Is there a way to incorporate an automatic late penalty for assignments or discussion posts?

I have a late policy in my syllabus that states a student will lose x% per day late. I was wondering if there was a way to automatically do this in assignments or discussion rubrics? Thanks!

    Hi @Jake.H.597

    Unfortunately, this workflow is not currently possible on Brightspace. That said I have also identified it as feature request in our Product Idea Exchange.

    So I strongly recommend you upvote it.
