Hi Jane,

The only way to get the zoom links to get added to the calendar automatically is to use the Zoom Canvas integration.  If that is not set up, you'll simply need to add them manually to your course calendar.  https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12797-415241296 

If the Zoom integration is set up in your instance of Canvas (an admin would need to do this) then you have a couple of options.  First, see if Zoom is in your left side course navigation.  If not, go to Settings, Navigation and see if it is in the lower disabled section.  If do, drag it to the upper section and Save.  If you don't see it in either spot there is no need to look further because it's not set up on your school's Canvas instance.

Click the Zoom course navigation item.  The easiest way to work this is to Schedule your meetings from this interface.  It will look just like if you are doing it from the main Zoom page and it automagically adds links then to your course calendar and the Syllabus section in Canvas.  If you've already created your Zoom meetings outside of this interface, try clicking the All My Zoom Meetings link and copy the Meeting ID.  Then go back to Course Meetings, click the three dot in the upper right corner and select Import meeting.  Enter your meeting ID and that meeting will be pulled in to the Canvas Zoom integration and added to the calendar/etc.

I hope that helps and one of those suggestions works based on how things are set up with your school's instance of Canvas.

If you need to delete Zoom meetings in Canvas, will it automatically delete them from the calendar too? I have an instructor I am working with who deleted zoom meetings that they no longer need, but the meetings are still showing up in the Canvas Calendar. 

 

Thanks!

Where in the Canvas shell is "Course Meetings?"

If you need to delete Zoom meetings in Canvas, will it automatically delete them from the calendar too? I have an instructor I am working with who deleted zoom meetings that they no longer need, but the meetings are still showing up in the Canvas Calendar.

Can you show where the Zoom meetings, either created from the Canvas/Zoom LTI or created from Zoom web interface are added to the course calendar?
I'm not seeing any setting(s) in Zoom or in the LTI for calendar.

I am the admin of Zoom and Canvas.

Thanks,

Hello @LexiSchlosser2 ...

If your school has set up the Zoom Pro LTI integration with Canvas and has also configured it so that Zoom adds new meetings to your Canvas course Calendar and/or sends out a message to your students in the course via the Canvas Inbox, it should do the following:

  • Add/Edit/Remove entry from the Calendar
  • Send a message via the Canvas Inbox when a meeting is Added/Edited/Deleted, or when a Zoom recording is available

I hope this helps a bit.  Sing out if you have any other questions about this...thanks!  Take care, stay safe, and be well.

How about copying a previous course?

I'm seeing if an instructor copies a previous course and updates the dates with the import,  that the integration is adding the previous zoom meetings as calendar events in the new course.  

This seems like a bug. 

Anyone else seeing this?  Know a fix?

This video demonstrates how to ensure you do not import previous Zoom links from a previous Canvas course site.

We are also having this issue in a couple courses, where calendar events from previous sessions are reappearing when the course is copied over to the next instance. Did you ever receive a response or figure out why this was happening?
