2020 and Beyond: The Roadmap
  • In-Progress Roster Excel (or CSV) upload. By far our most requested feature! Add student names to any roster by uploading a spreadsheet or comma-separated values file.
  • Pin a student to an assigned seat. This feature has been requested to make sure students who require special attention are kept in-place on seating charts, even when the chart is "alphabetized" or "randomized."
