The New Attempt button is used to create an attempt to submit your assignment to your instructor. Generally, when you click the New Attempt button, a box will appear for you to create a title and upload your file(s). Sometimes, when you click New Attempt, the button does not do anything. Here are a few causes of why the button may not be functional:
- The assignment is past due. Please contact your instructor for more details on submitting a late assignment.
- The assignment has not started yet. You can only create attempts for assignments during the week that they are due. Once the week starts, the button will become functional.
- The assignment has already been final submitted. If this is the case, please contact your instructor if a new attempt is needed.
In rare cases, there may be an issue with your internet browser and the New Attempt button. If you are sure that the situation is not related to the above categories, try clearing out your cache and cookies or restarting your computer.
