About Schoolwork files
For each of your classes, Schoolwork automatically creates a class folder within the Schoolwork folder in iCloud Drive.
Schoolwork automatically organizes Handout files within your Schoolwork class folder in iCloud Drive. When a teacher shares a file in a Handout, Schoolwork automatically saves the file in a HandoutName folder within your Schoolwork class folder using the following format to name files: FamilyName GivenName - OriginalFilename.ext. For example, if your name is Johnny Appleseed and your teacher shares a file AAA in the Handout ZZZ in your Math class with you, Schoolwork names the file Appleseed Johnny - AAA.ext. The file is stored in a folder with the same name as the Handout, ZZZ, within the Math folder in the Schoolwork folder.
Schoolwork > Math > ZZZ > Appleseed Johnny - AAA.ext
In addition, every student and any other teachers receiving the Handout also see the AAA file in their ZZZ Handout folder in their Math class folder.
When your teacher shares a file using “Each student can edit their own file” or when you submit work to a Handout, Schoolwork saves the file in your HandoutName folder within your Schoolwork class folder, and saves a copy to your teacher’s HandoutName folder. Schoolwork also saves a copy in the HandoutName folder for any other teachers receiving the Handout. Schoolwork names the files:
FamilyName GivenName - OriginalFilename.ext (for a file your teacher shared using “Each student can edit their own file”)
FamilyName GivenName - YYYYMMDD - ActivityName.ext (for a file you submitted to a Handout)
When editing a shared file, confirm all your changes are saved. Schoolwork might overwrite changes if another student or teacher edits a file your teacher shared with you and other students at the same time you edit the file.
Schoolwork doesn’t automatically delete files from iCloud Drive when your teacher deletes a Handout. Instead, Schoolwork allows you to decide when you want to remove your work. Be aware that when you remove a file in iCloud Drive, Schoolwork can’t access or recover the file.
