Hi all, new to the group. We are slowly moving from Moodle to Canvas and I have a question about formal online exams.

In Moodle, I often found myself overiding the exam start time for students located in other countries which was fairly simple and I was wondering if there was a way of doing this in Canvas…

On a similar line, some students were entitled to more time to take the exam and I was wondering if there was a way of doing this too… Any help appreciated
