[LON-CAPA-users] No timer for instructor / Reset timer

We have a course with several LON-CAPA problems in different folders. 
Parameters are set on folder level, such as open date, due date, timer, 
etc. Nothing really special.

I'd like to change the parameters for an instructor (and only for this 
person) to allow "free" access to all resources. My idea was to set the 
parameters at course level for this specific user. The table mode allows 
this, e.g., set "problem type" to "practice" at course level for this 
user works fine. But the possibility to explicitly not set a parameter 
does not exist for all parameters, especially not for the timer.

I don't know how to manage this. Currently, the instructor is forced to 
access the resources with the time limit. To set the timer to the 
maximum (one month) is not an option.

Additionally, I can't find how to reset the timer. I thought this would 
be somehow possible in the manual grading?!? I can't find any help in 
the integrated help or older ML posts.
