You can set up a link where students can view your office hours availability and request an appointment. Both you and the student receive an email confirmation of the appointment. You can even include a Zoom meeting link in the confirmation.
Calendly is an online appointment creation service. With a free account, you can easily set up an office hour schedule and get a link you can share with students via Canvas or email. An example of an appointment form is below.
Calendly offers free and paid accounts. A free account allows you to create a single appointment type. This should be sufficient for most faculty. (Paid accounts are $10/month.)
