Downloading zip'd homework folder with titles

Jump to solution

When downloading students work to my laptop I see that the zip files have the generic title "submissions." I teach four different classes. My download folder has submissions (1).zip, (2) etc etc. There are no class identifiers in the folder name. Is there a way to program canvas to assign a specific title to the download files as its gathering and compressing the work?

Currently, this option is not available in Canvas.  If you would like to see this implemented, please submit a Feature Idea at Share Ideas​.  What you can do, depending on your browser settings is have the browser prompt you where to save the file instead of auto-downloading it to say the downloads folder. You can then put in your own custom file name.
