Introduction: I always thought that to do lists were only for the organized people.

The truth is that we all have a to do list. Some people keep them on their fridge with a magnet, some write it on their hand, and some keep it in their head.

The point is that we all have a list of things to do. The difference between those who are organized and those who are not is the ability to make the list and follow through with it.

I thought that it was something that people who were really busy could do. Little did I know that you could use it for anything. Whether you're the most busy person in the world, or you just need a little motivation to keep you accountable, the to do list is the perfect tool.

For me, I set a list of little things to get done, and when I finish them all, I'm free to do other things.

In the past that means that I have a list of things that I have to do, and that list just used to get longer until I just well had random sticky notes and papers everywhere.


I used to have a book I carried everywhere too but slowly even that book got full and I got overwhelmed.


Then, I got super busy with work and kids, school and a husband, traveling and it was just confusing.

Enter to do lists! I started using the Wunderlist app on my phone, but I would always forget to look at I decided to make a simple phone app with a daily checklist for me to keep me on track but also connected it to calendars. You can check that out here:

Import your Canvas calendar to Google Calendar or Microsoft Outlook

If you are like me and use Google or Microsoft calendar apps to keep track of work or personal events, you’ll love the added benefit from importing your Canvas homework homework schedule too.

I’ve always found it frustrating to manually add items in multiple apps and calendars, only to find I missed something and then I had scheduled something on top of a meeting or something else super important!

But now you can import your homework assignment names, classes, and due dates on your Google or outlook calendars, which then automatically sync with MiPlaniT! 👏

Canvas has an awesome capability where it's going to import all of your assignments and tasks for you and update itself if any of your coursework changes.

No more crazy manual updates!


Google Calendar, Microsoft Outlook for the web, and Microsoft Outlook's are all able to be used, just follow these steps:

Copy the URL for your calendar feed by clicking the link on the right-hand panel on Canvas’ Calendar view.

The link to your Canvas calendar feed URL.

Google Calendar

On the main Google Calendar page, click the plus button next to “Other calendars” and choose “Subscribe to calendar.”

The “subscribe to calendar” button on Google Calendar.

Click the “From URL” option on the left-hand navigation bar and paste the Canvas calendar URL you copied in the first step.

Adding the Canvas calendar URL to the Google Calendar page.
