Students inviting Educator to project

I had students create a Project and then invite me to the project. 

CHSwildcats_0-1668113053650.png

Then I have them type my email, however, I do not see anywhere that I was invited.  I look in the Fusion Team administration settings but I don't see their project.  

 

Is this not an option with the education license?  It was super simple last year (2021) I was able to see their work and grade without lots of printing.  They were also able to join my team and this year that option was not available for them.  This is very frustrating.  I would appreciate some help or guidance on how to view student projects.

 

Thank you

@CHSwildcats 

Great question. In January '22 we implemented Folder-Level Projects for Autodesk Education accounts. With Folder-Level Projects you can now control members access at the folder level. You can still invite students to your Team / Project but it's now done via Fusion Team. Here is a link to a document that I wrote that walks through the process: Getting Started with Fusion Team for Education.

 

Does this help?

I came across your tutorial earlier.  This is a very long process to solve the issue, that was once so simple.

If I have this correct...

I have to create the "DES 101" folder and invite all the students by email, & assign their role

Then Create another Class folder, and invite all the students by email again, & assign their role (Reader)

Then Create another Folder for their Name, and invite them all by email AGAIN, & assign their role (editor)

and from their they can create folders per the assignments given. (BTW each time I invite them I search for their name, then I also have to type their email in the pop up box. essentially I am typing their emails 6 times per students multiplied by 60 students. )  I am searching their emails/names among previous years of students because there is not a feature to select more than one person at a time to make them inactive members..hint hint )

This sounds like it has solved the issue, however, I have over 60 students to manage and this is ALOT of steps to setup.  I just tried this and the process is incredibly long.  Is there not a simpler way?

I have also tried "option 2" which would be less time consuming, but after students invite me, nothing shows up on my end.  

 

I truly would appreciate your help.

Hi @CHSwildcats 

Thanks for the honest feedback. Folder-Level Projects are constantly being improved and I passed your feedback to the team.

You only need to invite students once into your Fusion Team / Project. Then under the Folder Permissions tab you can select the students from the list. Also on the left column you can select multiple people and assign them the same Role in one operation. With that said, we are work on making this easier with member groups that you can define.

Here is a link to a video that I created that walks through the process. Note that the video is outdated as it first shows inviting members to the Fusion Team. This is no longer needed, as you can now invite members directly into a Project / Folder. video that goes through the steps to setup a Folder-Level Project with roles for a class.

 

If desired, you can still create the legacy Closed project by logging into https://login.autodesk360.com. On the right-side of the screen click

The video is helpful.  I see that I was hitting the invite button between each folder rather than using the Assign role menu at the bottom of the screen.

CHSwildcats_0-1668184732791.png

 

This process is still very time consuming and tedious, clicking back and forth to set up several class periods and students.  Especially when it ranges up to 120 students and the teacher has to create a folder for each student, search for the student and assign the role of editor to each student folder.  

 

It was much quicker to have students add me to their project last year.  Why can I not see the invite when a student does this?  Did this option go away this year? 

 

Is there a way to select several projects at once to archive?  I would like to archive last year's student projects that were shared with me. 

 

As a former industry user that is now an educator, I use the PLTW curriculum that encourages Fusion 360, however, many comments from other educators is the frustration with ease of setting up classes of students.  I have always been a fan of Autodesk products and appreciate that they continue to make improvements to their programs.  I am also thrilled that Autodesk offers the programs for Education.  I hope you will consider some of these concerns to make continued improvements.

Hi @CHSwildcats 

Glad the video helped. Our goal is to keep improving Folder-Level Project and your feedback is appreciated and was sent to the product team. For your questions:

Not seeing the invite

  • If this is the first time you have been invited into the Students' projects, you should receive an email. It's possible that the email went to the spam folder?
  • If you were previously invited into the students' team, I don't believe you'll receive an email.

Archive multiple projects

  • I'm only aware of the method to archive one project at a time in Fusion 360's Data Panel or on Fusion Team. I'll check with the team to see they know of a different process.

Thanks again for your feedback.

Hi @CHSwildcats As Dan said, thanks for the feedback. It's always good to hear about friction points to try to improve processes. For your PLTW colleagues, it would be fantastic if they could share some of their feedback here where it can be taken back to the teams to improve the process. I'm not sure where the PTLW posts are written that you reference. Is it possible for anyone to view them? 

 

I do have a question for you. Are you trying to leave a project or archive a project?

The comments are shared in our PLTW curriculum community that is for paid members to the curriculum.  

 

I don't want to leave the project, I just want to archive it.  I know I can do that one at a time, I just wondered if there is a way to do this by selecting more than one at a time.

Thanks for letting me know where the comments are. I won't be able to access those unfortunately. 

I don't think you can archive a project that you don't own. So if a student invites you to one of their projects, I don't believe you will be able to archive that project since they would be the owner.

@CHSwildcats 

I wanted to follow up about your original question about creating a legacy Closed projects (the old default). In January '22 we added Folder-Level Projects and you can still create the legacy Closed project by logging into https://login.autodesk360.com. On the right-side of the screen click Create Project. 

danbanach_0-1668439748958.png

 

In the the Create Project dialog box, under the Security option, select Closed.

Please let us know if you or other PLTW teachers have any questions about Fusion 360 Projects.

I am still struggling with either inviting students or students inviting me - either way neither of us are receiving an email to accept the invite.   Last  year I was able to have students join my team right away when they set up their accounts.  This year there was no option for them to do that.  "No available teams"    Not sure why this would not work again accept this year I uploaded an excel file to verify everyone and last year I had them verify themselves.  

 

Any suggestions?

As we start assemblies I will need to share files with students.

Hi Joyce,

Can you please tell me the version of Fusion you're running? On the top-right corner of the Fusion 360 screen, click ? and the click About. The top number will be something like 2.0.14793.

Thanks,

-Dan
