How do I download a file attachment in an assignment?
Rick Murch-Shafer is correct. You cannot download any assignment information from the Canvas Teacher app. All grading and annotations need to be done inside the app.
If you want to download the assignment, I would suggest doing this through the Canvas Student app. If you access the assignment, you can download the assignment to your phone or open it in a different app. The only issue is you can't re-upload the assignment back into Canvas on a mobile device.
Here is what it looks like from the Student app using iOS:
You should just be able to click on the link to the file and it will download.
I'm working from the canvas mobile app from my iPad pro. I'm trying to download a PowerPoint file from a student assignment. So it's not the same as on my laptop. I touch the file but it won't download. Know how it works in this format?

I didn't realize you were talking about mobile use with Canvas Teacher. I just looked around in Canvas Teacher on both my iPhone and iPad and also did not see any option to download or open submitted files in another app. I'm guessing if you used Safari you'd have the option, but I'm also reaching out to a couple of our mobile experts to see if we are missing something about being able to do this from the App. Ryan Seilhamer Kristin Lundstrum
I’d like to suggest you make it so you can download a file from a student assignment. I have to look at a video inside a PowerPoint and can’t if I can’t download the PowerPoint.

Hi Debra Smith,
I can definitely see a use case for this, especially when media is embedded in a PPT. As for requesting this as a feature, you best route would be to create a Canvas Feature Idea. This will give others the chance to vote and add their comments. You can find the information here:
