Syncing with Multiple Teachers in Classroom


When classes with multiple teachers in Classroom attempt to sync a gradebook, we receive an error:


Error: Import unsuccessful: Exception: You are trying to edit a protected cell or object. Please contact the spreadsheet owner to remove protection if you need to edit.

at Classroom Import v2 (GradeBook for Google Sheets and Classroom):295 (updateBook_v2)


Is there something we can amend to the Sheet to affect who can sync the Sheet with the Classroom?

Is the GradeBook shared with all the teachers? That might be the issue.

Yeah, it's shared with all teachers as individuals. I also tried sharing it to a group.

We took a closer look at the error and it appears that some cells are protected for the owner of the spreadsheet only (not editors). It looks like syncing with multiple teachers is not possible at the moment.

  • Is there a way to sort by Topic? For example, if I want to separate math strands in my Gradebook?
  • Is there a way to sync grade categories with the assignment from Classroom to the Gradebook?
  • Newly added Features: GradeBook for Google Sheets and Classroom has a new template, total points! This is a much requested feature as there are no categories, no weighting, just adding up total points to generate a final grade. Google Classroom import is now compatible with all GradeBook types Copy GradeBook feature: now you can keep all your assignments or all your students for use in a new course or new term GradeBook.
