Preview Before Submission

I wondered why Canvas doesn't have the option to review an uploaded file before submission, leaving room for one to submit a wrong file accidentally. You can only what you submitted after your submission and it doesn't seem right. It's like printing a document, you get a chance to preview it before you hit the print button. Kindly look into this issue, please. This wasn't an issue on Blackboard. Thank you.

Sorry I don't have better news for you at this time, but I hope this will be helpful in some way.
