Automatic Late Assignment

I am a new teacher at a middle school and the first two weeks of class I have been lenient with LATE assignments and giving full credit. However, I have informed my students starting next week they will get 25% off their assignment if it's late. My issue is when I go to change the settings to have Canvas automatically start taking 25% off LATE assignments, it messes up grades for assignments I've already graded. Is there a way to make it so it won't change past assignments but moving forward will automatically mark 25% off LATE assignments?

Hi @emnuttall 

Because you have already graded some submissions, and do not want those submissions factored into your new grade posting policy, you will need to apply your grade posting policy to each new assignment individually. See How do I select a grade posting policy for an assignment in the gradebook?

I hope this is helpful,
