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

If your institution has enabled the Scheduler tool, you can sign up for any appointments that are created for your course using the Calendar sidebar. 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 Find Appointments button in the Calendar sidebar. If your calendar does not display the Find Appointment button as shown in this lesson, you can only sign up for Scheduler appointments in the Scheduler page.
