hello,

we have a few teachers that are unable to change the permission on a document to allow the student to have there own document to edit, they only have the option to delete, the only way that we have seen to fix this is to recreate the assignment, it seems to be linked to the uploading of documents

 

if anyone has any information on this it would be appreciated

we have the answer and it me being daft, they were using the .doc file format, and teams does not allow that format to be used in that manner
