Can I change the availability date for some of the students after the original availability date has passed?
Hi Robert Freeman Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thanks for posting your question. Are you wanting to extend the time for the assignment for only a certain number of students? If so, I recently posted a reply to a similar question here: Customize the time limit on a quiz for individual student. (In your case, you would be editing an assignment...not a quiz.) Do you think this would help to answer your question? Please let us know...thanks!
I am reluctant to try that due to a problem encountered last week.
I was successful in extending “available until” time for a student before the assignment due date. But when I extended the “available until” time after the assignment due and original available until dates, I evidently created a new assignment and temporarily lost access to the solutions that were submitted on time.
Thanks, Robert Freeman
Hi Robert Freeman...
Hmmm... One thing you could try is modifying those assignment settings in your school's "Test" environment of Canvas. Logging in to your school's "Test" environment won't disturb anything in your "Production" environment course (where you typically log in), so you can do as much testing as you want without worry. How do I access the Canvas test environment as an instructor? Once you have confirmed that adding a separate set of access/due dates for those students works in the "Test" environment, you could then apply those same settings to your "Production" environment course. Just thought I'd present another option for you. Hope this helps.
