Arrange the order of activities in an activity pack

To arrange the order of activities in an activity pack, please navigate to the My Activities page.

Then, find the activity pack whose order of activities you would like to change. Then, click, hold, drag, and drop the order tool, indicated by the icon with four horizontally stacked lines, to the far left of the name of the activity to move that activity within the activity pack.

This will immediately update the order in which these activities appear in the activity pack in both your Quill account and your students' Quill accounts.


Set a due date for an activity

You can set a due date for the activities in the activity pack and ask your students to complete them in the order of the due dates.

To set a due date, navigate to the My Activities page.

Find the activity pack containing the activities for which you would like to set due dates and click in the Due date fields for each activity.

Clicking in the Due date field for an activity will reveal a calendar, in which you can select a date and time.

Tip πŸ’‘

Setting a due date for an activity is only used for reference and will not remove an activity from students' Quill accounts after the due date.


Set publish date for an activity

When you set a publish date for an activity, the activity will not be available in your students' Quill accounts until the publish date. You can stagger the publish dates of the activities in an activity pack so that students complete the activities in an activity pack in your preferred order.

To set a publish date for an activity after assigning the activity, navigate to the My Activities page.

Then, find the activity pack containing the activity for which you would like to set a publish date and click in the activity's Publish date field.

Clicking in the Publish date field will reveal a calendar, in which you can select a date and time for when you would like the activity to appear in your students' Quill accounts.

View the order of activities as they appear in students' accounts

To confirm how the order of activities in an activity pack appears in a student's account, use the View as student feature to view a student's account.

To use the View as student feature, navigate to the My Classes page.

Then, click on the name of the class in which the student whose account you would like to view is rostered.

Then, click the ellipsis button in the Actions column to the far right of the student's name and click the View as student option from the dropdown menu to view that student's account.
