Previewing dropbox folders and submissions

The preview option enables you to navigate the steps that users go through to submit files, review their submissions, and view submission history.

You can make a preview submission visible on the Submissions page, but you cannot give feedback, grades, or rubric scores to it because it is not tied to an actual user.
