Impact is a tool that we have integrated with Canvas that allows us to send targeted Canvas announcements to specific groups of users. Previously, we could send announcements based on role or institution. Impact allows us to fine-tune our audience. Impact also gives us increased analytics about tool use in Canvas. We will pilot Impact Summer 2023 through May 2024.
