If you need to give one or more students more time to finish a mobile assignment, you can grant them a due-date extension. Similarly, you can open an assignment early for some students by setting an available-from offset.

Follow the instructions below to edit these settings for an individual mobile assignment. If you need to make changes to multiple assignments at once, it may be easier to follow the instructions in the help article Due Date Extensions and Available From Offsets.

Set a due date extension or available from offset

Go to the Assignment Editor for the assignment

You can click on the assignment on your main course page to open the assignment editor.


Click the "Update" button



Click the "Extended Due Dates" button



Click "Add Individual Offsets Or Extensions"

Make sure the assignment has an available from date and/or due date set.

Select one or more students from the list on the left

To select more than one student, hold the Shift or Control (Command on Mac) key while clicking on students' names.

Choose the new available from date and/or due date

Click "Save"

The new available from date or due date will now apply to the student(s) you chose.
