During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

The feature(s) covered in this article are only included in the new Buzz UI. If you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

You can set up Buzz to notify you when certain actions and changes occur, like when a student submits an activity or has an enrollment change.

To manage notifications:

  1. Open the User Menu from the top-right corner of the toolbar.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Under Notification Preferences provide your phone number and Carrier if you want to receive SMS notification on your phone.
  4. In the other notification cards, indicate how you want to receive notifications:
    • By SMS and/or Email
    • Daily and/or Weekly

Is there a way you can add to the student selections 'Notify me when: I have an assignment due'?

This is currently not an option, but I think that it is a great idea. When do you think a student would/should be notified of an upcoming due date?

In my opinion it would be nice for them to get notified one week before the date in Buzz.  It would also be nice to notify them if they miss a due dated. This might be two different options: When I have an assignment due;  When I have an overdue assignment. Thank you!

Hello again! I was also wondering if teachers are able to 'override' a student's options or to input options for the students in a course? So, the teacher can select 'send text message' or 'email' to notify a student when feedback has been posted.

Hi Brad, is there any more discussion with Agilix to add the option for a student to receive notification when an assignment is due and/or when an assignment is past due?

Hello Jocelyn!

A teacher will not be able to modify another user's personal preferences settings. 

I have not heard of more discussion on the topic of notifying students when items are nearing to be due. Please reach out to your authorized point of contact to request an enhancement ticket be submitted to Support if this is a priority request.
