How do I change my user settings?

  • Updated:

Customize your Buzz experience.

To access your user settings, click the User Menu and select Settings.

From here, you can edit:

  • The Email Address you want used (if allowed).
  • Your Profile picture (if allowed).
  • Your Sidebar navigation preference. Choose your preferred Activities tool layout from two options:
    • Full View shows the course tree structure in the sidebar when you open folders.

    • Simplified shows only the contents of the folder you’re in. 

  • LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) Privacy. Some course authors use LTI to integrate external applications, like, to enhance your experience. You can choose to hide your email and/or name from these external websites by checking the appropriate boxes.
  • Other by choosing to:
    • Turn on additional visual indicators if color indicators are not effective for you.
    • Hide scores in activity stream and course home. When this box is checked, Buzz displays a checkmark next to completed activities instead of the score. Check this box if you want to hide your scores when working in public spaces.
    • Hide excused items. Use to control the visibility of excused items.
  • Notification Preferences. Provide your phone number and Carrier if you want to receive SMS notification on your phone.
  • Scores and feedback notifications. Indicate what you want to be notified about and how you want to receive notifications:
