Date setting in multiple courses

Yes, this is possible but you will need an administrator's assistance.  You can create a .csv file that contains the courses you want to change and the desired start and end dates, and the admin can upload that using the SIS Import tool in the admin menu. 

This page has details about how to construct the columns of the .csv: https://canvas.instructure.com/doc/api/file.sis_csv.html. Scroll down a little bit to the "courses.csv" section.

Hi, Glenn. What I´ve been looking for is to set up all the activities, colaborrative forums and assesments. I´m sending a screen shot as an example of how many activities I have to set up in one course. In every course, I have to set up about 20 dates. I have 110 courses. And we do them manually. The administrator is assisting me. I´m reading all the documentation. So, do you think it is possible?

 

Thanks in advance.

If all 110 courses need the same content, set one of them as a Blueprint course.  Then, in the courses.csv file you can specify the ID of your blueprint course to be used by the 110 courses.  That will copy the activities.  However, the due dates of each activity in each course will still need to be checked manually.
