This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas
When my teachers manually enter a grade into the gradebook, whether a number value or "EX" for excused, it is labeled as missing. Can we change it so that if there is an entry in the gradebook then this label does not come up? This seems to be logical to me. I am unsure of why the label of missing would make sense if there is an entry in the gradebook. This also has an effect on the analytics of the course and the teacher's ability to measure student progress. Thank you!!

The work on late and missing policies in September and December made it possible to manually remove a missing label from an assignment. You can read more about these updates in the following releases
