Time Zone and Syllabus Due Dates

Computers in non Mountain time zone: incorrect due dates on Canvas syllabus
January 18, 2018

We have found a scenario where due dates are displayed incorrectly on the built-in syllabus in a Canvas course.

If a person’s computer is not set to the US mountain time zone, assignment due dates displayed on the built-in syllabus tool on the left course menu do not display correctly on that person's computer. (student/instructor)

Due dates ARE displayed correctly on:

  • The assignment itself.
  • A student’s To Do list.
  • Canvas calendars.
  • email notifications.

Canvas is testing a fix for this issue. Canvas has moved the original deployment date for this fix from January 27 to February 3, 2018.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
