If I create an assignment today but select a future date as the Assigned date, will the notification go out now, or will it go out on the Assigned date?
If the send notification box is marked, the notification will go out on the assigned date. Therefore, you can create an assignment today but mark the assigned date as 3 days from then and the notification will go out in 3 days.
Note: Students must be opted in to receive assignment notifications. This option can be found under the name menu > Settings > Notifications.
