The ’email all students’ function is done in Qsis, not Canvas, depending on the permissions of the staff member.
In Qsis, open the Class Roster. Select the option to email an individual student or a group of students.
To email an individual student: Click on their Name and a message will open in your own email account.
To email a group of students: Click the Select All link. You can then un-tick those you do not want to notify.
a) Click the Notify Selected Students button and the Send Notification screen will open.
b) Your email will be in both the From and To fields, this ensures you get a copy of any sent emails.
c) The students selected will be in the BCC field.
d) You may wish to add other staff to the CC field.
e) The default subject can be changed.
f) You can also spell check the message using the book icon.
g) When ready, click the Send Notification button.

No. It is not possible to ensure that all your students receive email notifications about Announcements in Canvas.
Notification Settings: Students are able to customise their Notification settings in the same way that staff members can and can choose to turn off the notifications for Announcements. However, even if they turn this notification off, they will still see the Announcement when they login to Canvas.
Advice: If you are planning to use Announcements to communicate information about your course, advise your students to keep this notification turned on.
