Locking pages

Is there a way to lock the pages in an activity so students can't add blank pages at the end? I have a friend this year who loves to draw and is constantly adding blank pages to draw instead of getting his work done.

    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, similarly, I have a child who always posts videos even when she has completed the task.  It's great but often not needed and takes so long to watch them so a way to disable this would be great.

  • Yes families should not be able to edit ANY ACTIVITY!!!!  Once teacher locks it only teacher should have permission to lock or unlock!!!

  • I agree. I have children who move pages around. Sometimes by mistake so locking them would be great.
