Learn@UW/D2L - Instructors Cannot Save Changes to Start and End Dates of a Course
If, as an instructor, you can change the start and end dates of a course but cannot save the changes, you do not have the permission to change the status of the course.
If you are at UW-Madison, please contact the DoIT Help Desk for assistance with this problem. Otherwise, contact your campus help desk.
For Site Administrators Only
The permission to "Change status", as well as the permission to "Change start and end dates", must be set for the instructor role.
The permission to "Change status" under "Manage Courses" in Security and Permissions is required at the Course Offering level to save any changes in the course offering information. This also includes color and name changes and the "Is Active" status.
