      User and Group Overrides are extremely useful for Quizzes, Lessons and Assignments!

      It would be really useful to have the option of a Grouping Override too.

      For example:

      If academics would like all five of their Monday groups to submit at a certain time and date then all five Tuesday groups to submit at the same time a day later etc, it would be so much simpler if they could just create a grouping for each day of the week and set up overrides for just those 5 groupings (rather than 20-25 overrides per assignment).

      There is the option to duplicate the assignment four times but when you've got 5 assignments each week for 12 weeks, it gets incredibly unwieldy.  In the gradebook you have to have a category for each week then drop the lowest 4.  You also have to set up restrict access so students do not have to scroll past assignments that do not belong to them).  Clearly, having one assignment per week is far preferable.

      There is also the option of downloading the spreadsheet to create a huge group for each weekday but this is fiddly and would prove tricky with late enrolments.
