Configuring Apps at the Building Level


Note: This feature is in limited availability. If you’re a system administrator and interested in configuring LTI apps at the building level, reach out to your Schoology representative.

Apps featured in the App Center are typically installed and configured in Schoology at the district level and cannot be configured separately for each school building. However, some LTI Apps require each school or building to have their own access credentials when the license is not distributed at the district level. System Administrators can configure LTI Apps for specific schools in their organization with the following steps:

    Note: If you change the installation settings at the district level, they cannot be changed at the building level.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I install an app for all buildings in my organization and make changes for a specific building?
No, if you are installing an app for all buildings in your organization (from the All Schools view in Organization Apps), no changes can be made at the individual building level. 


If you wish to install an app to all buildings and have different settings for a specific building (for example, install an app for course admins only at the middle school but install for all users at the high school), then you should make those changes within the specific building. Use the All Schools drop-down menu in Organization Apps to switch between different buildings in your organization and make the changes from there.
