    How can I update my class rosters e. g. when a student has moved away?

    • Christianne Elefante

      Hi Ute,

      Sorry for the late response!

      If you need to remove a student from your class, you can block them! Blocking a student means that they will no longer show up in your class list and they will be unable to rejoin your class until you unblock them. Here’s a guide on how it all works:

      Hope that helps!

      Again, so sorry for the very late response. We were having issues with our notification system but we’ve fixed it now! You can expect much faster responses from us in the future.

      All the best,
      Showbie Support

    Hi I have set up my class and my students are working on assignments in my class wonderfully. I would really like to rename my class though to include my name. Is there any way of doing it without affecting the assignments I have attached to it?
    Thanks heaps,

    How can I delete a class?

    • Christianne Elefante

      Hi there,

      You can delete a class after you’ve archived it.

      We always suggest archiving classes/assignments over deleting it completely just in case you’d like to access the files again. Once you’ve deleted a class, you won’t be able to restore it but if you archive it, you can always bring it back whenever you want.

      Here’s how you can archive a class/assignment – Learn more

      And here’s how you can delete a class/assignment – Learn more

      Hope that helps!

    I have a student who joined my class twice and when he tried to delete the second account after I changed the class code, he cannot get in and I do not know how to add him myself. Please help!!!

    How do I see the join code for a class? I have given out the code and some students joined but I have others who still need to join…

    • Christianne Elefante

      Hi Tammy,

      Thanks for the comment!

      When you open a class, tap on the wrench next to the class name, tap Class Settings, and then you’ll see the class code. We have more detailed instructions in our class code guide: learn more.

      Hope that helps!
