Posting grades manually

Community Member

I'm having trouble understanding the manual posting option in gradebook. I've selected manual posting and I can see the grades pop up in the gradebook while I grade. But I don't see any indication that the grades are unavailable to the students. I thought the idea was that the grades only become visible for an assignment when I manually post them. That manual positing is supposed to be somewhere in the drop down menu activitated by clicking on the "three dots" at the top the assignment column. But I don't see any such option in the drop down menu. What am I missing?
