How do I schedule a reminder for an assignment in the Student app on my iOS device?
On iOS devices, you can schedule notifications for upcoming assignments. You can schedule reminders 5 minutes, 1 hour, 1 day, or 3 days before the due date. When the reminder time arrives, the app will reopen the assignment to the details page.
Reminders cannot be set for past assignments or assignments that do not have a due date.
This lesson shows how to open an assignment through a course, but you can also schedule reminders by opening assignments in the To Do list.
The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

Tap the time period when you'd like to receive the notification as related to the due date. You can choose to be reminded 5 minutes, 1 hour, 1 day, or 3 days before the due date.
