Organize your class stream

This page is for teachers. Students go here.

By default, posts in a class stream are arranged by the date and time they’re posted. The most recent post is at the top of the stream. Scheduled and draft posts appear in Saved posts at the top of the stream and are not visible to students. If you added topics to posts, you and your students can filter the stream by topic.

Move a post to the top of the stream
  1. Sign in to Classroom with your G Suite for Education account, which looks like name@myschool.eduLearn more.

  2. Click the class.
  3. On the post, click More More and then Move to top.

    Note: When you move a post to the top of the stream, students get a notification by email or on their mobile devices if they have notifications set up.
