How do I edit/delete a calendar event?

The following instructions are for calendar events that are not tied to Assignments or other items with To-Do deadlines (like student-editable Pages).  

If you want to edit/delete a calendar entry for an Assignment or To-Do item, we recommend that you go to the assigned activity and modify the item directly.

Edit a Calendar Event

  1. In the left side global navigation bar, click on the Calendar tool [1].
The Calendar tool is access through the left-side global navigation menu.
  1. Make sure that your course calendar is selected in the list of calendars.  Selected calendars will have a color coded box next to it that identifies the color - this color will be used on the events to designate that the event is on that calendar.  If your course calendar is not currently selected, click no the box next to the course calendar [2] until you see a color associated with it.
  1. Navigate to the month/day that where the event is scheduled.  If the event is in the past, you can use any of the calendar navigation tools [3] to move to other months.
  1. Click on the calendar event [4] you want to edit.
  2. In the event pop-up, click on the Edit button [5].
Click on the event in the Calendar and click the Edit button to access the editing pop-up.
  1. In the editing pop-up you can edit some basic details for your event.  Make your changes and then click the Submit button [6].

    HINT:  If there are some components of the event that you are not able to edit from the editing pop-up, click the More Options button [7] to view the entire event.
The editing pop-up allows you to adjust settings for your event.
