Separate assignment due dates for different students

In Canvas assignments and discussions, it is possible to set separate due dates or availability dates for students. For example, you may want to re-open a closed assignment for an individual student.

  1. Edit the assignment or discussion in Canvas
  2. Scroll down to the Assign box (pictured below)
  3. Click + Add
  4. Enter the appropriate student name(s) in the "Assign to" box. Note: Only a few students' names will display by default, but you can type the first letter or two of a student's name to make it appear.
  5. Fill in the appropriate due date and availability dates for that student
  6. Click Save at the bottom of the page

In Assign to setting, select add


Important: You need to click "+ Add" instead of removing "Everyone" and replacing this with an individual student name. If you remove "Everyone" altogether, Canvas assumes you are exempting all other students from the assignment and it will hide their grades in the Gradebook. If you do this in error, you can follow these steps to add "Everyone" back to the assignment.
