Google Docs for an individual term paper?


I have my students write a term paper in stages, using a template and submitting each stage for review. They update their MS Word doc and submit it repeatedly in a series of  Canvas Assignments.  The paper is a full term paper with running header, running footer, cover page, etc.


It would be easier all around if their doc lived on a Canvas (or Google) server, and the students just updated it.  But the usual text box Canvas Assignment does not have all the fancy formatting I need. 


It is surprising to me that there is no easy way to put a google doc into an individual student Assignment.  If we can do it on a Collaboration, why can't we do it for each student?



I have a sneaking feeling that I am missing something obvious.  Is there a simple way to put a doc on Canvas for students to edit?
