When you first import your Common Cartridge, the end dates and times for assignments that you've set in alta will also come over into Canvas.

If you need to change the end dates and times after the course starts, you can change them in alta and either you can reimport the section cartridge or manually alter the dates and times in Canvas.

You can change dates and times at the parent course outline level to trigger date/time changes to all child sections in alta. Section instructors will then have to reimport the section cartridge or manually alter the dates and times in Canvas. Note: parent course level date/time changes will not apply to items you have previously changed at the child section level.

Question: Will due dates and times update automatically in Canvas if you change them in alta?
Answer: they will not

Question: Will due dates and times update automatically in alta if you change them in Canvas?
Answer: they will not

If you would prefer to leave out your assignment due dates when importing your common cartridge, choose 'Adjust events and due dates' under 'Options' and 'Remove Dates' under 'Date Adjustments'. The dates/times in alta are required and trigger the gradebook passbook. While the dates/times in Canvas are optional but may be helpful in managing course workflow and deadlines.
