Students can upload multiple files to an assignment. If you click on the submission and go to the left, you can toggle through the different files.

    Hi Jennifer, 

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community!

    Students have the ability to upload multiple files when submitting assignments in Schoology. 

    When teachers review the submission, they have the option to toggle back and forth to view different files.

    Are you expecting to see a different behavior?  If so, can you please let us know what you are expecting to see so we can get a better understanding of your goals and what you would like to accomplish.

    I find the current set-up for multiple attachments confusing. It is named revisions, so I wouldn't normally look in something with that title unless I am looking for revisions. If there are multiple attachments required for the assignment, such as: "Create two professional emails, screenshot them and then upload both of them to the assignment before turning in", then I'm expecting to see two attachments on the file as soon as I open it up. It's fine to have the revision referenced somewhere if you are an English teacher, or just to identify any work that has been resubmitted after changes have been made, but I feel the format falls short in the area of initial submissions from the teacher view. Not everyone needs to have revisions, so maybe changing the title from Revisions to Submissions (or Multiple Submissions since it automatically opens the first one anyway) and then maybe having some kind of special symbol, highlight, number, etc. on the dropdown if the work has been resubmitted again with revisions. Maybe for revisions, the color of the blue symbol that you can scroll through each student with (on the bottom or side of the teacher screen) can change from blue (submitted & needs to be graded) to green (if graded & no resubmissions) and another color, like orange (if the work has been resubmitted with revisions). Also, maybe these colors could match the colors in the current (poorly named) dropdown for multiple submissions.

    Hopefully, these are changes that can be made to help teachers identify where the work is. I wasted a lot of time not knowing that I was supposed to look there for multiple attachments on an assignment. The design is not very intuitive as it is right now--I've never worked on any other programs that "hide" the additional uploads.
