As currently implemented, the "Download All Submitted Documents" feature 
will only retrieve files which a student has submitted to an essayresponse 
problem by using the "Select Portfolio Files" link, and browsing personal 
portfolio space in LON-CAPA, then selecting the file, and submitting. 

A single file submitted by a student directly to the problem using the 
"Browse" button to the right of the text: "Submit a file: (only one file can 
be uploaded)" will not be retrieved and included in the zip file. 

I'll file a bug about this in http://bugs.loncapa.org/

> Hi,
> I've tried searching for information on the Download All Submitted
> Documents feature of the grading menu for essay response problems, but I
> didn't find anything.  Sorry in advance if this is covering old territory.

> I've been trying to use interactive Excel sheets with my class in-lab, and
> having the students upload it into an essay response question where I've
> deleted the text-entry area.  It all seems to work well:  from the grading
> menu, I can download their submissions one by one by clicking on the link
> to the uploaded file.  At the top of the screen, there is a link Download
> All Submitted Documents which appears to try to zip up all the files in a
> super-convenient directory format for download. 
> Problem is, apart from the directory structure, the zipfile contains only
> the manifest which states "No Files Submitted" for each student. 
> This would be a great feature for me if I could get it to work.  Has
> anyone had success with this? 
> Thanks for the help,
> Cheers,
