Edit Tasks PH-_Assignment_Archive-_Edit__Overview-_Edit_tasks.png This is actually only available for the assignment creator, a teacher account, and it takes them back into the assignment build view to modify, add, or delete content. The teacher does have to select the impact either “all students” or “select students”. If they choose all students, the system will automatically apply the changes to all and the assignment will save with the same name. If the teacher chooses “select students”, s/he has to rename the edited version and choose the select student from the list as the last step.
