We have installed the Google Drive LTI.
Although the documentation is very clear that "External Tool" assignments can't be group assignments, nowhere could I find documented that when the Submission Type is a "file upload", a document cannot be submitted from Google Drive as a group assignment. Nothing in the interface seems suggests this won't work. The Google Drive tab appears for the student, and if selected she can select from her Google Drive docs. However when tried, the "submitted" document does not appear in SpeedGrader and there is no sign in the grade book that there has been a submission. The student who attempted to submit the document receives no message suggesting that the submission failed.
Some relevant documentation is here: How do I upload a file from Google Drive as an assignment submission in Canvas?
My questions: Is this expected behavior? Am I doing something wrong?
I'd like to know if either of these are the case before filing a ticket.
@hesspe , this is an interesting question and in the past my students were able to submit to a group assignment from their Google Drive. Yet, it has been a while since I’ve had them do this, so something might have changed. My recommendation, if you haven’t already, is to go ahead and submit the help ticket.
Hi @hesspe and anyone else interested,
I have been informed that there is already an open engineering ticket regarding this and that I would be receiving updates as information becomes available.
The workaround in the meantime for Canvas group assignments is to download the Google Doc as a PDF and submit that as a file upload to the assignment.
Thank you for steering me in the right direction @hesspe
