Changing a Google Doc Template

Once we have started a Canvas Assignment using the external tool feature with Google Docs, is it possible to change the template before students go into the assignment?

Hello @ReginaldSmith5 

If you have linked the the assignment via external tools and it takes them to the Google assignment - yes any  changes you make on Google would reflect when students are redirected away from Canvas. Additionally, you can make Canvas edits to the assignment after students have taken it i.e. change points or assignment  group etc. Hopefully this helps!

Would we navigate to the assignment in Google Drive to make the changes to the assignment template. We have tried this and the students are still getting the "old" version instead of the most up to date version.
