  4. When setting up the submission folder, we recommend checking “submission options” – this sets unlimited submissions and all submissions are kept.  ALSO, we recommend adding an email address to the notification email field so you are notified when things are submitted (because this folder will have many submissions, it could span a long duration, and submissions may come in fits and spurts).

  5. Associate the assignment submission folder to the Grade item: Hours Tracking. Add in the Out of Score to match the grade item – in our example, this will be 1,000.
