Posted November 5th, 2020 at 7:46 pm.

The Moodle Dates Report enables you to adjust availability dates, due dates or activity completion dates that have been set for resources and activities in a course on a single page. This can be very helpful if you are reusing activities and resources from a previous semester in a new course.

To access the Dates Report:

  1. Click (Actions menu) and choose More … to open the Course administration
  2. Click the Reports
  3. Click Dates.

The Dates report lists all of course items that have date settings of some kind enabled.

  • It is divided into sections, with a “Course” section containing the course start and end dates, followed by each section in your course.
  • Expand a section to change the dates of all activities and resources in that section.
  • Click Expand all in the upper right to open all sections.
  • You can use Activity type menu in the top left filter for a particular kind of activity, such as Forums.

Adjust dates as needed, clicking Save Changes as you go.
