How do I configure group-specific activity settings?

  • Updated:

Vary settings (due dates, grade weights, etc) between groups.

Once your groups are created, you can configure activity settings to meet each group's specific needs and to establish group-driven staggered schedules.

Specify groups in the activity editor

The activity editors for folders and activities can be easily filtered by Group. By default, it is set to All groups; if you want to create group-specific settings, select the group from that dropdown, and configure your settings.

Review group-specific settings

When you create a due date or grade visibility date using the All groups option, these dates appear on the Scheduling tab of the Editor tool; however, group-specific settings can only be reviewed using the activity editor and the Group Settings tab of the Editor tool.

With the Group Settings tab, you can:

  1. Filter the displayed folders and activities by Grouping or Folder.
  2. Filter the displayed group set with View By to show:
    • Property, which allows you to organize by Visibility or Due Date in the second dropdown.
    • Activity, which allows you to organize using folders in your Syllabus in the second dropdown.  
    • Group, which allows you to organize by groups within the chosen group set in the second dropdown.  
  3. Use the Property dropdown to choose to see
    • Visibility settings; when selected, you can toggle them in the table.
    • Due dates; when selected, you can modify them in the table.
  4. Select a folder or activity to see it's Properties and use the side menus to Edit, Preview, or Delete folders and activities.
