I am trying to download assignment submissions in bulk, but do not get the option (I've followed the tutorial I found).
I can't seem to do it from either the gradebook or the assignment feature.
Hi Karla Stone and Welcome to the Canvas Community! Are you not seeing the Download Submissions link on the side bar on the right side of the that specific assignment?
Or from the grade book are you not seeing:
As a reminder, Bulk downloads can be used for the following submission types: file uploads, text entries (displayed as HTML files), website URLs (displayed as HTML files), and Google Docs submissions.
I was told by the support folks at my institution that bulk downloads are not available in discussions.
You were told correctly. If you look at the list provided by Robbie Grant Admin, you will note that Discussions are not included in downloads. Also, please note this quote from the SpeedGrader guide provided by Eric Werth,
"Bulk downloads can be used for the following submission types: file uploads, text entries (displayed as HTML files), website URLs (displayed as HTML files), and Google Docs submissions."
There is a feature idea requesting this very capability upon to be voted on. In fact, it is currently one of our top ten vote receivers. Check it out at Download discussion board posts Check it out and add your vote if you agree, and add your comments to help clarify and support this needed function.
I hope this is helpful,
Hi Karla. I assume that when you mention tutorials you are referring to the directions found in the following pages?
How do I download all student submissions for an assignment in the Gradebook?
How do I download all student submissions for an assignment in SpeedGrader?
I just checked in my courses and see the download option. Have you tried in different web browsers such as Chrome and FireFox? Sometimes this makes a difference. If you still have trouble it might be worth submitting a help ticket to Canvas support to see if they have insight into what might be happening.
I hope this helps and best wishes!
