Setting up your classroom is a very quick & easy whether it is your first one or you have done it before. Check all the key steps and tips here.
As you are signing up for ClassTag for the first time, you have an option to create your first class or a demo class. You can select your setting for what parents can do in your class right from here and change it later at any time. By default, parents cannot create activities and announcements on ClassTag.
Please check your timezone. It is detected automatically, but it is always a good idea to take a quick look.
You can always go back to your class settings by clicking "Class Settings" in your left navigation on the computer or click to see 'More' on your phone.
From 'Class Settings' you can assign your classroom to a school and select to be a school leader if you beat everyone else to it. Yes:) If you school already has a school leader that claimed your school on ClassTag you can ask to be invited. They would be able to easily find your classroom if they search by your email address.

If it is that time of the year and you are looking forward to the summer, you can let everyone know that the classroom will be archived and choose to "Graduate This Class". We know it can be a sad moment!
Well, there are very few things as motivating to parents as seeing their own children's smiling faces in your class. Cover photo is a great way to kick things off on the right foot and set the tone! And better yet, if you are using flyers as a way to sign up parents the cover photo would be on them as well! All you need to do is click on the cover photo on your home screen and replace it. That easy!
We have a very tricky mechanism for assigning avatars for your class:) Not really! At this time, we have a default set of letters and numbers that are nothing more than the first letter of your class name. You can play with names if you would like to change it in class settings. And if you really don't like the avatar you've got, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org or in a chat box right from ClassTag.
You can create new classes on ClassTag if you are teaching multiple classes or just looking to create groups that would need a separate communication and scheduling channel. Just click on the top left of your screen to pull a side menu and select "Add New Class" under the list of your existing classes.
Demo Class is a great way to see your real one in action especially if it is the first time you are using ClassTag. You can deactivate a demo class at any time or leave it there for you to experiment with. All you need to do is click "Add New Class" and "Let Me See A Demo" at the bottom of that screen.
