Historic Portfolio Data Access for Admins and Teachers

It is easy to browse student portfolios as they grow over time as a Seesaw for Schools administrator and as a Seesaw for Schools teacher! 

Admin Access to Historic Portfolio Data
From the "All Students" tab of your School Dashboard, you can filter a student's portfolio to specific year, classroom or folder, and view work on a calendar. Click on All Students > then search by student name, student ID or use the list to browse > then click on a student name. Use the filters on the left hand side to filter the student portfolio. 

Teacher Access to Prior Years Portfolios 
As a school admin, you need to turn historic data access ON for your teachers.

Step 1 - Enable Teacher Access:

  1. Sign in as an Administrator 
  2. Click in your profile icon
  3. Click on Manage School
  4. Turn 'Teacher Access to Portfolio History' ON
  5. Email teachers to let them know about this tool! 

Once you've enabled historic access, teachers can view prior student work on the Seesaw website. Teachers only have access to the data of students they currently teach.

Step 2 - Send Teachers an Email with Instructions:
