We set a standard list or they can follow you and get all of your activity. This is set in the profile, settings tab.

Also, you can hide the tutorials in your group if you've published them in a playlist which is really nice and cleans up the page a lot.

Is this what you're asking? If not, let me know and I'll try again! Thanks, Crystal.
