Lock, Unlock, or Reset Your Group Code (Teacher)

Your Group Code is the key for students to join a group or create an account. To prevent any unwanted users from joining your Group, Group Codes automatically lock after 14 days of creating a group or resetting the code. If a locked code or old code is used, a request to join the group will be sent to the teacher for their approval. Please read the following instructions to manually lock or unlock a group code.

Note: Teachers can access the Group Code through the third right column or through the Group Settings.

To manually lock a group code:

    • Go to the group's home page, and click the the Group Settings button. Then click the open "Lock" icon to the left of the Group Code.
    • Or, select the down arrow button next to the Group Code in the third right column and select "Lock Group."

To reset a group code without locking it:

    • Go to the group's home page, and click the the Group Settings button. Then click the down arrow to the right of the group code, then click "Reset." 
    • Or, select the down arrow button next to the Group Code in the third right column and select "Reset Code."

To unlock a group code,

    • Go to the group's home page, and click the closed "Lock" icon to the left of the word "LOCKED." This will generate a brand new group code
    • Or, select the down arrow button next to the Group Code in the third right column and select "Unlock Group."

Note: Students can still use locked group codes to join a group, but they will not be joined to the group automatically. The group owner will have to approve their join group request before they are added to the group.
