Automatic "Missing" designation for assignments from external tool?

Jump to solution


I want to know if it is possible to get Canvas to automatically mark an assignment as "missing" after the due date and/or last available date for the assignment has passed. This seems to happen for assignments where, for example, the student has to upload a file. If they haven't done so by the due date, it gets flagged as missing. But when I give assignments based on an external LTI, nothing happens after the due date. Is there something I can change?

I am having this problem too. The "solution" here is not a solution to the problem. This is a major problem for my students; they do not understand that something is missing unless it says "MISSING" in the gradebook and assigns a default zero. With 160 students I cannot do this manually for all.
