Assignment - how to allow late submission?

Jump to solution

I've already assigned a due date for an assignment and that date has passed. A student has asked permission to submit late. How do I allow that without changing the due date for everyone?

Hi  @rozhussin 

Canvas recently introduced a feature called differentiated assignments, which allows you to set different due/availability dates for specific students or groups within the same assignment. In this case you could edit the assignment and add a new date just for the student concerned.

Take a look at the page in the help guides that explains how to create an assignment. As your assignment already exists, you can skip the first few steps in the guide, just scroll down to the part about adding additional dates: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-2642
