Enable External Tool Submission

I got Google Assignments configured finally but now I need the ability for students to submit their Google Docs directly using the External Tool Sumbission option that I've see on YouTube Videos.

    Thank you for reaching out Mcorey, if you are looking for the External tool Submission , the language term for the Submission type has been changed in here from

    • On paper submission --> external tool submission
    • Observed in person --> In-person/on-paper submission

    So the YouTube video I'm referencing in the screenshot is dated and the "External Tool submission" is now "On Paper Submission"?

    Hello @mcorey_actonschool,

    I believe the language term for the 'External tool submission' is changed via the Language Management in the video you are referring. The default value for this option is 'On paper submission'

    If you would like to apply the same changes, the term that affects this is,

    • Term Name: optSubmissionTypeOnPaper
    • Default Value: On paper submission

    I hope this helps!

    Kind Regards,
