How do I have students submit work in canvas via OneNote Class Notebook

I have installed the Class Notebook LTI for my canvas courses, set up the notebooks, and mapped them with the canvas courses and students.

Here is what I am trying to do.

I create a reflection assignment in canvas, and have the submission method set to the external tool setting and mark OneNote Class Notebook as the external tool. I finish creating the assignment, and post.

Students view assignment page, and can indeed see the integrated Onenote box, they sign-in and follow assignment instructions by writing me a reflection in the desired location.

When I view my grade book in canvas it shows the assignment, but doesn't show that students have submitted anything. How can I set this up so that I create an assignment via canvas, have them complete it in onenote, and have it pull automatically to my grade book?

Am I misunderstanding the way the tool is used?

Hi Pat, it's been about a year since I've used the integrated Canvas/OneNote feature. In the past, I also found this problematic. My workaround was to grade the assignment in OneNote versus Canvas. It's not as user-friendly, but it should work. I hope this helps!
