Wishful thinking - Adding dates to auto-populate in a section

Jump to solution
Community Explorer

Hi friends.

I'm currently editing a course template* and was wondering if there was a way for designers to enter a date like Week 1, Wednesday so it would auto-populate in subsequent sections when it its published. Wishful thinking. I suppose. There must be a better way to avoid the manual process of changing dates every term, whether we put them in or our faculty must do it.


*Side note: Do we have an official name for them now? I know Master is a problematic term in our racially charged world. Blueprint?

Thanks for your response,

It sounds like you are wondering about Blueprint courses. As a Blueprint Admin you can create a Blueprint Course and have information synced to the Associated Courses. One thing you can manage through those Blueprint Courses is Due Dates. Due Dates can sync from the Blueprint 'Master' or 'Parent' Course to Associated Courses, and you can set those Due Dates to be locked. https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Instructor-Guide/How-do-I-lock-course-objects-in-a-blueprint-cour...
