Adjust Events and Due Dates: Auto-Populate Importing Course's Start & End Dates

    Has anyone had, or continue to have, the experience of the beginning and ending dates (#s 1 & 3 below) from the course being imported auto-populating when the "Adjust Events and Due Dates" option was clicked? In other words you don't have to look up the start and end dates of the course you are importing from to ensure they are correct (it can get messy if they aren't) and then manually enter them into the beginning & ending dates (#s 1 & 3).

    Set Beginning and End Dates

    This is a screenshot of the step of the beginning and ending dates being adjusted when copying a Canvas course.


    I first noticed that the auto-populating of the start & end dates for the course being imported no longer occurred in November of 2017. It's a big frustration now that it isn't doing this anymore; it is creating a very disturbing hiccup in what use to be very smooth process.
