How to schedule Activity assignment dates and due dates

Scheduling Activities

Note: If students are logged in at the time the Activity is scheduled, they will need to refresh their page to view the new Activity in their student To-Do List. We recommend that students get in the habit of tapping their Activities tab each time they go to their Seesaw account. This will refresh their screen and show an up-to-date To-Do List. 

Scheduling Activity Due Dates
Due dates allow teachers to signal to students when they want an activity to be completed by.
  1. From an existing activity or from an activity you just created, tap the Assign button.

  2. Tap Due Date.
  3. Select the date and time you would like the activity to be due by.
  4. Teachers can choose to automatically archive an activity after the due date. When toggled on, students will no longer be able to respond to the activity.
