Adjust all assignment and quiz dates on a single page

Adjust all assignment and quiz dates on a single page

(2)
The Problem:

Managing dates one item at a time is tedious when you are planning an entire semester. This is true for new classes, but also for existing classes since the ability to globally adjust imported dates never works for the way my institution designs new semesters.

 

I would like a spreadsheet format that shows all date related events on one page. I could then set up all events and synchronize them where necessary. This could be an online form, or the ability to download a csv template and reupload the dates.

 

I have attached a simplified snapshot of this kind of spreadsheet.

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

Wow! And none of these have been addressed!? I know for one, I just redid all the dates again. The most time-consuming aspect of adding a new section! Unbelievable they can’t get that done! SMH!

The Edit Assignment Dates page supports enhancements to select multiple assignments, batch edit dates, and improve date validation. These changes provide faster management of assignment dates in a course. For more information, please read through the Canvas Release Notes (2020-07-18)

Where is the "Edit Assignment Dates page"? I don't see it in my menu.

careysmith@vcccd.edu, you will need to log into your beta instance to test it; please refer to the linked July 18, 2020 release notes for screenshots and details.

It has been available in your production instance of Canvas for a while already. You only need to go into your beta instance of Canvas if (1) your administrator hasn't already enabled it or (2) you want to see the latest changes that are coming out on July 18.

The picture in the release notes does explain it. You go to the assignments page and click on the options (vertical dots) at the top.

james@richland.edu‌, I interpreted Carey's question as stemming from my update heralding the enhancement that is currently in beta.

I found this feature in a drop-down menu. From the 1st message, I didn't know where to look for it.
