I see there is a note about running this process prior to enrollment. Is there a way to do this after enrollment has occurred?

Hello Cristina, Thank you for your question regarding dynamic class dates. A QRG will walk you through the steps of calculating dynamic class dates for a specific class section if enrollment already exists. Please review 9.2 Class Section Dynamic Dates Have a great day, Cristina! ~Tanjagay Martin | CS Core Trainer

Can a course have both an OEE and a Dynamic date or can a course only have one?
