Canvas calendar message

When you first log into the Student Portal, you will see a message asking if you want to see your Canvas calendar in MyAucklandUni.

Simply click "Yes, show me my Canvas calendar!". You will be taken to a page on Canvas. This page will ask you to authorise MyAucklandUni to use your Canvas data. Once you have authorised this, you'll be taken back to MyAucklandUni.

You will only need to do this once.

Colour coding

Each calendar within the MyAucklandUni Calendar is coloured differently to help you understand the different event types.
