Move Calendar Events to a different Calendar

Move Calendar Events to a different Calendar

  This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

 

  Idea open for vote Wed. July 6, 2016 - Wed. October 5, 2016  Learn more about voting...

 

We have had several instance of users adding events or assignments to their personal calendar by mistake.  They had intended to add these to a course or class calendar.
It would be REALLY useful if these events could be moved to a different calendar.

 

When you edit an event we would like to see an option to provide a list of available calendars.

Hi Deactivated user​, and thank you for submitting this idea.

As someone who has made this mistake myself, I would find this feature to be very useful. In fact, when you create the event or assignment you have the option of choosing the Calendar, so when you edit it you should have the ability to change the calendar.

I did find a similar idea that was archived because it did not reach the voting threshold that you can review at

I will recommend that your idea open for voting during the next period, since I did not find any similar current ideas.

It has been hard for me to believe that we haven't been able to get enough votes for this feature.  I will be doing my best to promote it once the teachers and students are back to school next month.
