How do I sync course data in Canvas with Microsoft Teams?

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".

If enabled by your institution, you can sync course data from the People page in your Canvas course to Microsoft Teams.

Notes:

  • When enrollments changes are made in a course that has enabled Microsoft Sync, it may take up to 10 minutes for those changes to sync to Microsoft Teams.

You can also view the sync status [3], date of last sync [4], and any sync errors [5].
