Hi there, I was just wondering if it was possible to have an assignment or quiz automatically get published when it reaches the "Available From" date and time?
No, this functionality is not built into Canvas.
There is a feature request for this though: Allow automatic publishing on a particular date , and I provided a possible work around there.
It opens up on October 7, but you can go lend your support for it now. You just can't vote until Oct 7.
Chad, unfortunately no, it's not possible for an assignment or quiz to automatically get published when it reaches the "Available From" date/time. Here's a feature idea similar to what you are wanting - Allow automatic publishing on a particular date - and my recommendation is to comment on this feature idea and follow it so you'll be notified of updates (like when it becomes open for voting).
Great, thank you so much for the info and the extremely quick response!
