    Description

      We are experiencing a difficult issue where Due dates set on Moodle Core forums are not restoring when backing up and restoring the course.

      Steps to complete:

      1. Create a new course
      2. Add a forum activity
      3. Set a due date for the activity
      4. Review the course calendar to ensure date appears
      5. backup and restore course as a new course with standard settings checked.
      6. Review new course and confirm no due date appears on calendar.
