Assign zero in Grades for missed work?

I want students' missed work (i.e., past assignments students did not complete) to be scored as zero. This is an issue because I drop two quizzes and one exam, and Canvas does not "drop" missed work unless it is scored as a zero. I go back into the Grades area periodically and manually enter zeros to replace the dashes, but I want to automate this task so I don't have to worry about forgetting to do it!


In my own search of the Canvas Guides, I have not found a way to do this automatically. I have learned that the option to "treat ungraded items as zero" does not solve my problem. Any ideas? Is it something obvious that I'm just missing? Thanks!
