    This is close to what I need, but I really need something that has an Extension Request button but then generates a form field where a student can explain a reason for the request, as well as a new due date request field, and a Teacher select button with a menu displaying selectable teachers on the course. The submission would then send this form to the selected teacher via email and the teacher manually grants or denies an extension as per usual. Is it possible to modify this plugin for that option?
