I'm using the feature to automatically assign a 0% for missing assignments, and to automatically deduct % from late assignments. Overall, it works well.
Situations do arise where I don't want students to receive a late penalty. For instance, they have a valid excuse or technical issues, etc. How do I negate this impact for a certain student on a certain assignment? I don't seem to be able to do it, even in the gradebook by directly inserting the value I would like them to have. It really renders the feature unusable for me, as these things do come up often.
