We're doing an update as to outstanding requests for the New Gradebook. I've created a ticket for our engineering team to review. If any progress is made it will be included in an upcoming version of the release notes.
If I may make a polite suggestion, erinhallmark, it is that there should be warning screens galore about copying over a Late/Missing Policy IF the user is not using "adjust due dates" when doing a course copy. (Or that the programming "knows" to not count existing assignments until the due dates are changed--especially if there is a "missing" policy in place--or else the gradebook will become a sea of red columns! I hope that makes sense! )
Is there an update to this "Copying Late Policies" topic?
While the "Import Course Content" tool works very well to copy a previous course into a new course (i.e. a new semester or year), 1 item I've noticed that doesn't get copied is "Late Policies", which seems odd. Every semester, I have to remember to go into every course and change from the default late policy, even though I already set this up in the course from which I'm copying.
@erinhmcmillan, any update on this "Copying Late Policies" issue? It's been ~2 years since the original post, and the issue persists of Late Policies not copying when "Import Existing Content" from a previous course.
