I can't upload to Seesaw. How do I fix this?

Most schools can get going with Seesaw immediately, but if you have network filters or SPAM filters in place there are a few things to watch out for:

  • Ask your tech team to whitelist * (in other words, all domains that end with and make sure port 443 (SSL) is open.  If you can login as a teacher, add an item, and browse your class journal you are good to go.
  • For security, Seesaw exclusively uses SSL / HTTPS.  Some network filters that "inspect" traffic don't like secure connections, so you may have to turn off scanning for traffic to *
  • Please also add * to your email whitelist so you can receive emails from Seesaw about your class. All notification emails come from IP Addresses:,

If you don't have network filters in place or have already whitelisted *, please use our Network Diagnostic tool to send us a report.

Here's how:

  1. Log out of Seesaw
  2. On the app sign in screen, press down on the word "Seesaw" (in the script font) for 5 seconds. This will pop up a network diagnostic tool.
  3. Tap "Network Diagnostics" and then email us the report it creates. Hopefully we can use this info to help you out.
