Reuse a post

This article is for teachers.

You can reuse an announcement, assignment, or question from a class. When you reuse a post, you can:

  • Use it in the original class or in a different class.
  • Make copies of any attachments, including rubrics, or add new ones.
  • Modify the post before you publish it.

Before you begin

  • If the post was originally sent to individual students, the post defaults to all students when you reuse it, but you can select individual students again if you want. Learn more
  • You can’t post to individual students across multiple classes. Posts to multiple classes are shared with all students in the classes.
  • If your reused post has a rubric, you can edit the rubric in your new assignment. Your edits don’t affect the rubric in the original assignment. 
  • You can reuse assignments with rubrics on the web and mobile versions of Classroom.
  • On the web version of Classroom, you can edit the rubric in the new assignment. Your edits don't affect the original assignment. Learn more
