Assign to Group but allow Individual Assignment Uploads

Idea created by Jenna Goldsmith on Sep 14, 2018

    Throughout the semester the Biology Department at FAU has many assignments that have multiple due dates for groups of students. Students are assigned a group but must upload individual assignments to receive their grade. On Canvas we have the option to select "This is a Group Assignment" and "Assign Grades to Individual Students". I think it would be great if Canvas could add a second box to check that says "Allow Student to Submit Individual Assignment". This would take out the time consuming notion of having to type individual names into due date boxes if we don't want to just assign it to every and have to check time stamps for when the student submitted. When you regulate 48 different course sections which adds up to over 1200 students there is no time for this.
