Canvas Tools

Integrate Canvas Calendar Feed into Outlook Calendar

Last updated on May 10, 2024

The native calendar tool in Canvas will automatically update with due dates you have created for quizzes, assignments, and discussions. This is a helpful tool for tracking and viewing due dates all in one place. You may, however, prefer to use the Outlook calendar, which automatically updates with all your Teams meetings and event invites sent through Outlook. To view all assignments and meetings in one calendar, you will need to add the Canvas calendar feed to your Outlook calendar.
