    Description

      This is partly because it is broken down into plugins which each add their own settings to the form, but it could still be improved.

      Suggestions for improvement:

      1. Add admin defaults for every setting on the page and allow settings to be locked by admin.
      2. Combine all the submission enabled settings to a list of checkboxes on the same row instead of one row for each.
      3. Allow templates at an admin level which can be used to auto fill out all the settings on the page. E.g. "File upload assignment"
