Download attachments submission comments

Hi everyone, 

I have a course with 200+ students. The students will upload an assignment and the teachers then give a grade and post an assessment form in the comments. Is there a way to download all attachments in the comments, for all students, in one go?

It's not possible through the UI interface.

However, you can write a simple program (E.g. easiest is VBA through Excel) to irritate through each submission (via Canvas API), look for the attachment's download link in each comment then list it on the spreadsheet. You can then feed those links to a downloader program.
