It's been mentioned in the past, and it's definitely a need -- is there a way for assignments to be reoccurring like journal entries?
It's been brought up a few times (example: Recurring Assignments ) with a lot of community support. as that was posted over a year ago, and there's been no further word that I'm aware of from Instructure, you could post it again, or just add to that particular thread.
You can currently do recurring events, but not with a turn-in point.
What is the update ( timeline) on creating a "recurring assignment" option?
There is no public timeline on this. It's possible one of the Instructure representatives here could research it and see if there's any action on this, or you can reach out to your school's CSM and/or submit the idea again.
