# I put "text box" in an assignment and one student uploaded her essay, it now shows up in every class members submission spot. How do I delete the essay from everone elses place on Canvas?
Good morning, Carol Quinn Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thank you for posting your question. Generally speaking, assignment submissions cannot be deleted. This sounds very strange that a single student's submission would be appearing for all students in your course. You don't have that set up as a group assignment, do you? Normally, if the assignment is not a group assignment, you should not be seeing that one submission for everyone. Since the vast majority of people here in the Community do not have access to your school's Canvas environment or your particular course, I would recommend that you contact Canvas Support a.s.a.p. to see if they would be able to investigate this more with you. You should be able to contact them via the links in the global navigation "Help" menu: How do I get help with Canvas as an instructor? I hope this information will be of help to you, Carol. Please come back to this topic and provide an update once you've chatted with Canvas Support. Thanks!
Thank you Chris,
I realized I could delete the entire assignment, getting rid of the whole assignment allowed me to reassign without the "group assignment" I had put in. I am fairly new to Canvas and still learning the "ins and outs". I had an additional essay from the student because it had been emailed to me so I think the problem is solved.
