Currently all of the courses for which I am registered go into my calendar feed. This is problematic for me. I want to be able to select which courses show up in the calendar feed, or to have a separate feed for each course.
Simson Garfinkel, Selective RSS feed of Calendar is currently open for voting. Does it essentially capture what you've just requested? If it does, please add your feedback and vote to the existing idea--and if it does not, please provide some additional examples that will help the Community differentiate between your idea and the existing one.
I am confused. If the idea is open for voting Wed June 1 through Sept. 7, 2016, then why is it still open for voting?
The whole vote up / vote down system makes little sense. How long does it take for Instructure to make a decision about new product features?
That's a good question, Simson. I noticed the same thing, but decided not to look a gift horse in the mouth.
I suspect it was merely an oversight. Feature ideas have to be opened and closed by a very small team of Community Managers, and it is a tedious manual process. Since you have called it out as an exception to the rule, I will bring it to their attention so that they can close it.
And in that case, assuming there are no other duplicates extant, your new idea will most likely be put forward for voting in the upcoming voting cycle.
Selective RSS feed of Calendar should have been closed for voting on September 7, 2016, and has now been archived.
This idea has moved to the next stage and will be open for voting among the Canvas Community, from Wed. October 5, 2016 - Wed. January 4, 2017.
Check out this doc for additional details about how the voting process works!
Please put this update on the fast track. The ability to select what courses are part of the calendar feed would be a tremendous improvement to those of us who need to sync Canvas to Outlook. I am part of several courses within my district, but only need one or two of their calendars synced. Thanks so much.
While this isn't a fix, I made my own workaround. My district uses Canvas Calendar to push PD times/dates to us and I also wanted to be able to filter those out in my Google Calendar.
So, I wrote a Google Apps Script that I manually configured to trigger once a day.
It's not a pretty solution, but it is "easy" to use. You can make your own copy and somewhat easily configure it to use your Canvas Calendar feed (must be imported to Google Calendar).
Here's the source code on Google Apps Script.
Do you think this would still work with the change Google has made with the Apps Scrpt API replacing the Apps Script Editor?
Hi Lisa Risch,
I've been away from the Canvas Community for awhile, but I just tested this script and it still works! Let me know if you still want to use it and I can write a more detailed tutorial on it.
Thank you, Alex! I'll give it a whirl.
The Radar idea stage has been removed from the Feature Idea Process. You can read more about why in the blog post Adaptation: Feature Idea Process Changes.
This change will only impact the stage sort of this idea and will not change how it is voted on or how it is considered during prioritization activities. This change will streamline the list of ideas 'open for voting', making it easier for you to see the true top voted ideas in one sort, here.
For instructors, it would be helpful to be able to add only the scheduler appointments to the feed. I don't need to know when my students' assignments are due, but I do need to know when they'll be coming to my office. Thanks!
I am having numerous teachers requesting this feature. The amount of classes we have loaded is cumbersome at best and should be an easy fix.
I have 10 different canvas section/courses that I have on my dashboard this term.... I only want 1 of those to show up in my personal calendar...
I was surprised three years have passed since this idea was put here :-(
I do need this feature. I put every plan and due date (either private or academic stuff) on Google Calendar. However, one course I am in has too many schedules I don't attend, and many important ones I have to remember from the other groups are hidden on Google Calendar. The filtering system in Calendar feed is necessary!
Please accept this idea and make it possible!
This would be especially helpful for teachers who are "observers" supporting students that are not in their classes. When I embed my calendar into my google site the those classes that I'm observing also get added to the calendar which mucks up the calendar visually.
Please make this a priority for teachers participating in remote learning.
