Instructure will release updates to Canvas on Saturday April 17, 2021.

This release highlights the feature we accepted in March where teacher see more clearly whether their courses use term dates or course-specific start and end dates on the Settings page. Teachers can switch from Term to Course dates and set custom end dates for courses they wish to remain open and editable after the standard term end date.
