Submit homework from your iPad using drag and drop

If you're using Firefly on an iPad, you can now drag and drop any file into Firefly to attach it to a task. If you've saved your homework on your iPad, you can use the split screen view to show Firefly alongside another app, such as Files. If the other app you're using supports it, you can drag any file straight into a task to immediately send it to your teacher. If you've written an answer in another app, such as the Notes app, you can drag and drop your text into a task to send it as a comment to a teacher. 

If you want to save something from Firefly, such as an image or feedback from your teacher, you can also drag and drop it out of Firefly into another app.

Keep your tasks and homework organised

To help you manage you tasks more intuitively, we've added further options to sort, filter, or mark tasks as done to your task list. This change helps you manage your workload more effectively and prioritise the tasks that are most important.

In this version, we've added the following abilities:

  • You can mark multiple tasks as To Do or Done at the same time.
  • You can sort the task list by due date (earliest first), due date (latest first), set date (earliest first) and set date (latest first). Your most recent sorting selection is remembered when you leaves the task list page.
  • You can filter your task list by more options, including ProgressRead, Marking, Due Date and Set By
  • You now see a badge that indicates when a teacher has asked you to do a task again. 

Keep track of your marks

When you select See all Marks and Feedback on your profile, you now see an improved list of your marks and feedback. Instead of archiving a mark, you can now mark it as read or unread.
