I'm starting to use the new Unified Classroom assignments for online work, but how do you handout a Google Document? When I attached a Google Doc, I only get 'View' as an option and not Handout
Same Here- I followed up with tech support live assist who said the problem is we may not have Gsuite integration which is why we don't have it and need to talk to our admin.
However when I asked tech admin team I was told that
I'm sorry you are experiencing difficulties handing out a Google document! We have received two reports of this issue today. We have found that re-linking Gsuite in the Admin portal of Unified Classroom resolves the issue. I recommend reaching out to a PS Admin to re-link Gsuite. PS Admins are welcome to reach out to PowerSchool Unified Classroom Support for assistance re-linking Gsuite in the Admin portal of UC.
Does this fix the hand out issue or does this allow for the view/edit in google option after students have handed in? I know this was supposed to be part of an update that would allow for teachers to complete it in UC and not have to download - has that happened?
Yes, this should allow the handout option to appear if the Google Domain is linked as well as installing the PowerSchool UC app within the Google Domain.
Teachers can still edit the assignment after a student submits their work.
They can also preview Google Docs within UC now without having to download the file
I'm the PowerSchool and Unified Classroom administrator at my school and I just re-linked it. That does not fix the problem. When sharing a Google Drive file via a new assignment, the only option is view. There are no other choices.
Thank you for this information, Dan!
Can you confirm the PowerSchool Unified Classroom app within the Google Domain has been installed?
No it wasn't. That was not part of our implementation last summer. We were only instructed in the documentation to install the PowerSchoo Learning App from the Google Marketplace. I just installed it and the handout option is now showing up. Thanks.
My administrators were able to relink it and it worked, but the next day it stopped working. When the students go to view the assignment an error pops up saying that a copy cannot be generated. It doesn't matter if its private, shared with the district, or public online. A case has been submitted and I'm told to just talk to the administration about it.
Would really like this feature working ASAP
Thank you for providing further information! The hand-out button should not disappear again. I recommend having PowerSchool Admin within the district reach out to PowerSchool Unified Classroom Support to provide this information. This will allow PowerSchool Unified Classroom Support to view the settings within Unified Classroom with the district.
My admin was able to work with Powerschool to enable it... I know there were some issues on the POwerschool side and it took a little tie to fix, but we are finally good to go. 🙂
