During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI and a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that matches the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your teacher.

Old UI

Use Buzz's Calendar to stay on top of your activities and due dates.

Calendar components

Once you open your Calendar from the Main Menu, you can:

  1. Use the Course Chooser to specify which course calendar you'd like to view.
  2. Choose to View by Day, Week, Month, or All; the list view on the left changes to show which activities are due within each time frame.
  3. Click the plus sign in the toolbar to create a new task for yourself, and the due date you assign appears on the calendar. If you don't see a plus sign, this feature hasn't been enabled by your teacher.
  4. Click Today in the toolbar to display the current day's activities.
  5. Click Sync in the toolbar to sync with an external calendar.
  6. Click on days or weeks in the calendar to display the activities due within those time frames in the list view.

Calendar information

Your Calendar displays the following types of information:

  1. Activity due dates and course-specific blackout dates are represented by dots that are color-coordinated by course. When selected, details appear in the list view; click to open the activity or blackout date.
  2. Domain-wide blackout dates are represented by a square and horizontal lines. When selected, details appear in the list view; click to open.
  3. If your teacher has created an agenda, Agenda appears under that date in the list view. Click it to review the agenda.
