Tip of the Week: Notifications in Springboard

We know that our students’ lives can be very hectic. Most students simply don’t have the time to stay logged into Springboard waiting for a score to be posted to Grades, a question in a Discussion topic to be answered, etc. Luckily, with the Notifications tool in Springboard, you don’t have to!

To access the Notifications tool -

  1. Log into Springboard.
  2. Select your Name in the top-right corner of the screen.
  3. Select Notifications.

  7. Once you have selected all of the notifications you would like to receive, select the Save button.

A few important things to note:

  • If you select text message notifications, all standard text messaging rates apply.
  • If you change your mobile number, you will need to update your notifications in Springboard with the new number and carrier.
  • If you are graduating soon, it may be a good idea to turn off notifications before you leave the University.
