I have looked at several articles on how to create a group and how you are supposed to disable chat for students. I personally have downloaded the program and have at least one puzzle active. I think that one is supposed to add puzzles into a group for students. However, I am not seeing how to do that. Additionally, I would like non-group chat disable for my students. I looked at a page that had some screen shots, but I don't see how to get to the category "Menu" for example. I will add that I have a group already created.

I want to put together a simple set of instructions so my students can take advantage of this program, and I would appreciate some help!

Okay, I did find how to disable non-group chat within a puzzle. Would that be universal for all my students then? I still have the question on how to assign the puzzle to the group. Do you have to disable chat for all puzzles?

Hi there!

You can find some instructions here: http://fold.it/portal/node/996074 that may help you out. Additionally, it's my understanding that once you turn off chat, it remains off.

Let us know if you have more questions.

I have clicked "disable

I have clicked "disable non-group chat" and restarted the client about 10 times in a row now, and each time the "disable non-group chat" is unselected. Per my district we are not allowed to use technology with students that has something like the global chat feature and they won't approve the software for use unless I can show that it works. Help, please!!
