I am a parent and I have two students in one school system. How do I see each student's calendar separately without having to reselect all of the classes on the calendar?
You can only do this if your district has enabled the Parent App. The web version of Canvas currently does not have this feature.
Thanks for the comment. However, I'm not sure what the Parent App is. How would I know whether it is enabled in our system?
Also, you said the web version of Canvas does not have this feature. I guess I'm aware of Canvas being available as an internet based tool. I've also seen it as a mobile app. I'm not aware of other platforms where parents would have access. Can you clarify this part of your answer?
Sure. When I say the web version, I mean accessing it from a computer through a browser. There is a Canvas App for both IOS and Android that you can always use. The Parent App is a separate app and the district chooses if they are going to enable. There are reasons they may not want to use it. We don't in our district. You should check with your child's school to see if it is used in your district. What we do in our district is recommend that you color code the courses so it is easy to turn off per student in the calendar. So if on your dashboard you click the pencil on the course, you can select a color. You can set each of your students course to all one color so if your children are John and Sue, maybe all John's courses are Green and All Sue's courses are red. In the calendar their courses will show that color and you can easily turn off all the green ones and turn on all the red ones.
David, TERI is giving you great insight! You can read more about the Canvas Parent App here: What is the Canvas Parent App? As Teri said, you'll need to reach out to your child's school if this is of interest to you and to see if they are using it or plan to use it.
Sorry, our school system does not use the Canvas Parent App so the answer above is not helpful. Additionally, I can't even put both of my kids classes one one calendar. There appears to be a limit. I suspect that I will have to get my kids usernames and passwords so that I can view their calendars separately.
This really shouldn't be this difficult. How about you fix the online software? Trying to navigate Canvas online is difficult enough. I can't imagine doing it on a smaller screen with the Parent App.
