Hello, Molly, not every user of Canvas would see a Sync Grade button, and presumably this request is specific to schools that sync grades to an external SIS. What would the "Close Assignment" button do?
We've placed this idea into Moderating status as we look forward to your response. Feel free to edit the idea to provide the necessary details that will help Canvas Community members evaluate the idea. Thanks!
From teacher: When I want to close an assignment now so that students can no longer access the assignment, I have to open every assignment and select a close date, then save it. I would like a button I can select that will close that assignment at that time, instead of going into every assignment to close it.
We can edit the idea on your teacher's behalf, Molly, but will still need some details in order to do so. Canvas has Due Dates and Available Until dates in the settings for an assignment. Is the desired behavior of the "Close" button to override the Due Date (which would continue to allow submissions or re-submissions that would be marked "Late" in the Gradebook) or the Available Until date? Are your teachers aware that they can set the Available Until date when they first create the assignment, so they don't have to go back to edit it later?
Thanks for your responses, Stefanie. Yes, a "Close" button to override the Available until date. I am aware that that option is there, and I use it. It would just be more convenient to have button.
