Adding Start, Due, or End dates to a Dropbox assignment in your course will help  inform a student of your expectations. Dates on Dropboxes limit when a student can view and submit work. Please review the tutorial: The Difference between Start, Due, and End dates.

Note: It is a best practice to set a Start, End, and Due date on a dropbox that utilizes Turnitin in order to have originality reports generate after the due date. See the tutorial on Enabling Turnitin on an Existing Dropbox.
