Send messages/post to journals/assign activities to multiple classes

Hi,

I'm a UA teacher, managing 24 Seesaw classes, and often need to send the same messages, posts, or activities to multiple classes. It takes a lot of time, and would be great to create one message/post/assignment and select the classes I want to see it...much like Google Classroom offers....

 

Thanks,

Kristin

  • Music teacher here. I need to send the same thing to a bunch of classes. Would be great if I could do it once and send it to all like I can do with Google Classroom!

  • Yes this would be great for those of us that have multiple sections of the same class!

  • I'm finding the same issue. Is there a function where we can decide which class we want to post messages/assignments/announcements to?

  • Mostly in response to A Tersigni above, but yes, that is correct.

    The issue is, why no ability to do the same thing with an announcement or journal entry? our students are seeing announcements posted in the activity page and they're thinking they have to respond. It makes for more work however we do it. 

    We simply want Seesaw to have the ability to add a single journal announcement to multiple classes at the same time.

  • Our district decided to use SeeSaw as a universal communication tool for our families.  Elementary families, students, and staff are used to it.  Middle and high school students, families, and staff are used to utilizing our SIS (Infinite Campus) and Google Classroom.  In both of those tools, teachers can create a message or assignment once and simply check boxes for every class (students and/or parents/guardians) that they want to send it to. 

    It is extremely difficult and frustrating as a teacher to have to copy and paste, reapply attachments, and go through the entire process for each class separately.  In this time of building the plane while flying (watch video), every moment counts!

    PLEASE add this feature!

  • This feature is absolutely critical. I teach 19 classes from 1st grade through 8th grade. Only 1st and 2nd are in Seesaw (thank goodness). I won't recommend Seesaw to colleagues at other schools because this feature is not available. I need to be able to assign one message along with its links to multiple classes.

  • I have 18 classes and would so appreciate this feature!  It would save an abundance of time.

  • As the librarian at an elementary that uses this across all grade levels as well as virtual this would be an amazing time saver. please add this feature. it would make so much more sense than adding it quickly across all rooms as an assignment, making the students think they need to respond.

  • When you assign an activity, if the classes are in your Seesaw account, it will give you the option to click multiple classes to assign it to.

  • Following!!! I too need the ability to post announcements, videos, etc. across multiple class sections.  I see that it is already possible with assignments.  However, why not with general class announcements?

  • Has there been an answer to this? It would be very helpful to those of us assigned to multiple classes.

  • PLEASE do this! screen-shotting and re-adding links for multiple classes is so tedious!
