When creating Canvas assignments the due time defaults to 11:59pm on the due date. While this may be OK at a college level, we have received feedback from our parents in our K-12 school that this encourages them to procrastinate and stay up late to finish their assignments. We would like to be able to set the default due time earlier in the evening - for example 10:00pm.


We believe that giving admins the ability to set the default assignment due time will allow them to better meet the needs of their communities. Please vote for this idea.
