Is there a way to easily repeat an assignment or a discussion weekly or regularly?
Joseph, technically you could copy the assignment by importing it back into your course using the course import tool - How do I copy content from another Canvas course? - and selecting specific content. Yet, given the time and energy it takes to do this, it would probably be a lot easier to just create each manually.
What you are suggesting is one of the top requested feature ideas in the Canvas Community - Duplicate, Clone, or Copy anything in Canvas and is also included in this specific request - Copy an Assignment. Both of these ideas have been voted on and gotten a response from Canvas, unfortunately the most recent response is that they won't be working on it at least the next six months. My recommendation is to add your comments on why this would be useful and follow it so you can see if/when an update is made.
No I don't think this is a current feature of Canvas, but it would be a good idea for a future implementation. If you like you could submit it to Canvas Ideas.
Hope this helps,
Yes, please add this feature. I often use repeating assignments that just need a change of due date and title (response #1, response #2, etc.). It would be helpful to be able to quickly duplicate these rather than create them (nearly identically) one at a time.
