Student submission attachments of zero bytes - Learn 9.1 assignment

We have several reports and evidence that student submission attachments via the standard Blackboard assignment tool become zero bytes in the Blackboard system.


  1. Are colleagues experiencing similar issues;
  2. What do colleagues think about changing the system to reject zero byte submissions (currently it will accept them);
  3. How difficult would a report on zero byte attachments be?
  4. … and how difficult to automate an email notification to students & instructors of zero byte submissions?

I have created a case and will probably be instructed to create a product ehnacement request - so the more that jump onto this the more likely we are to get it!

Many thanks
