    This a request for a feature that will permit us to set periodic intervals for assigning peer reviews.  As it is now, Canvas will automatically assign at the deadline or when the instructor decides to set it.  I have a two-day grace period and students who submit during the two-day grace period must ask me to manually assign peers, which means I have to run the tool again.  It would be much easier if the tool would run every few hours until the end of the two-day grace period.  Even better if it would run after each late submittal, but that would require more programming.   All we need is a box that lets us set intervals for assigning peers automatically with a specific end date and time.  For example, run the tool every two hours from 9/8 until 9/10 at midnight.
