Create and edit classes for Schoolwork in Apple School Manager

If you have the right privileges, you can manually create and edit classes for Schoolwork in Apple School Manager.

Apple School Manager automatically creates classes when you connect your Student Information System (SIS) or upload content using SFTP. These classes automatically appear in Schoolwork and you can use Apple School Manager to edit the name. For classes not in your SIS or SFTP upload, like an after-school club, you can manually create a class.

Administrators, Site Managers, People Managers, Managers, and Instructors can create, edit, and delete classes in Apple School Manager.

Manually create a class

  1. Sign in to Apple School Manager.
  2. Click Classes in the sidebar.
  3. Click Add class button.
    Add class screen
  4. In the Class Name field, enter a class name. This name will appear in Schoolwork for teachers and students.
  5. You can optionally enter a course name, class ID, and class number.
  6. Select a location, then add teachers and students.
  7. Click Save.

Edit classes

You can edit classes that you or others manually created at your location.

For classes automatically created from your SIS or SFTP upload, you can edit the class name that is shown in Schoolwork. By default, the class name is copied from the Course Name and Class Number fields defined in SIS or SFTP. 

Delete classes

If a class that is used for Schoolwork is deleted in your SIS or SFTP upload, it will be converted to a manual class in Apple School Manager. This lets teachers preserve or reuse their existing Handouts in new classes.

If you use Apple School Manager to delete a class that was previously used with Schoolwork, all Handouts and data will be deleted.

If a class doesn't appear in Schoolwork

If you don't see the right classes in Schoolwork, try these steps:

  1. Make sure that the classes appear in Apple School Manager.
  2. Go to Settings on your iPad. 
  3. Make sure that you are signed in with the correct Managed Apple ID.

The Schoolwork app is named Classwork in Australia and New Zealand.
