You can let teachers and students get email notifications from Classroom, even if you don’t allow emails outside of your school or organization. Classroom notifications include updates about classwork, comments on posts, and invitations to join classes. Teachers and students can choose their notifications.
To allow Classroom email notifications, in your Google Admin console:
- If you have teachers and students in separate domains, be sure they can email each other. Learn more about how to let users work with trusted external domains.
- Turn on the Gmail and Directory services for students. Learn more about how to turn a service on or off for users.
- (Optional) Add classroom.google.com to the list of allowed domains in your Google Admin console.
After you add classroom.google.com, the Classroom domain can deliver emails and email notifications, and teachers can customize their Classroom email and notification settings. For details, go to Allow emails only with authorized addresses or domains.
Tip: You can use an allowlist so that users only receive emails from Classroom. Users won’t get emails from domains not on the allowlist.
