Turnitin: issues downloading individual/bulk original file format

9 April – ongoing

There is currently an issue when users attempt to request individual or bulk download of the ‘original file’ format from an anonymous submission point. When the download is triggered, the following message is shown onscreen, “there was an error processing your request”.

This means that there is not a solution for downloading original paper formats (e.g., Word, PDF, PPTX format) at this time. A ticket has been logged with Turnitin.

Workaround

A workaround is to place a piece of annotation on the paper and then download the Grademark papers individually or in bulk, if you require PDF format for marking purposes.
