Peer reviews for assignments with no submission?

Is it possible to create an assignment with peer reviews when there is no student submission to Canvas?  I use Flipgrid to have students create videos and comment on their peers' videos, and I would like to randomly assign peer reviews for them. However, the assignment as I created it is "submitting: nothing", so it doesn't seem like peer reviews would work, as there is no work inside Canvas for the students to review.

Would it work to create the assignment as a "Mark done" assignment and then set up the peer review settings?  At least that way there would be some record of students finishing something and reviews could be assigned (in theory).

Thank you for any help!

Hello @kjohn113 ,

I will be happy to help answer this. Currently, Peer reviews require a submission for automatic assigning as explained here but you can manually assign them and they should still be able to reply and post comments if needed.
