Assign From App - Google Drive does not copy over


When using "copy from course" and the "Assign From App - Google Drive," any document embedded to an assignment does not copy over, only the assignment description. If you want teachers to use this without issue, please figure a way to save some of the extra time of adding each google doc.

    Hi Sarah,

    Thank you for sharing your idea!

    When a Google Doc is added within the Google Drive Assignments app, the sharing permissions for that document are specific to the members of that course. When you copy a Google Drive Assignment out of that course to another course, the membership in the new course is most often not the same as the original course. This poses a conflict with document permissions.

    This is a limitation within the Google sharing permissions, which we hope that Google will update in the future to allow this type of copying from course-to-course.

    This post will remain active so that we can continue to track support for this feature, thanks again for posting!
