Schoology Release Notes: April 2015

Web

New Feature: Overdue Notifications

Students and their parents may now receive notifications for an item the student didn't submit by its due date.

Enable overdue notifications from your Notifications menu. Select On in the drop-down menu to receive notifications for overdue materials in all courses, or select Custom and choose the courses for which you want overdue notifications.

Overdue notifications display on the right side of the screen; parents may also elect to receive updates via the Parent Email Digest.

Read this article in the Schoology Help Center for more information on overdue notifications.

Bug Fixes

  • Links that are copied and pasted into an Assignment's Create form were not creating active links.
  • Teachers were not receiving email notifications when their notification settings were set to On.
  • When creating an event on the Schoology Calendar, the Start Date was automatically set to the English instead of the Spanish format in Spanish language accounts, preventing some users from being able to create events.
  • The building codes were no longer visible in the Schools drop-down menu on the Import screen when Use Import File was selected.
