How do I add an event to the course Calendar?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). This lesson may include two images for specific steps to show the difference between the two designs. Unless otherwise indicated, the functionality and location of the components remain the same. The view available to you is determined by your institution.
A Canvas event is a non-graded Canvas activity. Events you create on the Calendar will not appear on the Assignments page or in the Gradebook. But they will show up on the Syllabus page and student calendars. You can create events with due date times as well as all-day events.
For example, you may create a course event with a link to the readings that you want students to do in preparation for a class discussion in the Calendar. You will not grade students on whether or not they have done the reading, but you are providing the readings on a specific day to help them organize their time more efficiently.
If you want to add multiple copies of the same event, learn how to create a recurring event.
Add Event Details
Enter a title for the event . In the date field , edit the date if necessary. Specify the start and end time for your event . To create an all-day event, leave the From fields blank so there is no start and end time for your event. If a location is required, enter a location for the event . In the Calendar drop-down menu , select the course calendar for the event.
To add a description or link to resources for your event, click the More Options button .
If you only want to create the event as a placeholder and add details later, click the Submit button . You can edit your event at any time.
