(Instructor) How does “Sign Up By Start Date” and “Sign Up By End Date” work when I am setting up my students opportunities?

Sarah Smith -

The “Sign Up By End Date” lets you set the minimum number of days in advance a student can sign up for an opportunity. Entering the number “7” would mean that students can sign up for an opportunity no less than 7 days before it is scheduled. Entering a negative number, like “-20”, means that students have to sign up for this opportunity no later than the 20th of the previous month. Entering a specific date, such as “12/15/2017”, means that students must sign up for this opportunity by that specific date.
 
 The “Sign Up By Start Date” sets when students first see an opportunity listed under “Available Opportunities” and can sign up for it. In a similar way to the “Sign Up By End Date”, entering a number like “30” here would mean that students can only begin signing up for this opportunity 30 days before it’s scheduled. A negative number, like “-2”, would mean that students can only start signing up for this opportunity on the 2nd of the previous month. And entering a date means that students can begin signing up for this opportunity on or after the specified date you entered.
 
With these two options, you can now begin setting up specific time frames where students can sign up for opportunities. For example, entering 60 in the “Sign Up By Start Date” and 7 in the “Sign Up By End Date” would mean that students can begin signing up for this opportunity 60 days before it’s scheduled, and cannot sign up for it less than 7 days before it’s scheduled.
 
The “Sign Up By Start Date” is also an optional feature. You can leave the box blank rather than entering a number or a date. This will cause the word “Any” to appear in the “Sign Up By Start Date” field, and students can view and sign up for this opportunity at any point before the “Sign Up By End Date” is reached.
