How Do I Change the Account Email Notification "From" Name?

Curve gives administrators the option to set up a custom "From" text field for Curve notifications. This custom text can be your institution name or whatever sender information you would like to use. Using the custom text field helps student identify notification emails more easily and improves the quality of student-instructor interaction.

Select Custom "From" Name


By default, Curve will select the Custom "From" Name option and automatically populate it with the name of your account [1]. It will also show you an example of how the name will appear in the "from" field of the email notification [2].

If you wish to change the name that appears here, type your preferred name into the Custom "From" Name field [1]. Verify the example of the name as it will appear in the "from" field of the email notification [2].


Select Default Thrivist Setting


If you do not want to have a Custom "From" Name, select the Default Thrivist Setting option [1]. The "From" name will be posted as Instructure Curve [2].
