 @carltonmitchell  Welcome to the Canvas Community! Students' assignment submissions cannot be deleted. However, students can submit, and resubmit, to the same assignment as many times as they'd like, as long as the assignment's until date has not passed. Please refer to Can a student resubmit any assignment?  and https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-9539-421241972 (resubmit instructions for students are near the bottom of that second lesson).

My students are claiming they cannot resubmit, that Canvas tells them they have already submitted and cannot again. I am using the plagarism tool. Is this why they are having trouble? Also do I need a date in the "until" box, because I left it blank and just have a due date.

Thank you
