How do I subscribe to the Calendar Feed using Outlook?

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.

This lesson will show you how to subscribe to the Calendar Feed using Outlook 2013 on your desktop. If you are using an earlier version of Outlook, these steps may differ.

Notes:

  • All future events and past events within 30 days will be included when exporting a Canvas calendar to Outlook.
  • Outlook periodically updates but may take up to 24 hours to sync with the Canvas Calendar. Canvas update may not be immediately visible in Outlook.
  • If your institution/organization uses a Microsoft Exchange Server account, you can also subscribe to the calendar feed using the Outlook Web App in Exchange Server. This allows you to access your Outlook calendar online if you are away from your desktop. Please contact your IT administrator at your organization/institution for more information.
