How do I set up weekly recurring individual conferences with students and link the sign up to a particular Canvas course?
Hi Christopher Fauske Welcome to the worldwide Canvas Community. (A bit of a belated welcome, since it appears you joined us in November, but this appears to be your first post.)
What you are describing is partially answered by the Scheduler tool, which must first be enabled by your institution, if it is not already. Yes, that can be tied to a class; yes, students can sign up through it, but NO--you cannot create a recurring conference that way. While you can indeed create recurring appointments on your own Calendar for personal events or even a class activity (see: How do I add a repeating event to a course calendar? ; the recurring option must first be enabled by your institution) that feature does NOT, unfortunately, currently apply to the Scheduler tool, where appointment sets must be created one-by-one. See, for example, this Feature Idea, which is currently on the Product Radar: Scheduler recurring events . Very recently, Jeff Herring pretty much expressed the same desire as you in his comment in this idea.
Were you able to find an answer to your question? I am going to go ahead and mark this question as answered because there hasn't been any more activity in a while so I assume that you have the information that you need. If you still have a question about this or if you have information that you would like to share with the community, by all means, please do come back and leave a comment. Also, if this question has been answered by one of the previous replies, please feel free to mark that answer as correct.
The answer is that it can't be done.
This is a shame, as it would be really helpful if it could be.

I'm not sure if this will even get seen since the question is marked "assumed answered" but I have the same request. I have been struggling to find something free that will let me set recurring office hours each semester broken up into 15 minute slots for my students to schedule an appointment with me. Right now I'm limping along with youcanbook.me. Oh, if only Canvas Scheduler let me do this! Please please please consider implementing this soon!!!
My institution just made the choice to move into Canvas as the only LMS on campus. We used to use a locally developed blackboard system (which we called Niihka) where it was trivially easy and simple to set up such recurring sign-ups. It appears astoundingly silly for canvas to not have such a feature till date.
Agreed, it would be nice to schedule conferences in advance, along with recurring conferences, in Canvas.
