Bulk Update Selected/All Assignments

    I would like to be able to assign the same Dates for all or selected assignments without changing each one individually.


    Right now, we can change dates of assignments with the editing feature in assignments. If you just want to change a few assignments, that's great; however, my district pushed content with one availability date and now I need to change it. The problem is there are at least 60 assignments in 2 different courses that need a new date assigned. It would be much easier if I could select all the assignments and assign one date and save. Then the system could bulk update each one.


    Can you change the Bulk Update feature to allow us to select individual assignments or all assignments and assign 1 date?
