Limiting Teachers' Available Classrooms

This article is for IT Support and Classroom Administrators.

Configuration and Global Administrators can restrict the classes teachers can see within Classwize by using GroupClass and Provider filters.

Membership & Ownership - Filter by Group


Selecting both Membership and Ownership boxes is not recommended, as it can impact the number of classes displayed on their dashboard.

Determine which classes Teachers can see in Classwize by configuring the Membership and Ownership checkboxes. 

  1. Go to Configuration > Classwize 
  2. Under the Teacher Requirements section, configure one of the following:
Membership Ownership Outcome
Not checked Not checked Teachers see all classrooms. Not recommended for schools with more than 100 active classes to prevent performance issues.
Checked Not checked Membership indicates that teachers must be members of the groups they oversee. Kamar and other LMS/SMS systems typically export groups and teachers to Active Directory in this format.
Not checked Checked Ownership indicates that teachers must be the owners of the groups they oversee. Google, Azure, and Hapara manage ownership in this manner. Therefore, this approach is highly recommended if you belong to a Google or Azure AD school.


Class Filter - Filter by Regex


Class Filters will function when using lowercase and will only apply to LDAP GroupsGoogle Groups, and Azure Groups.

Use Class Filters when you want to prevent teachers from seeing previous years' classes and want to use the same prefix for the new classes.

  1. Go to Configuration > Classwize.
  2. Use the Class Filters field on the Classrooms section to limit the classes teachers can see based on a Regular Expression (Regex). For instance, entering "2021" will display classes with "2021" in their name. Alternatively, entering "2024-c" will show classes such as "2024-classwise" or "2024-class".


Select Providers - Filter by Information Source

You can use the Class Filter to limit teachers to seeing only their classes. For example, see only Google Classes.

  1. Go to Configuration > Classwize.
  2. Scroll down to Classrooms > Class Filter.
  3. Use the Select Providers dropdown to limit which classes a teacher can access.


Classes that are combined and those created locally or manually will always be displayed.. Also, the Providers filter doesn't apply to imported classrooms (CSV), as they are regarded as Local classrooms.
