End of Year To-Do List for Seesaw Users
Step 1: Archive Your Old Class

  • Tap your profile icon (top left) to choose the class you want to archive.

Step 2: Tell Families About Export Options
  • Connected family members can download a .zip archive of their child's work from the Seesaw website. 
  • Share this link as a Family Announcement in your Seesaw class to tell families how. We'll also email them when you archive your class.
