How do I schedule a future publishing date of an assignment or an announcement I created now.
Hi Karen , and Welcome to the Canvas Community!
Currently there is no way to set a future publishing date in Canvas, and all unpublished content must be manually published as needed. However, there is a very strongly supported feature idea for just what you are asking. You can find it at Let us schedule a Publish Date / Time for Content Pages . Review this, add your own use-case scenarios and support as you deem appropriate.
I would suggest that in your discussions there, that you add assignments and assessments to the request.
How unfortunate and disappointed. One more reason I don't like Canvas as much. With all the additions Canvas supports (electronic grading, quizzes etc. that I don't need), they don't support all the fundamental/basic stuff I used (posting files, syllabus in pdf, etc.). I circumvented the system to post some course information. Now, I have to remember to publish the information (answers to the problems I assigned) after the homework are submitted. Canvas' intention to help become an obstacle. So far Canvas is more trouble than its worth.
