Linking Calendly to your Canvas for Office Hours

Some of you mentioned that the “Quick Links” on the Canvas blueprint were not hyperlinked. This is something you may need to set up yourself. For the “Request a Reassessment”, we do not have a common form for this. Feel free to use Microsoft Forms or another method for this.

For the “Schedule an Office Hours Appointment” you may want to use Calendly to make this more efficient.  Calendly is a free tool that can be used to schedule appointments, similarly to if you wanted to schedule a haircut in the U.S.  In the free version, you can have one event available only (you cannot have two events, one for each class) and you can only do one-on-one meetings.

Here is how to set up your Calendly and link to Canvas:

  1. Set up an account on Calendly
  2. Create the event and adjust settings to match your Office Hours
  3. Copy the link
  4. Go to “Edit” on your Canvas Homepage
  5. Click on the picture for “Schedule an Office Hours Appointment” and link it to your Calendly using the toolbar on the top.
