What is Push Changes?

Push Changes is a Kami feature currently only available in Google Classroom. Push Changes allows teachers to edit the file template and have those changes appear to all student copies of a Kami assignment that they have already assigned, even if the students are already working on them.

Who can use Push Changes?

It is available to be used by Teachers on any Kami assignments created that contain student-copy files. This means non-Kami assignments, view-only, or share one copy files cannot use this feature.

How to use Push Changes

To open the template file in Kami with the Push Changes feature, the Update Work button which is available in a few places.

  1. In Google Classroom, the button can be found around the top-side of the assignment page itself or at the top right-hand side when previewing the assignment template file.

    Assignment page:

    File preview:

    In Canvas - not yet available.

    In Schoology - not yet available.

  2. This will open the template file in the Kami App. Do the changes in the file and then click on the Publish Changes button once it is ready to push those changes to the students-copy files.

When will students see the new changes?

After clicking the Publish Changes button, all the changes that are made will be applied to all students' assignment files straight away. Students who have their assignment file open will see the changes in real-time. Otherwise, they’ll see the changes after refreshing the Kami App tab or the next time they open their assignment file.
