Yesterday Google announced the release of a new expansion to the scheduling feature within Google Classroom. The enhanced scheduling feature now allows teachers to schedule an event to post in advance. No longer will you need to schedule assignments or announcements as drafts and later return to post them to your Google Classroom activity stream!
Upon scheduling an assignment/event in Google Classroom, you now have the option to click on the “Assign” button (bottom right) and choose “Schedule” from the drop down menu. You are now able to schedule an event to post by date and time.
Note: If you are sending the same event to multiple classes or at different times, rather than copying the post, simply click “Reuse post.” Uncheck the “Create new copies of all attachments” checkbox and repeat the scheduling process.
