Jump to solution

I can't figure out how to assign multiple due dates (1st for post, 2nd for responses) in the 8/18/21 release of Canvas Discussions Redesign. Will there be directions or a breakdown on how to do this?

@johnmartin  The feature released in the 8/21 release is that multiple dates display on a discussion that has differentiated due dates for different users and sections. The checkpoints feature is currently slated for the third release of the project. Please read through   Discussions Redesign Early Access  for details.

I'd encourage you to follow these links and participate in the discussion under Jody's information.

Hope this will help in some way.
