Step 3. (Optional) Edit The Registration

If at any time you want to edit or delete a registration, simply click on the blue pencil icon on the leftmost column of the table for the registration item you want to change.

By default, all new registrations are activated upon creation. There may be an instance where a platform was registered, but you don't want the registration to be active. You can activate/deactivate a registration by clicking on the true/false button on the Active column of the table.

Step 4. Do a test launch

  1. In the Schoology installation, go to a course.
  2. Press the "Add Materials" button.
  3. Select the newly created tool.

  4. If your app uses deep linking, your deep linking content selection screen will appear. If not, give the Activity a name, set any other options to your liking, and click 'Save Changes'
  5. If the setup was successful, you should see the new tool launch successfully.

When using deep linking, Schoology does not correctly set the tool provider when adding the tool. Once the tool link is added to the course, click the gear icon and then 'edit settings'. Change the Tool Provider field back to your tool name and the click 'Save Changes'.
