Hi all,
I have a simple question today. Can we block our students from uploading assignments and other stuff on files. This actually create a big mess. Students are supposed to upload their assignments in assignment portion but some of them upload those in files. This create a big confusion for us. We cannot mark them manually and they get zero. This is alarming for us. Any solution

You could remove the rights of the members from being able to upload files into a channel folder via the SharePoint user interface. Use the "Manage Access" option in SharePoint for the associated channel folder (or entire document library if that is required).

@Saraiqbal2020, There are two different ways to do this. Admin can run script to block non-owners to share files. Second is the easiest way - follow below steps

 

> Go to the channel for which you want to block student from sharing any file

> Go to "Open in SharePoint"
