Flipgrid offers Scheduled Dates as a way to make Topics available and closed for new video submissions for learners on specific dates. The active date will change the Topic Status from 🔴Hidden to 🟢Active. The freeze date will change the Topic Status from 🟢Active to 🥶Frozen. Frozen Topics are view-only, so learners can watch videos, but cannot add new videos Learn more about freezing Topics)
