Zoom - Importing Meeting into Canvas

A guide on how to import a meeting made outside of the Canvas integration into your course.

If you created a meeting outside of the Canvas Zoom integration and want to make it available to your students within your course, you can take the following steps to add it to the course.

    1. Copy the Meeting ID from the Zoom web portal (
      Meeting ID
    2. Click the vertical ellipsis (three dots) button in the Canvas Zoom scheduler and select "Import Meeting."
    3. Add the meeting ID and click "Import"

The meeting should now show on the course calendar.  You can import a meeting to multiple Canvas courses now.  This is a way that you could set up a single Office Hours meeting and share it within multiple Canvas courses.  

If you want to remove the meeting from a course, you can click on the vertical ellipsis (three dots) and select "Disassociate meeting" and enter the meeting ID in again to remove it from the list.

NOTE: If the meeting does not show up right away, please wait a few minutes and then refresh your course. 

If you have questions, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 608.342.1400 or  You may also visit the Help Desk on the first floor of the Karrmann Library.
