Copying a Calendar to a different course

Jump to solution

I created a calendar of events in one course that I would like to be visible in all courses. Is there a way to copy the calendar I already created without having to go into each course and input each event again?

Hi @JOSHUADILL 

You can import content from another course using the steps at https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Canvas-Basics-Guide/What-is-the-Course-Import-Tool/ta-p/21 

As part of the import, instead of importing "All content", you can choose to "Select specific content", and one of the individual things you can choose to import is "Calendar events".

Keep in mind that this is not actually linking the course calendars together.  It is making a copy of the calendar entries to the new course, so any changes you make later in the original course will not automatically be reflected in the new course.
