If you are using the School Sync package, we recommend you only archive manually created classes. You can distinguish between manually created and synced classes by checking for the 'Synced' label on the class.

Where can I find my archived classes?

To access your archived classes, you just need to select the Archived classes tab on the main classes page.

What will I see when I look at an archived class?

Even though classes are archived, you can still access assignment data, insights data, and student data. However, certain actions are no longer available, including:

  • Adding teachers

  • Adding courses

  • Adding students

  • Managing students

  • Creating assignments

    • All these actions will be 'greyed out' in the class making it clear that you can't use them

What will students in the class see when it's archived?

  • Archived classes will not appear on the student Classes page

  • Assignments from archived classes will appear on the student Upcoming assignments & Past assignments pages. Students will be able to complete these as they normally would.

What will other teachers in the class see when I archive a class?

Other teachers who you have invited to the class will see what you see.

The class will appear under Archived classes for them & they can access all the data by going into the class.

Can I restore/unarchive a class?

Yes, you can unarchive a class at any time & regain full functionality within that class by clicking the unarchive class button.

You can also unarchive a class from the archived tab on the classes page by clicking the 3 dots next to the class you wish to restore.

You can find more info on how to do this is here.
