How do I configure group-specific activity settings?

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 editor that you use when creating and editing folders and activities includes a Group dropdown in the bottom, left corner of the window. 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 Calendar 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 Group Set.
  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. Select a folder or activity to see it's Properties and use the side menus to Edit, Preview, orDelete folders and activities.
  4. Toggle visibility to students using the eye (visibility) icon.
  5. Modify due dates where enabled by clicking on them.

    Group drop down menu seems to actually be in the "scores" tab.
