      When creating a forum, I would like to see a new item added that states:
      "Show this due date in the Calendar."

      This can go either above or below the "Restrict ratings to items with..." items, but it should not replace these "Restrict ratings..." items. Each will serve its own purpose. Currently, the forum setup webpage is lacking a connection to the calendar.

      With this approach, a forum can remain open even after the due date just in case students want to continue discussion. By also having the "Restrict dates..." field, it becomes obvious when student do not post by the due date. So I believe that all of these fields can work well together. However, maybe this post will stimulate some even better ideas.
