Q. How can I control what Class Visibility settings are in place as the default for classes created in my domain? Can I prevent teachers from making classes visible to everyone on the web?
A. You can adjust the default Class Visibility settings for your domain through the Domain Control area by selecting Manage Domain > Domain Settings, then navigating to the Classes tab.
Adjusting your Class Visibility Default Settings
Please note: These settings are defaults. Adjusting the default setting for your domain will not adjust the setting for previously-created classes. Teachers can always modify these settings in their own classes on a per-class basis.
To adjust the setting that will be applied to all newly-created classes, use the Gear Icon to open the Manage Domain menu, and select Settings.
From the Classes tab, use the New classes will be visible to drop-down menu to select from the following options:
If you have added Parents to your PowerSchoolLearning domain, use the Allow Parents in Rosters option to enable Parents in newly-created classes by default.
Enabling Teachers to Make Classes Publicly Visible
Navigate to the Class Customization Options area of the Domain Settings menu. Checking the box labeled Allow Teachers to make classes publicly visible will allow Teachers to make their classes visible to Anyone on the web.
If unchecked, teachers will not have the option to make their classes publicly available.
Important Note! Unchecking this option after Public classes have been created in your domain will retroactively change the visibility setting for all public classes from "Anyone on the Web" to "Anyone in [Your PowerSchool Learning Domain]." This change cannot be undone.
