What is the Scheduler?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

Scheduler is part of the new calendar and creates appointment groups (collection of individual appointments) that students can sign up for.

Note: The Scheduler tool is optional in the Calendar. If Scheduler is not available to you, please contact your Canvas admin.

When Would I Use the Scheduler?

You can use Scheduler to:

  • Create office hours
  • Schedule TA sessions
  • Schedule lunches
  • Assign presentation times
  • Host Parent-Teacher conferences
  • Host other appointments
