    Too many push notifications? Log in to your Blackboard web account on your computer to change the types of notifications you receive. If you're unable to edit the mobile notifications, your school's Blackboard administrator has set them to be always on or always off.

    Not receiving push notifications? Make sure you turn on notifications for your Blackboard web account AND on your mobile device.
