We understand that teachers may already have their classes added to Google Classroom. Great news! You can now import your Google Classroom roster and add it to your ClassTag account.
Here are the steps how to do this:
1. Click the three lines on the upper left side.
2. Click “+ Add New Class”.
3. Click the “Import Google Classroom” tab.
4. Click “Connect Google Classroom”.
5. Choose the correct email address linked to your Google Classroom.
6. Click “Allow”.
7. Choose the School name (if you’re connected to a school), Grade Level, and Timezone.
8. Click “Select Classroom”.
NOTE: If you choose the school name, like the one we have below), the “timezone” will no longer show up and it will follow the school’s timezone.
9. A list of your Google Classrooms will show up. Click the correct classroom you want to import to ClassTag and click “Import”.
10. The system will create your class and give a message that says “Your classroom is ready. Time to reload and explore”. Click the “Reload” button to proceed.
11. Click “Directory” to review the imported data.
12. The list of Teachers and Students will be shown in the Directory page.
NOTE: A green dot on top of the agent’s profile means that the profile has been imported from a Google Classroom.
13. To add the parent’s contact details, click "+ Add the first guardian" on the right side of the student's name.
14. Enter the parent's email address then click "Send Invitation".
NOTE: If you don’t have the parent’s email address, click “Add in Another Way”, click “Add via Phone” and enter the parent’s mobile number instead.
15. The parent’s email address will now be added to the student and a notification will be sent asking the parent to join the class.
16. Perform the same steps for the other students.
