Unable to Use Gradebook for Unreleased Assignments

Description

Current Behavior:

When I attempt to enter a grade in Gradebook for a not yet open course, I see a message stating 'The grade has been successfully edited. You may see a slight delay before updates appear in the Gradebook.' However, the grade remains 0. Screenshot attached. I believe this is because the course (https://gradebook.edx.org/course-v1:RWTHx+MTI006x+1T2021) has not yet opened and therefore the assignments have not yet been released. I believe this would be the same experience if the course was open, but the specific assignment was not yet released.

Desired Behavior:

We would like to be able to successfully enter grades via Gradebook for not yet open courses/not yet released content.

Why?

Support/Course Teams often times want to transfer a learner to the next run of a course. This is not possible if the course has not yet started, leading Support/Course Teams to have to remember to go back on specific dates to manually enter grades. There is lots of room for error/forgetfulness/learner frustration.
