After creating a content object, you have the option to add some additional Availability settings. Availability settings allow the Site Administrator to control the publishing and time restrictions that can be applied to a Content Object.
Please note, the certificate must be Released as well. If the certificate is left in Draft mode, it will NOT release.
If you have assigned a Content Object to be released at a future date through Availability Settings, applied an Access Control that does not include you, or assigned a Dependent Release, the Content Object will be grayed out in the Administrator's view. The student(s) who should not will NOT see the Object until all criteria are met. View the Permissions Summary to see a report of all permissions applied to a content object.
