Editing a Single Assignment

  1. After logging into your account, on your calendar or planner view, locate the class that you need to modify, select the assignment, and choose the “Edit” option.
  2. When the “Edit Class” window opens, locate the assignment you want to edit from the list in the “Assignments” tab.
  3. Simply type over the existing assignment to change it to what you would like it to be and then hit Save and Close.

Editing Several Assignments at Once

  1. After logging into your account, locate the class that you need to modify, click on the class title , and choose the “Edit” option.
  2. When the “Edit Class” window opens,  on the “Assignments” tab, select the time frame for the assignments you wish to edit in the “Show:” date range fields, then locate the “Containing:” blank field.
  3. In the “Containing:” field, type a word that is specific to the assignments you want to edit, preferably something they all have in common (ex: lab). This will populate a list of assignments with this term in them. Alternatively, if there is not a common word for the assignments you need to edit, skip this step and continue below.
  4. Next to the “Containing:” field, you will see the “Edit” option with a small drop-down arrow.  Select this and the system will display marked checkboxes beside your assignments. It will also display the “Edit:” fields, “Find this:” and “Replace with:” as well as 2 action buttons, “Replace in Selected Items” and “Delete Selected Items.”
  5. Review the checked assignments and uncheck any that you want to edit. To uncheck all assignments, look for the “And on this day…” option and uncheck the box beside it. Anything you leave marked with a checkmark will be edited in the next step so review carefully.
  6. Complete the “Find this:” and “Replace with:” fields with the information you wish to change.
  7. Once you have made your selections, click the “Replace in Selected Items” button. This will edit all the selected items.
  8. Click the “Save and Close” option in the bottom left of the window.
