I should be able to upload an assignment set to me as an email into garbed but I have no clue how to do this. They have sent the file as a PDF. Can anyone help? Sage
Hi Barbara Skog...
If I am understanding your question correctly, it sounds like you received a file submission (PDF) from a student via e-mail, and now you are wondering if you can submit that assignment on behalf of the student back to Canvas. If this is the case, this is a very popular request by many people here in the Canvas Community. In fact, the idea is already marked as "Under Consideration" here: Submit an assignment on behalf of a student. You can read more about what "Under Consideration" means by visiting How does the feature idea process work?. If you want, you can also post your comments on the first link I gave you...stating why this feature is important to you. The folks from Instructure do read the comments here, and they will respond back if necessary.
Also, because your question has a potential "Correct" answer, I am going to switch your question from a "Discussion" to a "Question". "Discussion" questions don't necessarily have a "correct" answer, but yours seems to have a "correct" answer.
Hope this helps, Barbara.
Barbara, I'm not sure what "garbed" is, so I'm going to go with the idea that an Instructor wants to submit a file in Canvas on behalf of a student. Chris is correct that this is not currently possible in Canvas. If you're an admin you can log in as the student and submit the file, you can request that the student log into Canvas and submit the file themselves (which is what we normally recommend), or you can have the teacher download and save the file on their computer, then go to Speedgrader for the assignment and to the specific student and attach the file to the assignment and add a comment of what happened and that it's the student's file that's attached.
Hope one of these options works for your situation!
