We have focussed this release on improving the workflow for teachers collecting and returning assignments.
Ready to Collect
You no longer have to make a collection to see if your students have handed-in their work. For each student on an assignment, you will see an icon under 'Ready to collect' which shows the number of files that student has handed-in and is awaiting collection. Once the collection is complete, this number will return to zero until more work is submitted.
Collect and Return All
Rather than having to select all students to collect their work, you can now click on Collect All at any point and pick whether to collect each student, or only the students who have handed in work (see additional features below).
Only Collect students with submissions
Now if you try to make a collection (either as an individual collection, or by clicking 'Collect All') when a student has yet to hand in any files, you will be alerted that this will create a blank collection and you can choose to skip over students with no files or continue with making the blank collection. This is useful if you need to keep a note that the student didn't complete their work on time.
This means that you can now just click on 'Collect All' whenever you want to check for new work and automatically skip students with no files submitted so you won't see the 'No files collected' error message any more.
