Hello there, mviolaWelcome to the Canvas Community. Thank you for posting your question. Do you think that this "Canvancement" (Canvas Enhancement) created by @James called Removing Missing and Late Labels would meet your needs? It's not a part of the core Canvas product, but it is something that James came up with to remove these labels.
Page not found! I want this feature for a professional development course for faculty. I can see it being useful in any course where you want to suggest due dates but don't want to pressure the participants if they miss one.
Here is a quick trick if you happen to find other links like this that are not working... if you know the title of the page/document you are looking for here in the Community, you can use the search box at the top of any page in the Community, and you'll usually be able to find the page with the current URL here in the Canvas Community website.
