Copying Individual Assignments Without Due Date

Is there a way to delete the due date when copying an assignment? I know I can do this when copying a course, however, I have had issues where I would copy an individual assignment, but because the due date was earlier either A) all of my students would receive automatic zeros for their assignments being "late" even if I change the due date after copying, or B) The previous due date would fall in a "previous semester" that is closed and I wouldn't be able to make any changes at all.

Hi @MalikNelson ,

I would use the Course Import tool to import INTO the destination course rather than copying FROM the original course. The Course Import tool allows you to remove due dates. You would choose "Select specific content" and then select the assignment(s) from the menu.

How do I copy content from another Canvas course using the Course Import tool?

Be sure to select "Adjust events and due dates" and then "Remove dates."

How do I adjust events and due dates in a course import?
