      Description

      When a teacher decides to restrict access of an activity (any), 2 choices are available:
      1. Show activity grey-out, with restricted information
      2. Hide activity entirely

      With option number 1, when restricting "from" and "until" a certain date, the activity will disappear when the "until" date as been reached. Is it not suppose to simply grey it out ? By disappearing, the students cannot even access the activity because it's not there anymore. Is this intentional ?

      Thx

        Hi, Melvin.

        There is a third setting to consider as well. Even without restricted access being turned on, teachers can set an "Available from" date. This has different behaviour. Here is the description from the help icon for restricted access...

        Allow access from

        Access from/to dates determine when students can access the activity via a link on the course page.

        The difference between access from/to dates and availability settings for the activity is that outside the set dates the latter allows students to view the activity description, whereas access from/to dates prevent access completely.

        So, I believe you are seeing the expected behaviour.
