If your course uses the Calendar feature, you will see a calendar in the right sidebar.

If you do not see the Calendar here, you can add it from the Add drop-down under Blocks at the bottom of the right sidebar.


Setting a due date for an activity will automatically add the activity to the course calendar. Change what kinds of events are visible in the calendar by clicking on the eye icons at the bottom. All events are visible by default. Hover over a date to view links to events for that date.

You can access the full calendar by clicking the month and year (i.e. July 2017) at the top. From this page you can:

Change calendar preferences

Click Preferences at the top right of your calendar.


From here you can change the following display preferences:

  • Time display - The time can be changed between 12 and 24 hour format.
  • First day of week
  • Maximum upcoming events - may take up a lot of room on the screen if you choose a large number
  • Upcoming events look-ahead - This sets the (maximum) number of days in the future that an event has to start in in order to be displayed as an upcoming event. Events that start beyond this will never be displayed as upcoming. Please note that there is no guarantee that all events starting in this time frame will be displayed; if there are too many (more than the "Maximum upcoming events" preference) then the most distant events will not be shown.
