Add 'Comments' Field to Google Cloud Assignment Submission

As described here (access Formative Feedback via Canvas course), the Comments field that learners see when submitting assignments in Canvas is a highly valuable, if currently overlooked, mechanism to prompt student reflection and metacognition.

Unfortunately, there is currently no 'Comments' option when students submit Google Docs Cloud Assignments in Canvas.

This will allow you to maintain Comments in Google Docs.

Thank you for sharing this idea with the Instructure Community!

The Product Team reviewed all feature proposals recently, and unfortunately, this thread was identified as one that they would not be able to include in their current or future plans. While we appreciate your proposal, we also want to be transparent about the likelihood of something like this making it to production.

Thank you for collaborating, and we hope that you submit another idea in the future!
