The default setting in LaunchPad is to hide past-due assignments. This means that only future assignments are visible to you and your students. One way to reveal homework assignments (and the units in which the assignments are located), is to click on the Show past due link.


"Show past due" link next to Assignments header in the LaunchPad table of contents


If you'd like all past-due assignments to show automatically without having to click on the Show past due link, take the following steps:

Go to the "Instructor Console"

Click Instructor Console in the left-hand menu of your LaunchPad course home page.


Click "General, Navigation, and LaunchPad Settings"


Collapse past due items by default

First, click on Launch Pad in the left-hand menu.

You’ll see an option to Collapse past-due items by default. When this box is checked, past-due items will be automatically hidden.

If you uncheck the box and click Save, all assignments from the course will be automatically shown to students, regardless of whether the due date has passed.
