KB0186 – Changing a Task Due Date

This tutorial will show you how to change the due date set for a task on edumate.

This is very important to monitor, as whatever due date is set for a task on edumate will determine what date it occurs on student’s and parent’s calendars!

If the date of a task changes, or if you need to guess due to it being a long way off, you will need to revise the due date as you learn when the exact dates is so that it appears correctly on the portal for the students and parents.
