[LON-CAPA-users] Allowing marker to "return" to student a file when there was no file submitted by the student.

Actually, I don't need it to be a "Drop Box" as such. Just a way to provide a personalized file to each&every individual student from the marker's local computer. I just thought of the "drop box", because that has the feature to return a revision of the student-submitted file.
Of course, I would like this to be associated with a gradable assessment resource.
Is there a feature of LON-CAPA which I am overlooking here?

Subject: Allowing marker to "return" to student a file when there was no file submitted by the student.
Is there a way to use a DropBox in LON-CAPA which would allow markers to "return" to students a file which the student never originally submitted to LON-CAPA?
For example, one wants to be able to "return" to students, via LON-CAPA, a revised and marked MSWord document, which was originally submitted to (shall we say) turnitin.com?
Presently, it seems to me, that one can only access the ability to return a file to the students, if there is FIRST a student-submitted file (and it should be the same type of file).
Perhaps there is a way for the instructor to submit a dummy Word document, on behalf of all students in their course, so as to initialize this feature?
Anyone is currently doing something like this?
Is there another, better way?
