3/14/2023 – Submit a File Upload Assignment for a Student

In this Canvas release, instructors can submit a file upload assignment on behalf of a student in the Gradebook when the “Submission-submit on behalf of student” permission is enabled. The submission includes the timestamp and who submitted the assignment. Additionally, the instructor can submit multiple files at a time for a single student and submit beyond the availability date.

This update allows instructors the option to support students in situations that need an alternative means of submission. Instructors can only submit assignments on behalf of students when File Upload is one of the available submission types.
