I have a student telling me he has not had an acknowledgement of submission of an assignment. Is this a function in Canvas? Can I do it for all those that have submitted in one go?
firstname.lastname@example.org , after a student successfully submits an assignment, he can navigate back to the assignment page, whereupon he will see a notation in the upper right corner of the screen that looks like this:
This is detailed in How do I submit an online assignment? (under View Submission).
Students do not receive external notifications that they have completed their assignment submissions. You might want to add your feedback to the feature idea that is in the "Gathering Info" stage and still open for voting: E-mail Confirmation Upon Assignment Submission
