Instructor Q&A

Cannot Archive Old Course Despite Following Other Solutions


An old class of ours will not archive. We get an error message saying "Internal Error" when trying to archive. I've gone through the help articles on setting a grade period in the past and applying it but unfortunately it still remains not archived. Has anyone else found a solution to this?

    Hi Russel,

    Our team has confirmed this issue is being investigated with a priority of Moderate Impact. This means that we understand archiving courses in Basic accounts is not working fully as intended, but prioritization of this issue is weighted against more urgent issues and other features we are developing.

    In the meantime, there are alternate ways for you to archive your course:

    In the Grade Setup of the basic section, edit grading periods, and add a grading period that has already ended, and the section will automatically archive.

    Adding and removing a grading period from the affected section also allows the section to be manually archived.

    Please let us know if there is new information about this issue that might change the priority. For example, the issue may impact more customers than you originally reported or affect an area of Schoology that makes this more urgent. If we missed something from you or hear back from other Schoology customers about this issue, and the priority changes, we’ll let you know.

    Otherwise, we’ll update you via this thread when the issue is resolved. Thank you for your patience.
