Sharing and importing class settings

Customizing a class, creating just the right Random Events, deciding the behaviors you want to use, it's a lot of work! You completely set up a class and want to use your settings for another class? Or maybe you really like one of your colleagues' settings? Fear not! Settings can be shared and imported in a snap!

Sharing and importing settings can make the class setup a lot faster, let's see how it works! Learn more about:

Creating a class with existing class settings

One of the simplest way to go about using another class's settings is to import them directly as you're creating your class.

  1. Fully set up one of your classes (or even the Demo Class)
    Note: If you plan on using Health, make sure to get the base class to Chapter 4 and set up behaviors, pledges, and other settings.
  2. On your homepage, click the Create a class (or Create custom class if you have a district or school license)
  3. Enter a class name and select a grade (if you have a district or school license)
  4. Under Class settings click Select
  5. Scroll down the list and find the class you want to import settings from
  6. Click Create my class

Once you're done, you can edit the imported settings independently from the source class to make on-the-spot, class-specific changes.

Importing settings from another class

If you have already created a class and want to import settings from another one of your classes, it's not too late! When you import settings this way, you don't need to import all of your settings either! It's a great way to add Random Events to another class or just change the powers so they match across different classes.

  1. Click Play on your home page for the class you want to import settings to
  2. On the sidebar click the class settings gear icon
  3. Select Import settings
  4. Choose the class you want to import settings from on the list — you can even select an archived class or your Demo Class!
  5. Click Next

You'll then be prompted to review the settings you want to import. Here's how this looks:

1. Back

Return to the class selection.

2. Select/deselect whole category

If you don't want to import a whole category, uncheck this box. Check it again to import these settings.

Example: If you want to import only powers, uncheck Positive and Negative Behaviors, Pledges, Random Events, Game Rules, and Interface.

3. Category name and description

4. Enable or disable overwrite

You can choose to import add these settings to the ones already existing in your class by disabling this option. Enable the overwrite to delete all existing settings in a section and replace them with the ones you're importing.

5. Overwriting warning

In some cases, settings can't be added to your list. For instance, there can only be 9 powers in Classcraft, game rules are sort of an all-or-nothing thing: you can't both need 500 and 1500 Experience Points to level up at the same time.

This symbols indicates that the settings currently existing in your class will be overwritten when you complete the import.

6. Select/deselect specific setting

In some cases, you can decide to import only a few settings from a category, or import all settings but one. A checked setting will be imported to your currently class. Uncheck a setting to indicate you don't want to import it.

Example: You could want to import all of the pledges you created for your class but one your current class does not have the material to complete. Unchecking it at this time will save you from having to delete it later on.

7. View/hide category

Click the arrow to view all of the settings included in a category. Click it again to hide the expanded view.

8. Overwriting confirmation

If you're about to import settings that will overwrite existing settings, you need to confirm this action. Check this box to confirm.

9. Import settings

When you're ready, click Import to finish importing settings in your new class.

If a category is completely empty (such as if there are no behavior settings to import), the whole category will not appear on this list.

Importing settings from another teacher's class

Teachers may share their settings with others either through a URL, email Facebook, or Twitter. To import their settings:

  1. Access the link they send you (either by copy pasting or clicking the link or button)
  2. Select the class you want to import these settings to
  3. Click Next to decide which settings you want to import

  2. In the sidebar, click the class settings gear icon
  3. In the top right corner, click Share settings
  4. Decide which settings you want to share by checking or unchecking whole categories or specific settings (such as specific powers, behaviors, or Random Events)

Other teachers can then import your settings to their classes by following these steps.

With a district or school license, only custom behaviors can be shared this way, not behaviors provided by your school.
