Schedule your Google Classroom Posts

Note: This post contains screenshots from the old version of Google Classroom. This works essentially the same except that you will now go to the Classwork page to click on the “Create” button. In the upper right, click on the arrow to the right of the “Assign” button to choose “Schedule”


If there was any doubt as to if the Google Classroom team listens to teacher requests, today’s new feature update proves that they do! Teachers have been clamoring for, and now can, scheduling Google Classroom assignments.

Multiple Classes

If your assignment is selected to post to multiple classes it will post to all of your classes at the same time. If you want to have the assignment post to each class at separate times you will need to “Reuse post.” Remember to UNCHECK the “Create new copies of all attachments” checkbox. The beauty of using Google Docs is there is only one version and it is always current. Creating copies makes a mess of your Google Drive.
