Account level and sub-account level calendar use cases:
All users within that account or sub-account would see these calendar events.
This would also be beneficial for our institution. Right now instructors are putting important academic dates (such as "Labor Day" or "Start of Semester") on their calendars and it is being listed multiple times on the students' calendars. Allowing us to maintain a root level (and also sub account level calendar for important college level events and deadlines) calendar would benefit our entire university.
I'd say you feel as strongly about this YES as I do! lol
The Radar idea stage has been removed from the Feature Idea Process. You can read more about why in the blog post Adaptation: Feature Idea Process Changes.
This change will only impact the stage sort of this idea and will not change how it is voted on or how it is considered during prioritization activities. This change will streamline the list of ideas 'open for voting', making it easier for you to see the true top voted ideas in one sort, here.
Yes please! This would be a fantastic addition!
We have found that at the institution level they only option is to flood the login page with announcements or use another system, rather than Canvas to inform students and faculty of major events or reminders. Please bump this up in votes, as most everyone would benefit from a system calendar that could be controlled by the administrator(s). Thanks!!!
Our teachers announce their assessments to students in Canvas. At the moment, we also have to create a calendar entry in Google Calendar so the teachers can make sure students do not end up with 8 assessments on the same day.
It would be great if the admin could create a calendar that displays all entries from a given assignment group from across the school. That way, the administrators and the teachers could all see what assessments have been scheduled by other teachers, avoiding overloading the students.
Calendar sync would be very very very helpful!
This addition would be valuable to our institution.
Just was looking through some of the ideas with recent activity and saw this one thanks to @sfielder comment. This really should happen, as there are institutions with multiple colleges operating as subaccounts within a shared Canvas instance. The ability for each college to post calendar events relevant to their college without having to spam announcements or emails to students would be a welcome change.
Would particularly like this idea if we could simply embed the many Google Calendars we already use for this type of administrative scheduling.
Also, this needs to not count against the 10 calendar limit students have on their mobile devices. We already have issues with students dropping assignments from their calendar due to passing the 10 course limit for calendars.
Yes please! This would be a great feature to add our academic calendar to Canvas.
This would be very helpful.
This would be extremely helpful for department leaders to keep track of due dates
I've been asked about something like this multiple times. It would be so beneficial for us.
5 years and we're still asking but yet we get confetti submissions that none of us asked for?
Brand new to Canvas. Would love this to happen!
And an elementary font that does nothing to help students.
Why not yet? This is a must have! Make it so, pls!
Our district would love to see this feature.
