    I agree! We would love to use the amazing Dashboard Update but my team and I are departmentalized and would love to be able to work on one activity and/or Dashboard.

    My team and I are doing the same thing! We each take a subject area and it would be soooo helpful if we could work on one activity together before we assign it to students!

    Has anyone gotten an answer to this question?  My team would like the same option.  Would love to get some feedback from Seesaw

    I have heard of other teaching teams creating a Google Slide Deck for a day and many teachers collaborated within Google Slides by assigning one slide per teacher and then make a copy of the final slide deck to copy into each of their individual Seesaw classes.  Just be sure to hit "Publish to the Web" under File before uploading it as a LINK into a Seesaw activity or Journal post.  Also, be sure that any links within the slide deck (a YouTube link for example) have the sharing permission "anyone with a link" can view as well as the entire slide deck too.  Good luck!

    We did Google slides in the spring (like mentioned above). 

    This year this is what we have come up with.

    I added a new "class" for us teachers.  We are the only ones in the class.  I create an activity in my library and share to the teacher class.  Every teacher in that "class" can edit the activity.  When we are finished, we all share the activity to our personal libraries and then assign it to our personal classes.  It's working.  Definitely not as easy as Google, but we wanted to try and keep the kids in Seesaw.

    It would be fabulous to be able to collaborate on one activity.  In a work around, we're trying a folder labeled, "collaboration" and then assigning the activity to the sample student.  We then each go in to edit the activity from that folder rather than the library.  When ready, it can be reassigned to the class.

    Completely agree with this request.

    Yes!! Here's another person in support of this - I am in a team of 11 teachers, and we divide up each subject. It would be so much easier if we could add collaborators to the activity so that we can all add parts at the same time. Seesaw, please add this feature in the future!

    I agree that this feature would be extremely beneficial. I hope the Seesaw administrators are working on making this a possibility soon!

    i also support seesaw because they have given full support to teachers. Because teachers are our real heroes they teach us about the first stage to all about our life steps. For this my student also written an article also see this:teacher collaboration

    I agree with all comments on this post. Live collaboration would be absolutely powerful!

    At the moment we send the Activity to the school library to be edited by the next teacher then they share their updated version back into the school library (a tweak to the title helps keep track) and so on until the Activity is ready.

    We have also tried editing a Seesaw journal post simultaneously but it doesn't work either so instead we text into our WhatsApp group when we are finished so that the next person can start editing. It's a workaround but not as efficient for workflow compared to the collaborative functionality of Keynote or Google Slides.

    Please find a way that 2 or more teachers can work on the same activity when creating. My co-worker do lots of activities together and would like the option to do it in seesaw instead of creating it out side and bringing it in and finding out a feature does not work.

    Jody-

    The work around my coworkers found was to create an activity (we label it DRAFT ___) that helps to just know that we are both working on it. Assign to sample student. Then go in and create edits. When it is finished. Rename to what you want and save it. Then click on the 3 dots in lower right and select "get student link." A pop-up screen will come up. At the very bottom of that pop-up box and it is tiny, you'll find, "get teacher link" click that. You can then copy and paste the activity into a new tab in your browser and then save it to your library (and the other teacher as well). It's a work around and not the easiest, but it does allow us both to edit an activity. One thing to remember, it's not like Google, the changes are not live, so if both in at the same time, some changes may not be saved.
