How can I submit a student's assignment for them - where they have emailed it to me?
You may want to vote for this idea (as it is not a current feature): Submit an assignment on behalf of a student and you might want to add why this feature is important to you.
There is a work around that Kona Jones suggested in a previous discussion to upload the file via SpeedGrader. While it won't show in the traditional sense, both you and the student will have access to the file and it will correspond to the proper assignment.
?Thanks for an encouraging and thoughtful reply. I have a follow-up question then - where do I vote for the idea? The reason one occasionally needs to to upload a student's work is that they have emailed the task or they are new students still not familiar with Canvas and therefore have emailed work. In particular if the work is simply ungraded coursework it would be useful to have this function.
Thanks again for your reply.
Sky provided the link to the idea in her post. It’s - Submit an assignment on behalf of a student
Yet, it looks like this feature might be coming in the upcoming updates to Canvas Assignments - Priority: Assignments 2.0
Hope this helps!
