Adding A Zoom Meeting to Google Calendar from Canvas


When scheduling a Zoom meeting within Canvas, it is also possible to add the meeting to your Google calendar. The meeting should be added from the Zoom app within the Canvas course for which you are scheduling the meeting, and not from the Zoom profile in your browser.  Note that you may be taken to your Zoom account during this process. It is necessary to navigate back to the Zoom page within the same Canvas account. 

  1. Click Zoom in your Canvas course. 
  2. Click Schedule a New Meeting.

  3. Include the applicable details such as topic, date and time in your meeting invite. 
  4. Click Save
  5. Click Add to Google Calendar

    Note:  If you are not signed in to Zoom, you will see the following error: "Access restricted, no privilege to do this action." Click Sign In and you will be taken to your Zoom account. Return to your Zoom page within Canvas and repeat step 5 to add this Zoom meeting to your Google Calendar. 
  6. Your Google calendar will open with the Zoom meeting event details. Click Save.

    Note: If you have more than one Google account, you may have to select the applicable account. When in Chrome, if you receive a "Could not find the requested event." error, you will need to confirm you are in the right calendar. Sometimes this message appears even after your message is saved to your calendar. If it is not, try adding from the Zoom page in Canvas again.
