Looking for the latest release notes? Go to release notes for Date Management.

After instructors have copied a course, they can speed up the transition of old dates to new ones relevant for the new course using Date Management. From Date Management, instructors can all adjust availability dates, due dates, and adaptive release dates.

Instructors can choose to update dates automatically or manually from one convenient location. Date Management gives instructors the ability to automatically shift content and tool dates in a course in a highly efficient way. After the system makes this shift, an instructor sees all the dates in one place and can further validate and tweak dates in a single user interface, which greatly streamlines the process.
