Batch Edit Assignment Dates ... BACKWARDS

Community Contributor

I was so excited that Canvas finally created a way to edit all assignment dates on a single page, including the ability to batch edit... and then spring 2021 happened, and I discovered that the batch edit function is useless if you need to move dates backwards instead of forwards. Our university cancelled spring break due to the pandemic, so all deadlines after what would have been spring break have to be moved back one week. Why on earth would this feature be incorporated and not give the ability to move dates in either direction? (A pandemic isn't the only case for needing to move dates backwards!) Is there a work-around? This is still better than nothing, but it's just such a weird miss!
