Hi, Kona and Quan! If your Canvas admin has the Turnitin LTI app set up like the example in Canvas and Turnitin​, the dates will sync from Canvas to Turnitin by using the custom field in the LTI tool to set up date syncing.

If the date syncing is not set up, then you must manually set dates in both Canvas and Turnitin. Keep in mind, though, that if you set an "available until" date in Canvas that students will not be able to access Turnitin for the assignment after that date, which will cut them off from seeing originality reports and grading in Turnitin.

If the date syncing is not set up, you may wish to contact your local Canvas admin and ask her to read Canvas and Turnitin​.

I hope that helps!

qnguyen@ohlone.edu​, my recommendation is to check out this document - Canvas and Turnitin​ - it's pretty much "the" guide for Canvas and Turnitin. In addition, I'm going to tag dhulsey@nmjc.edu​ on this to see if he can assist.

Is this custom code good for any school? Is it generic?

custom_duedate=$Canvas.assignment.dueAt.iso8601

assignmentid=$Canvas.assignment.id

custom_submission_title=$Canvas.assignment.title

custom_maxpoints=$Canvas.assignment.pointsPossible

custom_startdate=$Canvas.assignment.unlockAt.iso8601

Yes, those codes work for all schools to enable syncing between Canvas and Turnitin For dates, assignment titles, and points.
