Editing Deadline for File Request

Editing Deadline for File Request

Explorer | Level 4

I would like to request some help with creating customized time Deadlines for File Requests.

I teach 4 different classes and would like to set each File Requests exactly at a point in time say 6:50pm instead of the option offered by default which is always on the hour (i.e.: ..., 6:00 pm, 7:00 pm,... ).

 

Is there such an option? It would really help, since I have my students upload their work before the class starts or at a specific time for a quiz or exam that has to be set not on the hour.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @planck_star; thanks for joining our Community!

 

As you noticed there isn't an option to customize the file requests deadline to be set to an exact point in time apart from the hourly options you saw. 

 

You can suggest this idea in the relevant section of our Community for other users to share their thoughts on this and upvote it to show their interest as well.
