How do I sign up for a Scheduler appointment in the Scheduler page?

If your institution has enabled the Scheduler tool, you can sign up for any appointments that are created for your course using the Scheduler page. Appointments can include office hours, group presentation time slots, and lunch with an alumnus.

Scheduler is an optional feature that may not be available to you in the Calendar.

Note: Currently, Scheduler has two options for viewing appointments. This lesson is for users with the Scheduler button as a calendar view. If your calendar does not display the Scheduler button, you can only sign up for appointments in the calendar sidebar.

In the sidebar, select the calendar for the course you want to view. Viewable calendars include a color in the checkbox.

If you are enrolled in more than 10 courses and groups, you may have to toggle the calendar checkboxes to view a specific course. If you cannot view a course calendar, you also cannot view scheduler events for the course.
