Editing, extending or re-opening an existing Task

If you want to change the due date of a task or realise you've made a mistake setting up a task for your students, you can change most aspects of your task without deleting it and making a new one. 

You can also re-open a task once the task has closed if you would like your students to have another attempt. 

Extending a Task

Navigate to the Tasks tab from your dashboard, then click into the relevant task.
