How do I view the Calendar iCal feed to subscribe to an external calendar 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 view the Calendar iCal feed to subscribe to an external calendar as an instructor?

The Calendar iCal feed is located in the sidebar of your Calendar. You can import the iCal feed into any calendar app that accepts the iCal format, such as Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, Outlook, and Yahoo Calendar. You can also download the calendar feed as an ICS file. The calendar feed will contain events and assignments from all of your Canvas calendars.

Note:

  • Future events up to 366 days in the future, and past events within 30 days, are included when exporting a Canvas calendar to another calendar program. The calendar feed includes up to 1,000 items.
  • Students will not see To Do items in their Calendar iCal feed.
