If you upload corrected or graded documents to student dropboxes you have to put some sort of comment in the feedback box for the file to show up to the student. You could even put something generic like “See document below” and it works fine. If you put nothing though, the link to the document you submitted does not show up. (Note: Problem should be fixed when the next update is applied to D2L, possibly in March.)
If you upload a file to the dropbox and then remove it and try to add another file....and you then receive an error message... you can get rid of the error by clicking the RETRACT button to remove the file. You will then be able to add another feedback file to the student's dropbox. Note: Make sure you type a comment in the comment box (see above bullet) to enable the student to see the file you upload.
Students - DO THIS! (Please read what not to do below!)

Look for the instructor file at the bottom of the window that opens.
