Multiple Student Submissions to Same Group Assignment (dropbox?)


I have a semester-long small group project, for which the small groups are to upload multiple (12+) submissions (includes files, url links, etc.).  I'd like for student groups to have the capability to submit their uploads as they complete them.  Therefore, the student groups' submissions will be at different times during the semester.  When I tried this as a "test student," I encountered this very clunky process of re-submission.  Really?

Please let me know if I'm missing something.  I really hope there's a much easier process in Canvas for students to submit their work.  Thanks, Michael Maguire - - Faculty Associate, UW-Madison School of Human Ecology

I’m not sure what you mean by “clunky” resubmission process, could you explain A little more? My students resubmit work all the time and it isn’t a problem, so I’m curious as to what I might be missing. 

One issue I do run into, that you may or may not be aware of, is that students can only see the most recent submission to an assignment. They can’t see previous submissions.
