    We are a K-12 school. One of the biggest negative feedback items we receive on Canvas has to do with assignments being due at midnight (11:59). Parents are concerned that we effectively asking them to stay up until midnight to turn in their homework. This is especially important for our middle school and junior high students.

     

    We would like to be able to set assignment due time to default to a time that can be set in our school's account settings.

     

    Yes, it is true that teachers can change the time, but we are relying on them doing the extra steps all the time to match our school's assignment policy - and it requires a lot of clicks to make this simple change.

     

    This idea was considered when developing our product plan for Q1 2019 and is not expected to influence development within Canvas at this time.
