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.
