Groups are a great place to collaborate, as teachers, students, and parents are able to join them. Once you have created a group, you can share the group code for others to join. 

This article includes:

  • How to find your group code
  • How someone joins your group with the group code:
  • How to remove a group code
  • How to set group settings to control student or parent access to a group

How to find your group code:

  1. Once you have Created a Group, go to Groups. (On the iOS App this is at the bottom of the screen, and on the website version of Showbie this is at the top.)
  2. Click on the name of the group from the list, then click on the Person Icon in the top right. If this is a brand new group, and you are the only person in it, your group code will show up on the box that comes up. 
  3. If other people have already joined the group, select Group Settings, and the code will show here. 
  4. You can then share your group code with others for them to join your group. Remember to maintain the security of always share groups and class codes privately. Please do not post them in public spaces. 

How someone joins your group with the group code:

  1. Once you have given out the group code, a teacher, student or parent can join the group by going to Groups in their own account. (On the iOS App this is at the bottom of the screen, and on the website version of Showbie this is at the top.)
  2. They can then click the Wrench Icon and select Join a Group
  3. Here they can type in the group code you gave them to join the group. 

How to remove a group code

Once everyone who needs to be in the group has joined, it is best practice to remove the group code. This ensures your group is secure, so no one else can join. 

  1. Go to Groups and click on the name of the group from the list. (On the iOS App this is at the bottom of the screen, and on the website version of Showbie this is at the top.)
  2. Click on the Person Icon in the top right. 
  3. Select Group Settings. 
  4. Click on the Red X next to the group code to remove the code, and hit Save

How to set group settings to control student or parent access to a group:

To make it so students or parent can or cannot join a particular group:

  1. Go to Groups and click on the name of the group from the list. (On the iOS App this is at the bottom of the screen, and on the website version of Showbie this is at the top.)
  2. Click on the Person Icon in the top right. If this is a brand new group, and you are the only person in it, your group code will show up on the box that comes up. 
  3. If other people have already joined the group, select Group Settings. 
  4. Here you can toggle on/off Parents can Join and Students can Join. Toggled on, green, means that they can join with the group code.
