You can view up to 10 calendars from your courses in the app.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

Note: If you want to view Canvas events in the native iOS calendar, you can also subscribe to the Canvas calendar feed and view Canvas events along with your personal calendars. Additionally, students cannot sign up for Scheduler appointments in the app, and teachers and students cannot create events in the app.
