How do I set the display of a Resources item to a specific time period?

Updated on

Users can set the availability of a Resources file or folder to display to site participants at a specific date and time and become hidden at a specific date and time.

Go to Resources.

Select the Resources tool from the site Tool Menu.

Select Actions, and then select Edit Details.

From the Actions dropdown menu, select Edit Details.

This displays the Edit Details page for the item.

Specify dates.

Under Availability and Access, check the boxes next to From and Until, set the dates and times using the calendar icon, and then select Update.


  • The "Show this item" or "Show this folder" radio button must also be selected.
  • The "From" and "Until" functionality is optional. You can select to show an item "From" a date/time or show an item "Until" a date/time or both.

View file or folder in Resources.

This displays the file or folder in Resources as hidden, except during the specified time period.


  • Instructors see hidden Resources items grayed out, as in the image.
  • If you set a specific date/time for the availability of a folder, all of the files within the folder automatically have the same availability date/time restrictions.
