Single Item Due Date and Time Changes 

To change both the available and due dates and times of assignments or assessments (quizzes or tests) navigate to the Course you'd like to make edits in and click Manage. To edit the due date and time of a single item, click the three dots to the right of it and select Edit. Make your change under Available Date and Time or Due Date and Time and click Save.

You can also change dates and times within an individual Section. To do this, access your Section and then follow the same path: choose Manage, then the three dots and Edit next to the item on which you want to change dates and times. 

How do changes at the course level affect the section level?

Changes to dates and times made at the course level are reflected on the same item at the section level. However, if you edit a date and time on an item at the section level, any subsequent changes to the date and time made at the course level will not override that section level change. Changing dates and times at the section level means that the item is no longer connected to edits made to the same item at the course level.

Bulk Due Date Changes

To edit the dates of multiple items, navigate to your course and click Manage to access your course outline. Check the boxes next to the items you’d like to change the dates of, and click either Edit Start Date or Edit End Date. In the calendar, choose the new date and then click OK.

Your change will automatically be saved. If you’re using an LMS, you will also need to make this change in your LMS to reflect the new due date in the LMS course, however, the students’ grades will be automatically reflected in the LMS gradebook at the new due date. This also applies if the new due date has passed, wherein the new grades will be retroactively updated.

You can also do this in the Section Outline: 

Access your Section and then follow the same path: choose Manage, check the boxes next to the items you’d like to change the dates of, and click either Edit Start Date or Edit End Date. In the calendar, choose the new date and then click OK. 

Note: you are not able to edit available and due times in bulk. To edit the time of each item, click the three dots to the right of the item, and then Edit.
