- An event on the calendar has a default time of 12am on the date of the event.
- An assignment has a default time of 11:59pm on the date the assignment is due.
This causes an inconsistent user experience when viewing Coming Up in the side bar.
If an assignment is due on May 8th it will show as Coming Up in the side bar until 11:59pm on May 8th.
If an event occurs on May 8th it will not show as Coming Up in the side bar after 12:00 am on May 8th.
Therefore, if a student logs in to Canvas the morning of May 8th, Coming Up in the side bar will list the Assignment due today but the Event occurring today will not be displayed.
