Show more classes in Calendar

    This request is to allow additional classes to be shown in the calendar view. Right now, with a cap of only 10, it is not possible to have the calendar show all classes from all terms. Our terms are consecutive (for example, a term ends at the end of September, with a new term starting at the beginning of October). For faculty and students to have a complete picture of the schedule from one week to the next, they need to ability to view at least 14-16 courses on the calendar at a time. This is also useful when building the course calendar, so that there is not a constant need to change which courses are selected to be visible. Having this option will not increase clutter for anyone (because they can choose to select only the number of calendars they want to see), and will greatly increase usability for those who need to see additional calendars.



    Comments from Instructure

    Currently, we limit calendars displayed in Canvas to no more than ten courses or groups to optimize system performance.  We totally understand that toggling calendars on and off in order to check more than ten calendars works for most users but isn’t convenient in all use cases. For now this is the recommended practice. 


    If you represent an institution that has a very pressing need to allow some users to display more than ten calendars concurrently, please discuss it with your customer success manager.
