Set Assignment Submissions Default Setting to "Off"

Seguir

The majority of my assignments do not require student submissions. Yet the default setting for Submissions is "ON." Would it be better for the default to be "Off"? If not, is it possible in my page settings to create that default. 

The main reason is that if I forget to turn that setting off, Schoology sends reminders to my student that a submission is due, when in fact, there is no submission due.

    I think that this would be extremely helpful. I have done the same thing several times, and it causes unnecessary stress on the kids.

    Agree! Please please please have submissions enabled be a button you must turn on instead of turn off.

    I also think this should be set to off as a default.  Or give us the option to change our defaults settings for new materials we post to our courses.

    I agree, and I'm someone who usually needs it ON!

    It would be even better if teachers could set PREFERENCES which apply to all their pages.  Then I could set my preference to on, and others could set to off, and everyone would be served. 

    The least tech-savvy teachers tend not to have online submissions, and are also the least likely to know they should unclick the submissions box.  Students are inundated by false missing alerts; parents freak out; and eventually everyone learns to IGNORE alerts from Schoology.  :(

    Agreed!  I'd think that changing that button so that the default is off would be an easy fix.  Giving teachers the ability to  set own preferences for their own courses would be even better as we have quite a variety of levels of use.  If they could turn things on as they get comfortable, it would simplify things.

    We get so many parent complaints about students submitting work, but still receiving an overdue email every time. While many of our teachers (but not all) do use the assignment submission -- not every assignment needs a submission.

    This is desperately needed!  I agree that the option for teachers to set their own preference is the best.

    What is the status of this request? I know it has caused major headaches for many and extra work for teachers. Having a preference option to set the default is really needed.

    Is there a timeline for when you are going to fix this??  Are there even moderators on this forum that are seeing this.  This is a HUGE ISSUE.

    Mr. Black,

    Thank you.  I probably should practice proper forum etiquette myself if I expect the same from our own users.  Apologies.
