Scheduling a vacation will automatically shift assignments in the course and keep your free-form assignments untouched. To reschedule a free-form assignment, see reschedule an assignment. If you have questions about this, feel free to contact us.
Create a Vacation
Navigate to the Calendar via the link in the top bar.
Click on the Manage Vacations link in the calendar actions. If you're on a smaller screen (e.g. tablets, phones), you'll need to open the calendar action menu () to see the option.
Click the New Vacation button.
Optional: Select the students you'd like to create a vacation for in the Students dropdown. If left empty, it will create a vacation for every student.
Optional: Add a Vacation Name.
Select the day (or range of days) that the vacation will take place. To select a single day, just click the new day. To select a range of days, click the first day of the range followed by the last day of the range. In this example, we're creating a vacation on the week of Thanksgiving.
Adding a vacation will shift any (non-free-form) assignments scheduled during or after the vacation to the next open course day. Additionally, scheduling a vacation will not affect an assignment's duration, so an assignment's due date could end up on a vacation day.
Click Add Vacation to create the vacation and shift assignments.
Edit a Vacation
Navigate to your vacations (see above for instructions), and click on the vacation you want to edit.
Edit the vacation and click Save.
