Two due dates for one assignment

Community Member

Like many American instructors, I have students participate in a Canvas discussion by having them create an initial post early in the week, and then have them reply to their fellow students by the end of the week.

However, I only see one place for a due date. If I use the end-of-the-week date, then students don't get notified to make their initial post. If I use the initial post date, there is no reminder to do their replies, just an incorrect notice that they are past due.

This is such a common assignment that I am sure that Canvas has a method for it, but I cannot find it after extensive research. Any help?
