Instructor Q&A

Close/Open All Submissions in a Folder Simultaneously


My students can have up until the day of a unit test to submit late work, then I go into each assignment and manually lock them out of each one. I would love to be able to lock them all at the same time on the day of a unit test!

    Hi Alaina, 

    You can make all the materials in a folder unavailable simply by unpublishing the entire folder. 

    Do so by clicking the gear icon next to the folder and then selecting Unpublish from the drop-down menu.

    Materials housed in unpublished folders will not be visible to students. In fact, they shouldn't be able to view the folder at all. 

    As this is an existing function within Schoology, I'm going to go ahead and move this post to the Instructor Q&A forum to avoid any confusion. 

    Please let us know if this feature does not fully accomplish what you're looking for.
