Your default email address is used as your main contact method in Canvas and is added when creating your Canvas account. Email addresses are used to create Canvas notifications; they are not used as a contact method for other Canvas users.
If you add another email address as a contact method, you can change your default email address in Canvas.
- In Canvas, click Account, and then click Settings.
- On the upper right side of the screen you will see Ways to Contact. Underneath you will see the email addresses linked to your account. Your default email address has a star icon next it.
- To add a new email address, click +Email Address.
- To choose a new default email address, hover over the email address and a faint star icon will appear. Click the star icon.
More information can be found at How do I change my default email address in my user account as a student? in Canvas Guides.
