    When setting up an assignment with an online file submission, it would be useful to be able to choose to limit the size of the file that students can upload.


    • Students in many disciplines upload huge files that are not properly optimised, which makes downloading or viewing in the Speedgrader difficult and time-consuming for teachers. 
    • File optimisation is sometimes part of the curriculum requirements, and setting this criteria in the assignment would be very useful.


    While Canvas reports there is an approximately 500MB limit for student submissions, students have successfully uploaded much larger files.
