Scheduling Recurring Activities

I was wondering if there's a way to add a feature that would allow teachers to schedule activities that occur on a consistent, regular basis rather than having to manually schedule activities one at a time each week. I'm giving my students weekly reminders via activities that they are able to click on and join my Zoom class. It would extremely helpful if there was a button that would allow me to have Seesaw make this a recurring post each week at the exact same time to the exact same classes.

  • TO SCHEDULE RECURRING ACTIVITY:

    You have to COPY to a NEW Activity, because you cannot manually schedule the same activity more than once.  Then click on the new date, change the "current time" to 6:00am (or wake up early and schedule everything early in the morning!) 

    Then it only accepts ONE attachment per activity, so I have to actually schedule 2 DIFFERENT Activities, one for reading the pdf and another separate one for writing a response, and pray my families can realize that two different Activities are actually connected. 

    You are actually lucky, I have a recurring activity that happens EVERY DAY all year long!   I am trying to see if the kids can copy and paste the text to create their own new activity, paste it into the Add a New Response?

  • Yes, everybody I have talked to desperately wants this feature, both staff and parents on the other end.  Many specialists (speech therapists, OT, PT, English Language Support, Literacy specialists, etc.) would find this incredibly helpful as we don't have time to go in every week and put in a new Google Meet link for every kid we work with.  The initial "activity" with the Google Meet link gets lost for parents to search back for.  Could you just add it to the "scheduling" function where you could choose "every Tuesday at 1:00" instead of just the one Tuesday on a particular date?

  • Yes please! If anyone in Seesaw is able to create a way for teachers/specialists to schedule an activity and make it recurring (ie: every weekday at 8:00 am) - this would be a tremendous time saver!!

    Please consider having someone work on developing this!

  • This would really help the support staff who have 7 -8 classes each with 4 - 5 groups in each class all at different times of the day and days of the week.

  • This feature should be at the top of the list! So many teachers assign recurring activities. To have to go in and reassign it over and over is really a big waste of time. We have so little time to begin with considering all of the requirements of hybrid and distance learning. It would be much appreciated! Thank you!!

  • Please add this feature! It would be so helpful.

    I am a support teacher who works with young elementary students from multiple classrooms in small groups. I post the same daily activity four days a week to remind students of their small group times and to attach their Zoom link.

    The current process to post all of the schedules individually takes too much of my valuable prep time. This is my current process to post one days worth of activities 

    1) Click Assign on the activity

    2) Click edit students next to one class to find the 2-3 students who need the activity

    3) Repeat step 2 for 3-4 more classes

    5) Select ONE day and ONE time

    6)Click schedule 

    7) repeat steps 1-6 for 5-8 more groups

    And that's just one day. In reality I also have the following steps:

    8) Repeat steps 1-7 for 3 more days of the week

    9) Repeat steps 1-8 each week

    Putting an option in the Assign Activity and Schedule Activity box where I can select multiple dates (either selecting multiple dates on the currently provided calendar, having check boxes next to day names, or having an option to select "post every Monday" etc.) would allow me to reduce that process down to steps 1-6 that I could do ONCE saving so much time. 

    Thank you for considering this request!
