The Manage Dates tool enables you to view, edit and offset the date availability, and set the Calendar status of all Content topics and modules, Discussion topics and forums, Dropbox folders, Grades categories and items, News items, and quizzes in your course from one central location.
These course objects display in a grid that you can sort by any of the column headings. You can also filter the grid by specific tool and use advanced filter options to work with smaller sets of objects. If you filter your course objects, any bulk changes you make apply only to the filtered results. This enables you to update multiple availability dates based on specific criteria.
In addition to managing dates, you can open each course object in a new window by clicking on its name. This launches the object's edit page where you can edit additional properties for that object without leaving the Manage Dates tool.
