How do I see all my students in the Dropbox Submissions area?

Here’s a topic from the D2L’s Assignment Dropbox in all its Glory! workshop:  Seeing all students listed in the Submissions area, even if they haven’t submitted an assignment yet.

Are you wondering why you don’t see all your students in your submissions area for your Dropbox?  Well, that’s because the default is to only list the students who have actually submitted assignments!  But, there is a way to view a complete list of students – but there’s a trick to it, so let’s explore that now!

  1. Go to the Dropbox tool in your course.
  2. Click on the title of the Dropbox activity you want to view submissions for.2.Click on the title of the Dropbox activity you want to view submissions for
