Adjust default time for assignments

Jump to solution

Can you set a default due time for assignments? Obviously you can adjust each individual assignment, but there is a default time of 11:59PM.  This means that somewhere, someone in the Canvas team made a default of midnight.  Is there any way to make a default for each course?

Yep, and I've voted on this feature idea for it - https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/2592-ability-to-set-default-due-time-at-course-level - I would recommend you vote and comment on this as well!

 @mpalmqui , there isn’t a way to do this by course or even at the school level - at least not on the front end. There might be a way to programmatically do this on the back end of Canvas, but that goes beyond my level of expertise.

Thanks Kona,

That’s what I figured, unfortunately. Would this be a useful feature to you?

Why can't Canvas hear us about this?  

It is easily the most common frustration for all K-12 users.  

Just add the **bleep** feature: Allow changing the default time for due dates.  

How hard can that be?
