Weekly Notifications

Please Please PLEASE eliminate the weekly notifications!!! I use Seesaw constantly and already know when parents were active and what work I posted and received in the last week! It is monotonous to go through EVERY one of my 43 classes to tap notifications to see these same notes for every class in order to make the red notification circles disappear! It is also completely unnecessary to have the notification/inbox receive a red circle notification! I can see on my class page when I have work to review. Please eliminate these unnecessary extra clicks, or at least have an option to turn these off. Thank you!!!

  • I agree. If they want us to be able to see data/statistics, maybe there would be a specific link in the teacher account to be able to access that info if we want it. The "This week in Seesaw" notifications are overwhelming when you are a specialist.

  • Absolutely would love to see this gone. I don't need to go into 20 classes and check this every single week.

  • This feature is exhausting. I had to clear 2 notifications this week from all 19 classes. So pointless. I agree that it is a nice feature, but there has to be a way to access it by choice rather than being forced to

  • Yet another thing that shows how hard it is to use Seesaw as a specialist.

  • I would love to disable the weekly notifications. Having multiple classes, working with multiple platforms and communication with parents all keep my email inbox pretty full. I am the lead teacher for 23 music specialists and this is a continuing complaint at our weekly zoom meetings. I would love for my district to continue using the paid version for specialists after the pandemic but teachers would like more control.

  • Our music team just had this conversation, too!  Keeping up with reviewing activities is quite a challenge when you have more than 1,000 spread over 48-70 classes.  We don’t want additional notifications.

  • Please eliminate these notifications. I must keep up with 72 classes. That is 72 wasted notifications and way to many clicks to get through each week. I need less frustration and not more.

  • Please Seesaw!!  Please eliminate these.  It would make it easier to grade and get through work quicker.  Or if you want, ask the person who signs up for seesaw if they want them prior to putting them in each class.  Thank you!

  • Yes, as a specials teacher with 30 classes, I do not need all the notifications, and having the ability to turn more of them on/off as needed would be very helpful.

  • My specialist team also just had this conversation. With 16 classes, we have to go through every Monday and clear these pointless notifications from every class! Please give us the option to turn them off, or put them in our class without triggering a notification in our inbox. We do not need exactly the same two notifications every week in every class.

  • Agree with this thread!!

    Please do give us the option of turning off the notifications about active parents and student posts.  They're a big distraction and not all that helpful!

  • This morning I had 30 emails for all of my classes. It takes time for me to delete these. Plus, I am in those classes daily, so I know what is happening. Please make this with a turn off option.

  • The only result is that I filter ALL my seesaw emails to trash immediately. So, if you wanted me to read anything i won't. I have so many classes that seesaw emails is overwhelming.

  • Agree. I don't need metrics. I already know which parents were active in Seesaw this week. Plus with 25 classes that's an extra 50 notifications per week. Stressful and time-wasting to click through them all.

  • Seesaw, PLEASE create away to disable the "this week" notifications!  When you have class numbers in the double digits it is just too much.

  • May I add another voice begging for this feature to be eliminated, or at least give us the option of whether we want it or not. It's such a waste of time, and time is way too precious these days!

     

     

    And while we're at it, you could also stop reminding me to turn on my push notifications for every single class that I'm a part of. Yet another notification in Seesaw that I don't need clogging up my notifications, and there's a reason I don't want my phone notifying me everytime a student turns on a Seesaw activity or comment - please stop asking.

  • Please allow the option to disable weekly notifications. I have 22 sections and it can get overwhelming at times. I think these notifications have merit for some, but it would be great to have an option to disable when you have several different classes.

  • Please allow specialists to turn this feature off. It takes me quite a bit of time to open and close this alert every single week.

  • When those weekly summaries arrive I need to do many many clicks just to clear the notifications. There should be a setting to disable the reports.
