I started using the "late submission" feature in MindTap in the spring semester; it's a brand new gradebook feature. My assignments are due on a given date, but now MindTap allows us to set up a late submission period during which students may still submit assignments and determine a penalty for late submissions.
This worked great in the spring semester and in a four-week session that started in May. It worked for the first few assignment in the session that just started in June, but starting with Chapter 3, students who had begun working prior to the due date couldn't get back in during the late submission period. I thought maybe it was just a fluke, but it happened with Chapter 4, too.
I already created a tech support ticket but was wondering if anyone else has used this feature. If so, is it working correctly? Thanks, all!

Thank you for posting about this, @Amy_Myers and for the work around option @Greg_Gellene. I am glad this option is available, but I can see the frustration from the students' side if they stay logged in. I will remember to share this unless there's a fall update from Cengage that would correct the issue.
