If allowed by your administrator, you can change the name of your classrooms in Typing Agent. This may be useful in naming your classrooms after your class period, your name, or whatever you prefer!

*Note: If you are syncing with an outside rostering system such as ClassLink or Clever, you will not be able to alter the name of your classroom from within Typing Agent. The person responsible for the naming conventions will need to do that from within the rostering system itself. To help you, we've given you a way to give your classroom a nickname. We show you how to do this at the bottom of this guide.

To change the classroom's name, select the classroom from the menu on the left.


Once in your classroom, hover over the name of your classroom until you see a pencil. Click the pencil.

Now, you can change the name of your classroom. When you're finished, hit Save.

Then, you'll see your new classroom name listed!

How to give your classroom a nickname:

Should you want to give your classroom a nickname, you may do so. Click on the classroom on the left then Settings. You land on the Class Details page. From here, you see the Nickname field where you can write the name you want to use there. Click Update when you're done.

From then on, you may click on a classroom then Class Details and see the nickname you've called this classroom.
