Identifying Files Available to Students in Canvas Data

Hi all,


I’m trying to work out how many of the files available to students in a course have been accessed by each of them.  I know I can use the Access Report download but this won’t necessarily give an accurate number for files available only a number of files actually accessed.


A course that I’m looking at has 930 files in the file_dim but I know that they aren’t all available to students.  The Access Report shows that only 130 have been looked at by any of the 180 students. 


Does anyone know a way to identify which of these files is available to students using Canvas data?


Thank you all in advance.
