Bulk adding items to Commons

As far as I can see, the addition of content to Commons is from units. Is it possible to add content from within the Commons tool itself? I'm looking to add to Commons a number of images and see I can add multiple images from one unit/course. However, being able to drag-and-drop from a computer, into Commons, would be much quicker.

Is that possible?

Hi @DavidJHall ...

Unfortunately, Canvas Commons does not have a drag-n-drop feature.  You'd have to add all your images to a module within your course and then share the module to Canvas Commons.  It sounds like you're already doing that ... or at least some form of that.  If you wanted to submit this as a new idea to be considered for implementation, you could do that by following the Guides listed here:

Instructure Community Guide - Instructure Community (canvaslms.com)

Check out the section on "Ideas and Themes".  In particular, check out the Guide on how to create a new idea.

I hope this will help in some way.
