Do you know why the discussion dates change when you copy a Master course over to a semester course? They all go back to zero.
Joshm, my master do you mean “Blueprint” type master or just the course that you’ve created that is the one you copy into other courses?
You are correct in that it is the primary that is being copied into other courses.
Did you have any luck figuring out this issue? Apparently I'm not getting any assistance from Canvas.
Hello there, CHARLES MADISON...
I have been reviewing older questions here in the Canvas Community, and I stumbled upon your question. I thought that I would check in with you because I noticed there hasn't been any new activity in this topic since February 25, 2019. In reviewing this conversation, it sounds like your discussion dates are disappearing when you copy from a "master" course into your own course. The first thing I thought of when I read through this is...does your "master" course have due dates assigned to those discussion topics? If not, then this might explain why you have blanks in the due dates after you import from the "master" into your own course...as it would be copying those "non dates" into your own course.
At our school, we also have "master" courses, but we don't usually set due dates for graded discussions or assignments in those courses. That's up to the instructor to set in his/her course. Due dates will vary from instructor to instructor...even if is two sections of the same course. So, what may work for one instructor might not work for another instructor...thus, we don't set dates in "master" courses.
