How do I add multiple files to my Assignment submission?

You can upload multiple files to your submission.

Note: Each user has 250 MB of storage space in Canvas. Personal files include profile pictures, uploaded assignment submissions, and other files uploaded to your personal Canvas file storage area. If you delete a file that you submitted as an assignment in your personal storage area, it will not delete the assignment submission in the course.
