    If a due date is 11:59pm, student submissions at 11:59:59pm should not be counted late.

     

    Instructors can't (and shouldn't) enter seconds for a due date. Currently, the default seconds for due date is 00, so if a due date of 11:59pm is entered, Canvas interprets that as 11:59:00pm.

     

    This should be changed, so the default seconds for due dates would be 59, so if a due date of 11:59pm is entered, Canvas should interpret that as 11:59:59pm.
