Edit or Delete a Seating Chart

After you've created a seating chart, you may decide that you need to change the name, add or remove demographic fields, or rearrange the layout of your class. Using the Seating Chart tab, you can change all of the settings and layout options you set when you created the seating chart.

Edit Seating Chart Settings

Using a seating chart's Edit Settings panel, you can change every setting that was available when you created the seating chart. You can edit the seating chart's name, the teacher's position, the seat arrangement grid's size and order, the visible demographic fields, and the arrangement of students within the grid.

To edit the settings of a seating chart, do the following:

  1. Click Attendance > Seating Chart on the side navigation menu, or click Seating Chart Icon, and then click the Seating Chart tab.
  2. In the Seating Chart drop-down list box, click the seating chart you want to edit.
  3. Next to Seating Chart, at the top of the tab, click Edit.
  4. In Editing Seating Chart mode, do any of the following:

    • To rename the seating chart, click Rename.
    • To rename the seating chart, arrange the seats and students, and choose which demographic fields to show, click Settings.

      The Edit Settings panel is the same as the Add New Seating Chart panel. For more information on these settings see Create a Seating Chart.

  5. To save your changes, do either of the following:

    • To save your changes to the current seating chart, click Save.
    • To save your changes as a new seating chart or to another existing seating chart, click Save As.

Edit Student Locations in the Grid

If you move your students' seats during the school year, you can update your seating chart to reflect those changes. You can make these changes manually so that you don't have to follow the preset arrangement types provided in Seating Chart Settings.

To rearrange students in the seating chart grid, do the following:

  1. Click Attendance > Seating Chart on the side navigation menu, or click Seating Chart Icon, and then click the Seating Chart tab.
  2. In the Seating Chart drop-down list, click the seating chart you want to edit.
  3. Next to Seating Chart, at the top of the tab, click Edit.
  4. In Editing Seating Chart mode, do any of the following:
