Microsoft Teams is now enabled in Canvas!

What we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! Microsoft and Canvas have launched the Teams integration in Canvas!

When Microsoft Teams Meetings for Canvas is enabled, the Teams Meetings icon will be enabled in the Rich Content Editor in several areas within Canvas. Supported feature areas include Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Classic Quizzes, and the Calendar. Students may also be able to use this tool in the Rich Content Editor within a group.

To open Microsoft Teams Meetings, click the “plug” icon, and then select Microsoft Teams Meetings from the list. Depending on your specific toolbar, the “plug” icon may be under the “three dots” icon which enables a drop down menu containing additional tools.
