Can I add students to an MS Team using Canvas roster?

Last updated on October 19, 2021

The short answer is no, you can’t add students to a course Team through Canvas. Teams does not have access to your Canvas class and cannot currently populate a Teams course automatically. You will need to add each student individually to your course Team. You typically only need to type the first few letters of each student’s name and then select their name from the list of suggestions.

Teams and Canvas do have some basic integration that enables you to create a meeting from within a Canvas assignment, page, or announcement. This means if you want to create a one-time meeting while you’re already in Canvas, and then share the link to that meeting with your students, you can do so in Canvas. That is essentially where the integration ends at this point in time.
