Can an event be created through the Canvas app on an iOS device?

Jump to solution

Students can add an event to their calendar through browsers but are they able to with the Canvas App?

I'll be darned, but you are correct  @mbirky ‌, but only for the iOS app.  I just tested logging in as a student on an iOS device, and indeed there does not seem to be a way to do this.  While the documentation does not explicitly state this, one giveaway is that the screen capture shown that shows selecting a course calendar does not include a calendar with the student's own name.  It is that calendar (the personal one) that such an event would be recorded on.  

On the other hand, a student CAN add a calendar event on the Android app!  Check this page for more:  https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-5063 

So it all depends on which app they have.

With Canvas Student 6.8 (released 3.2.2020), the calendar has been redesigned. Users should now be able to add items to their own calendar. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/canvas-student/id480883488
