No way to make groups?

I am shocked that there is no way to group students within a class, especially when paying the $120 for the super option.  Surely there is a way to easily allow students to be grouped within a class. This is very disappointing. Please make this a #1 priority.  Thank you.

  • Please add this feature! Teachers in hybrid teaching schedules need an easy way to assign different assignments easily to different cohorts of students. The ability to group students would make this possible!

  • Yes! It is frustrating to have to unselect the whole class and then enter each name of students in a group. I often make errors, and student don't have their assignment. Please do this a.s.a.p. to make my life easier!

  • I added a . (period) to my Cohort A kids and left Cohort B as is. To do this, I'm changing the display name (ex Joe becomes .Joe as a Cohort A kid) This way, when I see the alphabetized list my A group is at the top because of the . (period). It will work this way for kids while at school too, their cohort will be grouped accordingly. 

    If there are other workarounds I would love to hear them.

  • Yes, adding a period helps some, but it is still not efficient to have to select students one at a time.  Then have to repeat for each assignment.  I used to enjoy Seesaw, but is definitely is lacking some basic functionality for teachers.  I hope that improvements are made for all users so that my district and students can continue to use this platform.

  • When will the lack of ability to create groups of students be solved?

  • Yes we have guided math and reading groups that we have to search thru all the names each day and send out every day. This would be great

  • We have combination classes and would like students to all be in the glass but then be able to group them by their grade level within the one class so that we can differentiate. PLEASE make this an option ASAP. We need it! Thank you!

  • YES! Even in a "normal" year I differentiate a ton.

  • I too am hoping that creating groups with in our class will soon be an option! It would be a huge time saver and much easier to keep track of students and their progress. I'm shocked this is not yet a feature. Please make this a priority!

  • I agree with my colleagues. Being able to from groups of students to assign different assignments and differentiate will be extremely helpful and time saving.

  • Definitely support this. It's bad enough that I have to schedule all my activities twice (East Day) and (West Day), and I find myself double checking my students lists all the time. Groups would make this much easier.

  • This would be a great addition!! Currently, we have 4 sets of kids and we constantly have to select and unselect students.  This is extremely time consuming and difficult.  Groups would be so much easier and efficient!

  • I have a combo class and need to send out announcements and activities to just my 1st-graders or just my 2nd-graders and their families. Please work on this!

  • I can't believe SeeSaw STILL has not even addressed this issue.  At least tell us WHY you aren't doing this.  I cannot go through the assignment list click by click for every activity, every day.  SeeSaw is giving me carpal tunnel (making the green checkmark activate with the return key would also be a blessing to the wrist tendons) . We will not recommend that our district purchase again next year, as the most basic of features are not present.

  • We have in-person classes and distance only classes.  When sending school wide announcements that are specific to one of these groups, it would be so nice to have a distribution list for each and not have to hand select classes each time.  Please make this feature a priority.
