My submission date has changed! What happened?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 6 November 2019, 11:21 AM)

Most assignments on MySats have been configured to accept multiple submissions, also called "drafts".  When you upload a document to an assignment, you will notice on the summary screen that your document has been labeled "Draft (not submitted)".  Take note of the following screen shot:

Draft submission

If you initially uploaded your assignment, but only clicked submit sometime later, the timestamp on your submission will reflect the date you clicked submit, not the date you uploaded your file.  For this reason, it is important that you pay careful attention to the assignment status and follow the submission instructions carefully.  A successfully submitted assignment will reflect as "Submitted for grading" as can be seen in the screenshot below:

Submitted for grading

NB. An assignment may no longer be edited by you if you have clicked the submit button.  If you have accidentally submitted the assignment and need to make a revision before the due date, notify your lecturer immediately.  Your assignment will be "reverted to draft" and then you may make the appropriate changes.  If the due date has passed, you may not make any changes to your assignment and it will be marked as is.
