    Currently, Canvas does not support signups for student groups when making an appointment group within a particular section.  This can be done if the entire class is selected, but if a section within the class is selected, the option to have students sign up as a group is not available.  This is confirmed in the current documentation for appointment groups:

     

    "Note: The groups option is only available if you previously selected the calendar for the entire course. You cannot select a calendar for a specific section because Canvas does not currently support sections in groups."

     

    This option would be quite useful and should be implemented.  There are many cases where a master site has been organized for several sections of a course, and Faculty teaching individual sections would want to set up appointment groups for their section and have students sign up as a group.
