Mass change existing Calendar event content?

Question asked by Tim Batiuk on May 16, 2019

Hi there,

 

Does anyone know if it is possible to use API or otherwise to make mass changes to existing Calendar events, such as the text inside the event description?

 

I'm having an issue where a LTI (Zoom) creates automated Canvas Calendar events with a URL in the description, but the format of the link needs to be different to direct students to the web client instead of desktop app. The developers have said that they are unable to add that functionality to the LTI itself. Basically, "/j/" within the URL would be changed to "/wc/" and then "/join" would be appended at the end.

 

If anyone is familiar with some way to make mass changes to Calendar events that could achieve a purpose like this, I'd appreciate hearing about it! Thanks much.
