Values set for term padding will determine how many days terms are considered part of the “current term” before they start and after they end. The default is set to seven days before and after the starting and ending dates of the term. The term padding dates can be edited at any time to allow the staff access to classes if the term dates are not current.
Select the "Term Padding" option from Account Settings.
Type in the number of days desired for term padding by either clicking in the field and typing the desired number of days or use the up/down arrows to the right of the field to set the number of days.
To exit the term padding edit window, click on the "X" in the upper right corner or choose another option in the Settings list.
