Type: Feature Request
Affects Version/s: 12.0, 19.0
Fix Version/s: None
SAK-32064 blocked the ability to change between group and regular submissions after an assignment has been created. The easiest solution 1 to block changes was implemenetd. Some people still want to be able to do this.
Now that 12.x is out with a better database model we could investigate/implement one of the other solutions
2. Delete the individual dummy submission records when an assignment's type is changed to group submission.
3. Fix the code so that the dummy submissions are ignored for group assignments.
To implement 2, we'd have to identify which ones are dummy. This isn't entirely clear as some may already have submissions made. If submissions are made and group assignment is changed it either needs to.
(Going from group to regular)
- Assign the submissions for the group to each individual member that was part of the group.
(Going from regular to group)
- Assign the individual submission(s) to a group. (Not sure how this would work out with multiple)
Or easiest just delete all submissions and tell the instructor that any submissions made are going to be removed. If this was carried further some UI that gives access to previous submissions would be nice but a separate request.
For 3 it seems like it'd run into similar issues with existing submissions. I think something would have to be done with the code.
