How do I add classes to Hāpara?
Add new rows to the class spreadsheet, and re-load it through the Hāpara Admin Console > Data Loader tab > Manual Load page. Please check Google Drive to ensure that the classroom folders exist before adding students to the class.
Although the Google Drive folder or calendar updates take effect immediately, owing to extensive caching there is a delay between the data load and the classes and students appearing in Hāpara. This currently takes about 30-60 minutes, but we are working to minimize this delay.
How do I move students between classes?
Update the Class Code field in student spreadsheet and reload the student spreadsheet / CSV file - Hāpara will automatically create any new folders needed or reassign folder sharing.
Manually moving students between groups in Google Admin Console does not work - since Hāpara does not maintain a copy of your class roster outside of Google, manual changes to class group membership cannot be detected.
How do I rename a class?
To change the name of a class in Hāpara, simply change the name of the class in your classes spreadsheet and reload the spreadsheet.
How do I rename a subject folder?
For classes where no students have yet been added, update the subject folder name(s) in the classes spreadsheet, and manually remove the old subject folder(s) using the school.apps.owner account.
If the class already has students enrolled, and therefore the students' personal subject folders need to be renamed, please submit a support ticket.
How do I remove a class?
If you'd like to delete a class, please submit a request with our support team. We'd be happy to help remove classes and folders.
If a student leaves your school or your classes that is using Hāpara, you'll need to remove the student from Hāpara. To do so, ensure that the student's ID remains in the student spreadsheet, but remove the student's class codes. Then reload the student spreadsheet. When Hāpara sees that the student is to be added to 'no' classes (i.e. all class codes are blank) the student will be removed from all classes.
Or, you may choose to enable remove students not in uploaded data in the Hāpara Admin Console. When this is enabled, any students that were previously loaded to Hāpara but are not included in the most recent upload will be removed from Hāpara.
