How to add, edit and remove due-date in assigned learning items
Updated over a week ago

There are three ways to assign a learning item with a due date. Each procedure has its purpose.

Adding a due date to a course via course settings - this procedure is only available for course level only. This auto-generates a due date upon course enrollment (if the 'completion rule is chosen'). From the course settings, the admin can also set a specific due date, which can be applied to assigned and directly enrolled users.

Adding due date upon individual assignment - this is mainly used if there is no intention to use group assignment. Admin can directly assign the learning item to users and add a dude date upon assignment.

Adding a due date via group assignment - this is mostly used by big organizations or those organizations with multiple departments with different requirements. Assigning via group allows them to bulk assign learning items and add a dude date.
