Edit Dates Using Manage Dates

The Manage Dates tool can be used to edit dates for all of the following:

  • Content 
  • Discussions
  • Dropboxes
  • Grades
  • News
  • Quizzes

These course objects display in a grid that you can sort by any of the column headings or filter by a specific tool. If you filter your course objects, any bulk changes you make apply only to the filtered results. This enables you to update multiple availability dates based on specific criteria.
