Does anyone know if we have any report on calculating how many downloads of a particular file in Canvas course? I see in Analytics, we have only file uploads. But our faculty prefer to see the download instead.
I have tried to find a workaround for our faculty to upload the file in Google Drive and link it to Canvas course. However, without a paid education Google account, we can not see the download report also.
Thanks for your reading and look forward to hearing any suggestion or workaround.
