Assignments with new dates


I love Schoology and have been using it for years.  There is 1 thing that causes me frustration though.  Copying courses.  I have assignments that are turned in almost daily.  When I copy the course, all of the assignments (almost 100 of them) have the date of the original course.  I have to manually go in and edit every date to make it current.  It would be nice if there was a question on the copy resources that would let you shift the dates.  This would not be perfect, but if I calculated that my first assignment in the Fall was August 15 and I could shift that to January 9th and all other assignments shifted by the same number of days, then I could use the assignment calendar to make the few minor adjustments that would be needed (different days off/holidays, etc.).  Does anyone have a solution or something I am missing?

    Hi Scott,

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your question!

    Currently, you can shift due dates for all assignments in a course via the Bulk Edit feature. However, this feature will not apply to past due dates. Additionally, you can change the due dates of assignments when they are copied from Resources to a course (Select the checkbox next to the item in Resources > click Edit > Choose the course > Click Advanced Options) however, this must be done for each individual item.

    I will be moving your post to the Feature Ideas forum so that others can find and upvote your idea.

    Thank you again for posting your feedback!
