I am unable to share my submission to ATLAS. How do I troubleshoot?

First, have a try at changing internet browsers when using PebblePad and ATLAS (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Brave).

The most common reason for ATLAS workspace and assignment options not showing is interference by an ad blocker in the browser being used. This causes the share modal (pop up window) to not work as it should. The following information can be shared with users if they are having an issue with not seeing workspaces and assignments:

To allow the share modal to function correctly you will need to:

  1. Click on the AdBlock icon in the browser toolbar.
  2. Click Don't run on pages on this site.

  1. Drag the Site slider from left to right.
  2. Click the Exclude button.
