I am trying to update a list and have tried numerous times to hover over the list in different places. I cannot seem to get the “edit” button. Please advise.

    Hi, Sorry to hear you are having trouble. Try hitting your F5 key a few times, if you still cannot see the option to edit please give us a call at 800-644-3561 or email us at tlsupport@teacherlists.com.

Is there a way to update multiple lists at once rather than one at a time?

    admin

    Hi Amber,
    You can only update lists one at a time if you are adding or removing items or changing quantities. If the list is staying the same and you just need to update the school year, it is super simple. Just log into your account, hover over the list and click “update to school year 2015-2016”.

    We also just rolled out a new feature – the Power Loader. If you have your updated lists in a Word doc, PDF, Excel file, etc. you can upload them via the Power Loader and we will enter them into TeacherLists for you. You can find out more about how it works here

    Thanks for using TeacherLists!

Is there a way to delete my archived lists that I no longer need to see?

    admin

    Hi Laura,
    Contact us at tlsupport@teacherlists.com with the name of the school and the lists you would like deleted and we will remove them for you.

I am trying to delete a very old teacher list for our school. Lori Metscher no longer works for us. Is this possible? Thank you.

    admin

    Hi Lori,
    We have archived Lori’s list. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.

I am trying to edit my list and the system doesn’t seem to like items it doesn’t already have in the master list. For example, I am trying to enter 1 3″ Binder, and the system rejects it as an error. If I try to edit last year’s item “1 2 or 3 Inch Binder,” it won’t let me edit it. What gives?

How can I print out lists without the add cutting off my lists?

    admin

    Hi Maria,
    The best way to print is to click the yellow print button on the upper right corner of the screen. It will create a PDF file for you.

How do I delete a copy of a list?

I archived lists so I can make changes and reactivate. I can’t figure out how to edit them now that they’re archived. The instructions made it sound simple but I’m having a hard time figuring it out.

Please help:)

I am having difficulty updating emails. We have had some staff changes and I need to fix the emails. Please advise.

When I open my account, it says I have no lists. And the lists that appear when I go to “my schools” is unable to be edited. An updated list for this year was sent, but it still has a teacher and class list that shouldn’t be seen.

    Hi Kimberly,

    Someone from our support team will be in touch with you shortly.

    Thanks,

How do I choose items that will match so parents don’t have to look for each item. When I go into our lists only a few of the item find a match? I also want Ticonderoga pencils as an option not just the generic.

    admin

    Hi Mindy!

    If you go in to edit your list and click “Add Item” at the bottom, you can type any item you want, just make sure to hit “Click here to add this item” at the bottom of the drop down menu. Let me know if this does not answer your question!
