    How do I add a student that has just joined my class to a group already assigned lesson
    • Ms. Allstedt - Okay now Malachi Cisneros who is a student in computer apps period 1 is not showing up - he can launch the app and see the Gettysburg material but it is not assigned to him - how do I edit this

      • StudySync - For some reason, Malachi was identified as inactive in our system for that Group. Did Malachi leave the Group and then come back? Regardless, Malachi has been added back in and delivered the two Gettysburg assignments.
