Is there a way to bulk edit things?

Jump to solution

Basically, I'm wondering if there's a way to bulk edit things like exemptions for a student or the "available until" date for a certain number of assignments. It would go way faster to do these things if there were. Thanks!

Welcome to the Canvas Community!!!

There is nothing native to Canvas that will allow you to make bulk changes to courses, but  @James has created a nifty tool to help with Assignment dates:

I appreciate the fact that Canvas has created a bulk edit option for dates by assignment. We also REALLY NEED a way to conduct bulk edits per student. Think about it this way: If I have one or more (but not the entirety) students for whom I need to adjust due dates or deadlines, I now have to go into each assignment to make the edits. This is a tedious time suck. It would be great to have a way to select one or more students (rather than assignments), and then edit dates. It's a matter of adding an order of operations at the student, rather than assignment, level. I've made this request elsewhere, but perhaps you can address it as part of this related thread? Thanks!
