Hi @tgodkin Thank You for posting your question. Although the bottom of this Guide, How do I add or edit details in an assignment?, doesn't really seem to indicate what happens, I think the keyword is "users" (plural).

So, if your students have their notifications turned on for "Course Content", I would assume they would get some kind of notification for the assignment change.
I hope this helps a bit, Travis. Sing out if you have any other questions about this...thanks!
