Deleting Assignments

I work at a high school with iPad carts where several students share devices.  At times, the students aren't paying attention to whose account the device is signed in to, and submit assignments to someone else's account.  A feature that allows a student to delete an assignment would really help.  As it stands now, two students are in a pickle--one thinks the instructor has his work but he doesn't, and the instructor may think that a particular student turned in an assignment but it really wasn't the student in question.

Hi  @bbilderback ...

I don't believe this is currently possible.  However, I did submit a Feature Idea for a similar request back in April 2015: https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/1293" modifiedtitle="true" title="Move or Delete Incorrectly S....  Unfortunately, it didn't get enough votes to move on to the next stage of the voting/development process.  You might want to consider re-submitting something similar as a new Feature Idea.  You never know...maybe priorities have changed for people compared to two years ago.  https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-1330-how-do-i-create-a-new-feature-idea 

I hope this helps, Barbara.

Hi  @bbilderback ...

I thought that I would check in with you again because we've not heard back from you since you first posted this question on October 19, 2017.  Have you had an opportunity to review my feedback from later that day?  If so, did it help to answer your question?  Do you have any additional questions as it relates to the inability of deleting assignments?  Since we've not heard from you for almost four months, I am going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered", but that won't keep you or others from posting additional questions and/or comments below that are related to this topic.  I hope that's alright with you, Barbara.  Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.

I am a bit puzzled. My questions was how the teacher could delete assignments incorrectly submitted, and your response was that it is not possible. Has that changed?

Hi  @bbilderback ...

To my knowledge, this functionality has not changed.  You cannot delete assignments from students once they have been submitted to you.  Back on October 19, 2017 I gave you a link to this Feature Idea: https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/1293-move-or-delete-incorrectly-submitted-assignments" modifie....  I would encourage you to vote for this and maybe even add your comments as to why this Feature Idea would be important to you.  That way, Instructure has your feedback to use as they consider developing this kind of thing.  Sorry if there was any confusion.
