How do I manage the number of attendees for an individual appointment in the Scheduler?

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.

When you create a Scheduler appointment group, you can limit the number of users who can join each appointment time.

Note: The Scheduler tool is optional. If it is not already enabled for your account, please contact your Customer Success Manager.
