How do I subscribe to the Calendar feed using Google Calendar as an observer?

You can import your Canvas calendar to Google Calendar. The calendar feed contains events and assignments from all of your Canvas calendars.

The steps in this lesson are also relevant for those using Gmail via Google Apps for Education. Google Apps for Education provides an Institution Email Account to those institutions participating in the program. To learn more, visit the Google Edu website.

Once you have subscribed to the calendar feed, you can remove or unsubscribe from the calendar feed at any time.

Notes:

  • Future events up to 366 days in the future, and past events within 30 days, are included when exporting a Canvas calendar to Google Calendar. The calendar feed includes up to 1,000 items.
  • Google Calendar periodically updates but may take up to 24 hours to sync with the Canvas Calendar. Canvas update may not immediately display in Google Calendar.
