Locking pages in activity

It would be super helpful if the pages in the activity are locked when they are assigned.  Right now, I have students moving and deleting pages and then they can't figure out how to complete the assignment.

    Hi friends, we've made an assortment of changes here. Please give them a try and let us know what you think. 

    Prevent Page Deletion by Students 

    • Before: Students can delete pages from activities templates. 
    • After: When responding to an activity, students cannot delete pages that are part of the activity template created by teachers. Students are still allowed to delete new pages they create.

    Reduce Accidental Page Reorder 

    • Before: For people on touch devices, scrolling in the Pages menu would accidentally reorder the pages.  
    • After: We’ve adjusted the sensitivity of the reorder action in Pages menu and disabled page reordering on drag gestures to prevent this issue. 

    Reduce Accidental Unlocking 

    • Before: When an object was locked and a student dragged their finger on the screen, we’d show an “Unlock to Move” message. 
    • After: Stop showing the “Unlock to Move” message when something is locked and students touch the screen. This message was prompting students to unlock, when typically teachers want to keep these objects locked. For example: locked background images. 

    We are considering exploring features for different pages types and other controls for teachers to tailor their students experience more when responding to activities. If you want to participate in those conversations, please sign up here: https://forms.gle/TpDG6SsakopmHHfQA

  • I agree that students will go through and delete pages and only do the first page!  It has been a problem with my class. It would be very nice if they couldn't delete pages from an assignment.

  • This is a big problem for our students as well. Teachers in my district would really appreciate this feature!

  • I agree! I've tried to explain to an angry family about the deleting feature when I said a student didn't finish an assignment where they'd deleted pages. 

    I would love to be able to lock adding additional pages as well. Sometimes my littles (I teach K) will go into an assignment and have 20 extra pages. Sometimes they draw on them, sometimes they don't. I'd love to be able to lock that feature.

  • YES, YES, & YES!
    Almost every teacher at my school has asked me about this. It would be wonderful if the feature could be found when clicked on the 3 dots (by duplicate page). Students accidently move pages ALLLL THE TIMEEEE! It is extra stressful when using Seesaw for assessment. Please, please, please add this simple feature!

  • Yes please add a feature that allows teachers to lock the template. I support many teachers at my site and this is something that most of them have concerns about because their students delete pages (some unknowingly, others because they figured out they can). Thanks!
