Add time option to bulk assignment due date changer

Add time option to bulk assignment due date changer

(11)

The bulk due date changer released 4/18/20 is wonderful, but doesn't include the option to set a due time. Let's vote up the idea to add time to the bulk due date changer!

This one is a no-brainer for me.  I don't understand how the ability to change dates *AND* times in bulk is not in the initial release.  It can't be that hard to add support for times in those boxes and date-pickers.

Couldn't agree more. Our instructors love this new feature but changing the time is a needed improvement.

I LOVE the new bulk assignment date editor but am shocked that it doesn't give you the option to change the times.  Please please please add the option to do a bulk change to assignment times.  Thank you!

Yes, please! Since I can't adjust the time in the bulk assignment date editor, I've sometimes run into issues where I'm adding a opening/closing date for an assignment but I can't because it doesn't jive with the times I already had set in other places of the course (e.g., closing date was already set with a time of 11pm. Tried to add a due date which auto-populated a time of midnight, but the editor wouldn't save because it couldn't be due after the assignment closed).

We have received several faculty complaints about the missing Time option for bulk editing.

Yes!  Much needed!

Holy Moses!  Yes, this should be in the next update.  Sure the editing all of the dates in one place is nice, but it's usefulness is negated a bit by having to go to every assignment to fix the time.

I would definitely like to see a time option added to the bulk assignment date feature; it's the next logical step.

We can currently batch update the date when multiple assignments are due, but we cannot batch update the time of day at which they are due.  For example, I have 20 assignments that are currently due at 5 PM.   I want to change the time that they are due to 7 AM.  There is no batch function for this.  I have to manually change each one of these assignments, which is irritating and time consuming.  If a batch feature exists to update the due date, this feature should also include the option to modify the time of day this batch of assignments is also due.
