Lock Pages

I also would like to be able to lock pages in place once an activity has been created. I have students who inadvertently move the pages around, which can make the activity impossible for them to complete. I also have students who delete slides in an activity that they don't want to do.

    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

  • This would be AMAZING for students who accidentally delete pages and those who do it on purpose!

  • Yes, please! Between kids deleting pages on accident or purpose, and them moving around the pages, it makes things really confusing.
