      Description

      This is related to a scenario we've come across where students have to undertake a practice quiz prior to taking the real quiz. The real quiz has a restriction and can't be taken until the practice quiz has been marked complete. The real quiz displays this restriction on the course page, so students know they need to take the practice quiz first. The problem is that the calendar doesn't show the open/close dates for the real quiz, so students can't know when the real quiz is due until they complete the practice one (by which time the real one could well be closed).

      Would it be possible to include an additional checkbox in the restrictions section of the activity settings to allow calendar events to still show despite any restrictions?

      I understand that there might be a use case that involves keeping the due dates of restricted activities hidden, so I am hesitant to submit this as a bug. That said, please let me know if this would be more suited to a bug report.
