Hi Lars,

Yes, you should be able to do this using slots.

The process should be

- create the slot
   - PARM -> Mange Course Slots -> Create A New Slot
   - Fill in the information, From what you say here, I'm guessing you
     want an instructor assigned slot

- nav to a resource in the folder

- click on PPRM and set folder wide
    - Open Date, Due Date, Answer Date (The opendate and duedate
    should be at least a large a scope as the dates on the slot)

    - "Use slot based access control" to 
      "Yes, and the scope of student selected slot is the enclosing
      map/folder. When checking in, all resources in the map/folder
      are checked in.."
    - "Slots of availability" to the name of the slot you created

When Viewing the problem after the open date but before the slot's
start time, you will see the text

"Not open to be viewed, Will be next available: <description text that
you set on the slot>"

- You can modify any aspects of a slot at any time by going through
  PARM -> Mange Course Slots and clicking the Edit link next to the
  slot's listing in the table. 

- If you have created multiple slots, you can have all of these be
  available for use by listing them in the 
   "Slots of availability" as a colon separated list
  Students will be allowed to only use one of these slots. Once they
  are checked in they will need to complete the problems.
