How do I filter the Calendar view by course as an instructor?

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 filter the Calendar view by course as an instructor?

By default, the Calendar displays your personal calendar and course calendars for each class in which you are enrolled. However, you can filter which calendars display, including group and course calendars as well as your personal calendar.

Open Calendar

Open Calendar

In Global Navigation, click the Calendar link.

View Calendar

After clicking the Calendar link, you will see the Calendar for all your enrolled courses and groups.

Choose Courses to View

Choose Courses to View

In order to filter your Calendar by courses or groups, click the color box next to the Calendar [1]. The calendar can show up to 10 courses and/or groups at a time. In this example, not all of the calendars are being shown.

Note: Canvas will assign an arbitrary color for each calendar unless a custom color is chosen. Each calendar contains 15 default colors, but you can create any color of your choice by selecting the More icon [2] and inserting a Hex code [3].
