      Description

      The default setting of the plugin is set to 1 MB. This behaviour is different to any other upload features in Moodle. The default setting should be the same as in other plugins. They are taken from general setting.
      The problem is that admins miss to configure the submission setting and teachers can't set any file size above 1MB. File uploads bigger than 1MB are the standard today.
