Functionality Changes

Content Availability: 

This issue applies to you if you use the start date or draft option to restrict when students see Content modules.

In previous versions, if you added a start date to a Content module or topic students did not see the Content until the date and time you assigned.  This has changed in version 10.1.

Now, if a start date is set, students will see the module or topic listed on their content page.  They will not be able to access or open that piece of content until the desired date.  
In order to completely hide a module or topic from student view, it must be set to "Draft" status.  This will prevent students from seeing the item on their content page or in the calendar.  
Additionally, draft/published status works completely independently from the start date.  You must manually change draft status to published status. (In other words, if you set an item to draft and set a start date, the start date will not automatically change the status from draft to published.)  
One thing that has not changed is the ability to control start dates and draft vs. published status at the module level.  For example, if there is a module with several items within the module.  If you change the module to "Draft" the students will not be able to see the module or anything within that module.  You do not have to set each topic status individually.
