How do I create varied due date Assignments?
You can assign different availability dates and due dates for each section of your course. This feature is designed to help you when you have sections of a course that meet on different days of the week or in different formats (online vs face-to-face).
Click the title of the Assignment you would like to edit.
Edit Due Dates
Scroll down to the Due Dates section in the Assignment settings.
Set a due date by changing the following options:
- For: Change the course section that the due date applies to.
- Due Date: Set the date and time that the Assignment is due.
- Available From: Set the date and time when the Assignment will become available.
- Until: Set the date and time when the Assignment will no longer be available.
Note: Beneath the Due Date and Availability date fields, Canvas will display the time zone date and time according to context. If you manage courses in a time zone other than your local time zone and create or edit a due date for an assignment, the course and local times are displayed for reference.
Add Due Date
To add a Due Date for another section of your course, click the Due Date button.
Note: You can only create as many Due Dates as there are Sections in the course. For example, if you have three sections in the course, you will be able to add three Due Dates. After that, the Due Date button will disappear.
Edit Additional Due Date
Set the new Due Date by changing the For, Due Date, Available From, and Until fields.
Note: You don't have to add due dates for each individual section. You can set dates for a specific section and then choose Everyone Else for the remainder of your students.
Due Date Warning
If you assign a due date for one section without assigning due dates to remaining sections, you will see a warning message reminding you to add due dates to all sections. You can click the No Due Date button  if you don't want to add due dates to the other sections, or click the Go Back button  to go back and add due dates.
Remove Due Dates
You can also delete additional due dates by clicking the X next to appropriate due date.
Users will receive a notification when they submit an invalid string of due dates for a Quiz, Assignment, or Graded Discussion. Such invalid entries include not unlocking the assignment before it is due, or not placing the due date inside the range of availability dates.
