"Last Modified" date not updating in a drive with shared files.
I'm using google in my class and I have several folders that contain files shared individially with my students. I'm using them the keep track of grades & assignments (quests). Problem is the "last modified" date is not getting update on *some* files, which means I can't tell when my students have done something without opening those files.
With a largish class, this ends up costing me a lot of extra time.
I'm using Chrome, but this happens no matter what browser I'm using and on all my machines (several windows machines in different locations, an iPad, and a transformer).
Can this be fixed? Failing that, is there something I can do to "touch" all those files and force the "last modified" date to update?
Unfortunately, Classroom doesn't have enough functionality yet to meet my needs. My course is a gamified design and the assessment is quite varied and complex. Most of my quests have no specific due dates and many can be repeated for points. With 50 students and 60 potential quests, I need a system that helps me track all of this. Right now I'm using a fairly complex spreadsheet, and the students have a quest log. I need to know when they've changed their quest log.
Now back to your problem, have you tried clearing your cache and cookies? Can you post a screenshot of your problem too?
Oddly, *some* of the files in this folder have the correct 'last modified' date, and others don't. They were all created using doctopus.
For a second, try clearing your cache and cookies and disable extensions.
Do I need to clear cache on every instance of the browser (i.e. from each of my devices) or can I do it from a single location?
Clearing the cache and cookies (since the beginning of time, lol) has not resolved the issue.
One (only) of my doc is affected, and I noticed there is a message says "1 other viewer" at the top right corner of the doc, I wonder that is the caused? ie my other device/PC/browser is locking the file? :/
What I did: logged in google drive using firefox, clicked logged out (not just close the browser), then logged in using chrome, again logged out. Finally logged in again using chrome, edit the doc, last modified date updated according!! problem solved!! :)
