How if at all can instructors add an ungraded discussion to the Calendar?

Hi Mark -

When you create the discussion - click on the discussion navigation link for the course - and then +discussion.  The add to student to-do list is one of the options that can be selected from the options section.

for your information, here is a link to the Instructors Guide for Canvas - this as all kinds of information for everything with Canvas.

As for creating discussions, here is the direct link for the create discussions page

That should help you out

@MarkWallace -

Not sure what you mean by add it to the calendar.  It is done automatically when you create it.  I just tried it out (I did select the add to students to do list) and when I created the discussion it was added to the calendar.

edit - I checked it out a little more in detail.  The key is to add it to the students to-do list.  without that checked, it does not show on the calendar.  With it checked, it does.

 

Thanks. I'm new at this. I can't seem to find anything called a student To-Do List or see a way to check that on a discussion or other assignment. If you can direct me to where I do that, I'm sure i can do what you're saying.
