When attaching a Google document to an assignment users are currently limited to one Google file. There is no "add additional file" option like the one seen when you are attaching a file from another location.
This idea is now open for voting.
Just to clarify: Is this so students will not have to "resubmit assignment" to add another Google file? If so, I would love that because students get kind of freaked out about "resubmitting" because they think they are going to lose the original or they are going to be marked as late or something even though the teacher says it's fine.

This idea has resurfaced and is now open for voting:
Why has this not gained more votes? How do I resubmit the idea.... It's annoying as heck downloading each google doc when you want kids to submit multiple files...
This idea is one of the lucky ones that was selected to get a little more time for voting as part of our evolution of the feature idea process. It was selected because of it's vote count and/or comment thread.
*Selection criteria: Most (not all) ideas that received 70+ votes in their initial voting round.
Could not believe this (multiple file upload selection) was not implemented in deployment. I spent a lot of time reading/searching for ideas & finally gave up. As a student, when future teachers suggest using Google Drive for submitting assignments, I’ll respectfully voice my concerns with the reasons why & recommend it not be a requirement. It is not efficient for the purposes intended. My frustration led me to submit a comment (2/11/18).
My 2¢ worth, respectfully.
I have students who use multiple computers to pull and push documents for school. It would be nice if there would be an option to add additional files from Google Drive and Office 365 rather than having students download files on their computer and then manually add each on the submission page.
how do I vote for this!! we need this so badly!
This is a necessity! Would be so helpful
