Hi. I'm very new to Canvas and the community.
I have a question based on our existing process, which we've ported into Canvas.
We have an assignment where the students upload a file, say .xslx or accdb. We grade the assignment using a google form and then have a script that assembles a report (pdf) that we want to upload in lieu of comments. We have about 400 students in the course, so manual uploads are painful. I'm looking for a built in way, either through the GUI or through an API, to do this.
I did read a post about uploading based on the same file name, but that's not going to work here. I can make the report have the same name, but not the same file type. So it doesn't seem like this route will work.
I also saw there is a feature proposal to do something like this. I don't need a feature if there's an API call I can use.
