Question: How do I add a new assignment?


You can add assignments to your calendar by creating them from scratch, as described on this page, or by copying a previous assignment, as described in the How do I copy an assignment? instructions.

StepInstructionsExample or PictureNotes
1 Log into your website and click Calendar in the list of pages on the left.

Your calendar web page will be displayed.
2 At the top right of your calendar page, click the Add Events drop-down and choose Add Assignments. Even though the current month is shown on your calendar web page, you can add assignments for any month.
3 You will see the Assign Work page.

Fill in the Assign Date, Due Date, and Assignment.

Fill in the optional Category, Max Points, Time To Complete, and Details fields if you want to use them. You can use the rich text controls (bold, italics, lists, indenting, etc.) in the Details box.

You can fill in the Repeat section at the bottom of the page if you want the assignment to appear on the calendar every week or every month until a certain ending date.
The little icon next to the Date field is a pop-up mini-calendar.
4 If you want to attach a downloadable document to the assignment (e.g., a worksheet), click the Attach File button. Specify the file name to display and browse to the location of the file to be uploaded.

Unfortunately, School Loop doesn't let you attach a file that is in your locker; to attach it to an assignment you have to upload it again.

If you change your mind about attaching a file, click the Cancel button instead.
5 If you want to link the assignment to a web page, click the Post Link button and specify the link name and the web page address (URL).

If you want to link to a page on the main Palms website or to one of your own web pages, display that web page in another web browser window, copy the URL into the clipboard, and paste it after you click the Post Link button.

If you change your mind about linking to a web page, click the Cancel button instead.
6 Click the Publish button.

The assignment will appear on your calendar, on the due date. You can hover the cursor over the assignment to see its details (assignment, assigned and due dates, details, etc.)

If you change your mind, click the Cancel button instead.

It's also possible to add assignments using the Assign Work button on your portal page, but we instead recommend that you start from your Calendar page as described above.
