Notes

Customization options are available if you want to include your grade value in Grades notifications, and if you want to allow past, future, and inactive course enrollments to send you notifications. Go to the Customize Notifications section on the Notifications page and select the check boxes beside the options you want to enable.

Users with cascading enrollments will only receive notifications for the org unit they are initially enrolled in (i.e., the source enrollment) and will not receive notifications from any org units they are enrolled in as an indirect result of their cascading role. This prevents these users from being flooded with notifications from potentially thousands of courses.
