Date Restricting Items

by SCCC OIT

Most items in Blackboard can be date-restricted.  The date restriction makes an item unavailable except during a specified range of dates and times. In order to date-restrict an item, first locate it in your course site and open the item for editing. Then do the following.

  1. Make certain that the item is marked Available.  For a normal Blackboard item, answer Yes to Permit Users to View this Content. 
  2. Scroll down the page until you see Select Date and Time Restrictions
  3. (Optional) To make an item available after a certain date and time:
    1. Click the check box next to Display After.
    2. Click the corresponding Calendar icon, and select from the pop-up calendar the date after which your item should display.
    3. Click the corresponding Clock icon, and select from the drop-down list the time of day after which your item should display.
  4. (Optional) To make an item available until a certain date and time:
    1. Click the check box  next to Display Until.
    2. Click the corresponding Calendar icon, and select from the pop-up calendar the date after which your item should no longer be available.
    3. Click the corresponding Clock icon, and select from the drop-down list the time of day after which your item should no longer be available.
  5. Make any other desired changes to your item, and click Submit.
