      Create an assignment with a due date more than the reminder window (default 24 hours) in the future.

      • Students that can still submit to the assignment will get a reminder email when the due date is 24 hours away.
      • Students that have disabled email notifications in Home > Preferences > Notifications will not receive a reminder.

      Here are some example scenarios and whether or not the student should receive an email:

      Scenario Email?
      Submitted the assignment No
      Has not started the assignment Yes
      Submission saved as draft Yes
      Not started but disabled email in preferences No
      Site unpublished when the reminder should go out No
      Site softly deleted when the reminder should go out No

      The reminder window can be configured to other times by setting a new number in the sakai property: assignment.reminder.hours

      Description

      This is a custom feature implemented from the University of Dayton that sends a reminder email to students 24 hours from the due date of an assignment reminding them to submit. 

       

      This is something that could be extremely helpful for students especially forgetful ones and help keep students on track with their courses.
