A student submitted an assignment as a PDF via email. They do not have access to Canvas today. Can I load that PDF into their Canvas account to grade?
You could add it as an attachment in Speedgrader for the student, but it wouldn't show up as a submission and you wouldn't be able to use Crocodoc to grade it.
Judith, Kona Jones has given you the best workaround, as it's not currently possible to submit an assignment on behalf of a student in Canvas. You might want to look through the extensive conversation surrounding the feature idea Submit an assignment on behalf of a student--and perhaps even add your own vote and comment to it.
