I am designing a course in Canvas to be used to verify a student's community service hours and to run an ongoing tally of those earned hours.  I have a good TEST design but I don't want to reinvent the wheel.  Has anyone else used a Canvas course as a placed to verify (and archive) community service documentation and "grade" it as hours earned and allow the grade center to sum the hours as the documentation is submitted by individual students?  I am using Assignments and an upload submission style and having the assignments set to 0 points but awarding students points (which are hours of community service) as I grade them.  They have to earn 90 to graduate.  The coordinator uses the grade center to report to our Registrar who enters the sums into his SIS.  Ideas?
