Microsoft Teams - Schedule a Meeting in Canvas


Microsoft Teams Meetings integration allows instructors to create and embed meeting links within the Canvas Rich Content Editor (RCE). Once a Teams meeting is created, it can be started and joined from within Canvas.

Before You Get Started

  1. Recordings: Recordings are not stored in Canvas. Instructors log in to ECU Office 365 to retrieve recordings from Microsoft Stream and share with students.
  2. Recurring Meetings: The Teams Meetings app in Canvas does not provide an option to schedule recurring meetings.


Submit the ECU Canvas Help request and choose the Teams as from the Type of Issue dropdown.
