Assignment due dates different from when posted (assigned)? Can we have two dates when assigning something.

Can an assignment have a different due date, but be posted to an earlier date. This would keep some grades together, like quizzes with retakes, or rough drafts with final projects.

Can an assignment have a different due date

Different than what? As in, changing the due date of one assignment so a student can submit it late or early?

More like I have a date that it is due, but I can set the late policies on grading for different things. I also have grades that I want to show up in my PowerTeacherPro gradebook together, but different due dates move them around each time I sync grades. I'd like to have a report date (when to show it in the gradebook), and a due date. It would also be nice to be able to set different late policy stuff for different type of assignments.

hope that helps

There are a lot of different ideas in your post, I'll try to work through them. Hopefully I've understood them correctly.

If you don't want students to be able to see their assignment grades until a certain day, you can manually mute the assignment until you are ready for the students to see their grades:

How do I mute or unmute an assignment in the Gradebook? 

If you're using the new Gradebook, you can have Gradebook automatically deduct points for late work:

How do I apply a Late Submission policy in the New Gradebook?
