    What information does Google share with Blackboard?

    Google sends a Google ID, basic profile information, and your Google email address to Blackboard to enable you to sign in to your Web Community Manager account. The basic profile information includes your first and last name, email, image, and locale (region and language).

    No other personal information is shared and your Google account remains secure.

    Blackboard does not share any information with Google and your Blackboard account remains secure.

    But I don’t have the Notification icon – where are my messages?
    The inbox is only available for any district that has purchased the Integrated Student Data add-on for the Web Community Manager, and also has either the Blackboard Mobile Communications app or Blackboard Mass Notifications product. If your district does not incorporate these products, you will not have an inbox.

    When you select the Notification icon from your dashboard, the list of messages – emails, text messages, phone messages, and app messages – appear.

    Notifications

    All the messages from your school will be available. To access a message, select it from the list.

    Message page  

    You can replay messages and delete messages.

    Alerts

    If you are on sites that are integrated with the Mobile Communications App or Mass Notifications, or both, can see their alerts in Notifications in the site Dashboard.

    The different alert types include: Low Assignment Score, Cafeteria Balance, Class Grade Update, Assignment Graded, and Missing Assignment. Users can select each alert for more information regarding it. For example, if they select the Cafeteria Balance they see the balance for each student they are related to.
