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

Moodle’s Dates Report lists all course items with date settings on a single page, where you can adjust start dates, due dates and activity completion dates. This can be very helpful if you are reusing material from a previous semester in a new course.

To open the Dates Report:

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

The Dates Report lists all of course items with date settings:

  • 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.
