Default filename of batch submission download should be course+assignment name

The current default filename for downloading all submissions of a course is "submissions.zip". Instead, it should be a filename that reflects the course and assignment title.

Currently, I downloaded several batch submissions of assignments, but they are all labeled "submissions.zip" so then I end up with "submissions (1).zip" and "submissions (2).zip")

Thanks for sharing this idea. As it moves forward for broader discussion, you might be interested in supporting these ideas associated with submission downloads:

Download submissions into student folders - Canvas Community

Download assignments with student email rather tha... - Canvas Community

This would really help with managing a heavy grading load. I would like to have this ability.

@paulbui This is quiet necessary not just for the submissions folder, but for any folder download on Canvas.

@drosoff Yes. It would be just as helpful to course participants who otherwise have end up with a set of common filenames for all download folders.

Have raised a similar request with some suggestions here-
For 'Files' section: change default name of the downloaded folders

Thank you
