Cannot assign weight to assignments

Jump to solution

New to the Admin Role--We just moved to the Winter Term and one of our teachers went to setup her weighted assignments but received an error message "Assignments group weights can't be edited because there are assignments in one of the groups whose due dates are closed".

Do you have to setup a group for each term at the beginning of the year? Is there a way she can set this up for the winter Term?

Thanks!

Hi! If the instructor is seeing that error, they may have copied content with past dates still attached rather than clearing them. Have her view all assignments on a single page and double-check the availability dates. How do I bulk update due dates and availability dates as an instructor? 

I hope that is helpful! Please let the Community know what you learn. 🙂

On the "Edit Assignment Dates" page I am unable to edit the assignment dates. 

I am getting the message  "! (exclamation mark in red) In closed grading period" within a black box. 

Another option?

If the grading period is closed, I'd reach out to your local Canvas Admin or support contact. They'll be able to get those dates adjusted for you and opened back up! How do I get help with Canvas as an instructor?

Yes, I called the Canvas help line, and they fixed it for me! So worth the phone call.
