A situation recently came up in class where we wanted to remove a submission that a student uploaded to an assignment. We were told by support that "the only way to do that is to remove the assignment completely from the course," which isn't the most convenient thing (because then we delete other submissions by other students).
It would be useful to have an option for faculty and TAs to delete submissions for individual students.
This idea was considered when developing our product plan for Q3 2019 and is not expected to influence development within Canvas at this time.
- This idea will remain open for vote.
- If this idea is in the top 10% by vote next cycle it will be reconsidered.
