Add a link to an excel spreadsheet in a Canvas Quiz (old) that uses Lockdown Browser

Hi All, 

I'm trying to do the following:

https://support.respondus.com/support/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/233/0/can-spreadsheets-b...

But the instructions provided by respondus are not specific to Canvas.   Has anyone done this??  I can't seem to get it to work.

I have not tried using an excel spreadsheet, or any document, with lockdown browser, and so I recommend testing this as a fake student (not just student view) before relying on it with a live class.

To modify the instructions for canvas, you should be able to save the file in the files section, and set the permission to "only available to students with a link."  Then insert a link to the file into the question with the built in canvas tools.  In the new rce the file insert functions look like this screenshot:

If you do not see these options you can turn them on in settings > feature options > RCE enhancements.
