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