Embedding the Canvas Calendar to the homepage of a Canvas Course

This has been posted before but I'd like to re-open this topic for further discussion.

I'd like to embed the Canvas Course Calendar specific to one course on said course's homepage. This seems like something that would be a no-brainer, but I have found it to be impossible.

I have tried exporting the feed to google calendar, and embedding that to my Canvas homepage but that removes the hyperlinks for each date, forcing students to have to copy/paste urls and making the process more tricky than helpful.

I have also tried using iframe code but that creates a window inside a window and can get very confusing once students start navigating inside the frame.

This issue has been posted for years but I have yet to find a solution. This should be fairly simple to implement from a programmer's perspective, but I may be wrong.

Please help!!

Hello @MrBuff Thanks for posting in the Community.

Looking at this question, it has been posted before, https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Canvas-Instructional-Designer/Canvas-Course-Calendar-Embed-Capab...

Right now, I am not seeing a way in the Canvas interface to do this. Right now we would need to use the workarounds provided in the Community. I know we have been asked about this before, but I am not seeing an open idea for conversation. I would suggest opening that idea up on our Ideas page: https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Idea-Conversations/idb-p/ideas
