Announcement to Multiple Classes

Seesaw, 

We would love to see this feature added! Please consider allowing Teachers to add an announcement to multiple classes. (In Activities, you have the option to Assign to multiple classes.) Could that be an option in Announcements? It would really help out our Co-Curricular Teachers who have 35-40 sections of classes. 

Thank you!

    Thank you all for sharing your feedback! Sending announcements to multiple classes is a customer request we are hearing from many teachers, and is something we are tracking closely as we think of product improvements for the messaging and announcements experience.

    For Teachers that also have Administrator access — School Admins can send announcements to multiple classes using the School Announcements feature https://help.seesaw.me/hc/en-us/articles/360044462111-How-do-I-use-Schoolwide-Announcements-.

  • I have 19 classes in Seesaw at the moment--it would be much more time-efficient to be able to send an announcement to all the classes at once rather than open a class, go to announcemnt, paste in the message, send, do it again for another class. Oh, and I'm teaching face 2 face at the same time and I'm sure many other teachers are as well.

  • Please add this feature! I have 67 classes for 5 schools. I am the technology teacher and would love to be able to send one announcement to all my students and their families at one time.

  • This would be fantastic.   I have up to 23 classes and would love to send announcements to all homerooms.  Thank you!  

    Also, please lift the assigning activity limit!  There are times where I'd like to share to all classes and it is frustrating to have to do it multiple times!

  • ANNOUNCEMENTS SHOULD BE ABLE TO BE SENT OUT TO MULTIPLE CLASSES AT ONCE.

    This should absolutely be a feature.  I have multiple classes and one announcement to send out to all my classes.  It wastes so much time having to send this message out multiple times.

    If I can assign an activity to multiple classes I should be able to send an announcement too.  

    PLEASE FIX THIS!

  • This on so many levels! I have been asking for two years to my tech department. She said she has relayed to Seesaw the concern. It is not user friendly to specialist added to all the classes and have to make many posts. It would be great if those posts could go to many classes. Please add this upgrade feature:) thank you! A loyal seesaw user!

  • Yes please! TBH, I never leave announcements because I can't share them with multiple classes. It's such a hassle, and when you have 20 classes, to have to create the announcement 20 times is so time consuming, and extra time is something we DON'T have!

  • Yes! I have 25 classes and at least 2 after school groups, being able to select multiple classes for an annoucement would be helpful. 

    If I have a first grade show, it would be great to send out to all of forst grade reminding them about their costumes etc. . .

  • Yes!  The ability to send an announcement to multiple classes is necessary feature.  It is possible to do this in Google Classroom.  I hope Seesaw will consider adding this feature to its LMS. For teachers (like me) who teach the entire school, this is essential.
