Canvas Scheduler enables an instructor to create appointment groups. Appointment groups create a block of time where students can meet with you. Students can sign up for appointment times in their own calendars.
Appointments display in your calendar after a student or group has reserved a time slot. Appointment details are also included when you export the calendar using the Calendar feed.
Canvas Scheduler is a part of the Canvas Calendar. Begin by logging in to Canvas.
