I hope that Google somehow allows for the inclusion of gClass, doctopus, goobric.  

These outstanding tools address teacher needs in a way that classroom (at least from what I am gathering from my research) does not support.  

I guess I'm greedy.  I want the awesomeness of all of these ideas available together. :-)

Can other users who have used this please let me know if they have been able to recreate this issue or have been able to create folders with 75+ entries.
 
Hey all! First time gClassFolders user and loving it. One slight problem: after creating about 50 or so folders, I now get the following error in every status box: "Assignment Folder created, Error with Student email: folder created but not shared." The folders are there, but I must manually share them all with my students. When I do so, I get one of those annoying Word Verification Captchas. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

It is a daily quota.   You can wait 24 hours and resume.

I have not figured out a way around it yet.

Help!  I am getting an error message (TypeError: Cannot find function createDecoratedPopupPanel in object UiApplication) when I try to get the gclass folder hub URL to use with Doctopus.  Any suggestions?

Round 2 of testing.  Very close.   I know that the tutorial and screenshots need to be updated to reflect some recent label changes, but other than that please give it a go.

Installing the add-on using this link will also mean that you get any updates that I publish, and it will also become the official public one once I have approval to share in the add-on gallery.

Okay.  Thanks.  Will do.  Actually, as I think on it, I believe what I have been doing is just using the "move to folder" feature in google to send documents to the "View" folder or the "Edit" folder for a particular class rather than using Doctopus.  I will explore Doctopus some more because of some new sharing activities I am working with.  Thanks again for all your work on this great Add-on. I plan to introduce it to all staff members next year, now that I have successfully used it this year.  Have a great summer!

I just set up some sample classes and ran a "copy" in the student folders.  All went well except nothing came through in the teacher folder.  I have used gClassfolders before and this is the feature I love...all the copied assignments in one folder.   Am I missing something?

Got it.  I guess I get into a process, use it everyday, and then forget which script did which part.

How long till gClassFodlers add-on is available? Should we be concerned about being able to set up new classes here in the UK ready for September? Would it work if I used the beta version?

We don't have Google apps for Education yet at our oldest and gClassFolders has been a life (& back) saver!

Question for +Bjorn Behrendt and/or +Andrew Stillman 

Just ran my first install of Add-on era Doctopus and noticed I was able to create class folder structures similar to gClassFolders.

When gClassFolders gets approval, will there be any inter-operability between the already set up class and new classes set up via gCF (e.g. managing student roster/classes from a gCF spreadsheet)?

Or will the class I've set up via Doctopus exist independently of the later install of gCF? Redundancy confuses me :)

Thanks for all your work!

+Chris Burcin Hmm... Doctopus lets you distribute folders full of stuff and embargo that folder.  It just doesn't let you embargo the top level student folder.

You might have already checked the recent #HOA by +Jennifer Scheffer featuring some of the #Classroom beta testers; if not - my question about gCF comes around the 14 minutes mark: http://bit.ly/JenniferClassroomSneakPeekPost

About this community

This is a community for the gClassFolders script which will automatically create student folders.
 
Just started playing with gCF.  Does a great job of setting up folders, but I can't seem to get the send File button to work.  I can select a file, but then it doesn't do anything from that point.  Something I'm missing?

I am very proud to announce the gClassFolders add-on.    gClassFolders is designed to improve workflow when using Google Apps in the classroom.  The add-on version offers a much more streamline interface for teachers than pre...

Andrew incoorerated some of the folder creation into doctopus. The big difference is that I gCF can do multiple classes and you have more management over them.

Doctopus can import the gCF spreadsheet so you can use both.

+Natalie O'Neil figured out that closing and then reopening the document got the menu to show up.

The link to the add on under Get Started at http://www.gclassfolders.com/ does not seem to be working for me. Is there something I am missing to get gclassfolders started?

Ok, I ran across a "sorting" error on folder creation. The class with the same name (gCF-Test 1) but different periods (10, 11) was connected to the wrong class.

http://imgur.com/blMw0gk I'll send you a link to my roster in private.

Good afternoon!  Just starting to think ahead with existing teacher accounts.  How is the best way to go about cleaning up gClassFolders at the end of the school year?  Is anyone running the script to break sharing rights?  Then just rebuilt the spreadsheet next school year?  Thanks in advance!

I'd guess that is the deal for me as well +Kim Nilsson - moving all the students' Assignment folders into Archive.

Hello! I can't seem to find the add-on in the gallery in Sheets.  Doctopus comes up when I do a search for gclass folders.  I started to use doctopus, but would rather use gclass.  Please help, thanks!!!

Unless google has me change something the link on the website http://www.gclassfolders.com will be the same as the add-on version.
