How do I subscribe to the Calendar feed using Outlook as an observer?

You can subscribe to the Calendar Feed using Outlook on your desktop. The calendar feed contains events and assignments from all of your Canvas calendars. Once subscribed, you can unsubscribe from the calendar feed in Outlook at any time by opening the Tools menu, clicking Account Settings, and selecting the Internet Calendars tab.

If you are using an earlier version of Outlook, these steps may differ.

You can also subscribe to the Canvas Calendar Feed using Outlook.com.

Notes:

  • Future events up to 366 days in the future, and past events within 30 days, are included when exporting a Canvas calendar to Outlook. The calendar feed includes up to 1,000 items.
  • Outlook periodically updates but may take up to 24 hours to sync with the Canvas Calendar. Canvas updates may not immediately display in Outlook.
  • If your institution 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 institution for more information.
  • To Do items are not included in the Calendar iCal feed.
