How do I add an assignment from the Calendar?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I add an assignment from the Calendar?

You can create assignment shells from the Calendar. Assignment shells are placeholders for the assignment until you fill in the assignment details. You can also create assignments with differing due dates for specific students.

Note: Currently assignments added from the calendar are not validated against course or term start and end dates.
