Latest Updates

Improvements to Folders, Profiles and Classes

May 19, 2014

We just launched a bunch of small tweaks that should make folders, profiles and classes on Quizlet a lot more useful for students and teachers. Most of these updates were requests from Quizlet users. We always want to hear more from our users about how we can improve Quizlet, so keep the suggestions coming.

Search your created sets

When we launched folders a few months ago, we combined the search for just your created sets with the search for all sets in your latest activity. Our users have been (politely) asking us to add this back, since it was simpler to have a search for only the sets you created. And so it's now back!

profile-search

You can now search your own created sets or search any user's created sets on their profile page.

search_profile_2

Organize and sort your folders

Adding folders was a great start to make it easier for users to organize their content on Quizlet. With the following updates, we've made it easier to manage the sets in a folder and all your folders.

On a folder page, you can sort by Latest or Alphabetical, search for a set, and remove sets more easily (without needing to click "edit" first).

folder_big

You can also organize all your folders from the "Folders" tab of your profile page.

= folder-tab

Sort this list by Latest or Alphabetical and your preference will be remembered and reflected in the ordering of your folders in the sidebar too.

profile-nav

You can also search for a folder or easily delete folders from this tab.

See your complete study history

Your study history on Quizlet is now more complete since we show not only the modes you've completed but also the modes you've started.

studied

We also updated the design with some nice icons to make it a little more fun.

Manage class members quicker

We improved the layout of the class member list so that it's easier to scan. class

We updated the look of the admin badges and made it easier to remove members.

Find sets with images in seconds

Finally, we added a camera icon to sets that have images to make them easier to spot:

Behind the scenes performance improvements

Along with all these UI updates, we made a lot of backend improvements that should make these pages faster for everyone.

Keep the feedback coming

These improvements were driven by user requests since we launched our folders re-design in December. Please keep giving us feedback on how we can improve Quizlet. We're listening!

    nice thats cool

  3. StudyGirl77 

    That's nice! Pretty amazing technology! Nice going, Quizlet!!! ^_^

  4. jvanheest_ 

    quizlet should make it that only the creator of the class can kick out people and class admins. I think that that would be helpful

  5. Poet_2002 

    Thank you! :)

    So much post XD

  7. AnimationAddict 

    Did Quizlet make it so if you are an admin, you can remove other admins because I had a friend that was in some classes and he removed the admins (he was admin) and basically took over the class

  11. nwalters512 Plus

    I will never understand why the people on this site are so intent on proving that they can count by numbering their comments.

  12. Horrorfan1122 

    Can folders be made in classrooms, if not you should add them, if so how do you do it?

  13. pietcpt Teacher

    You are the best!

  14. jc_da_boss_

  19. jc_da_boss_

  30. amalianc Staff

    @Horrorfan1122 - We don't yet have a way to add folders to classes, though we hope to do this in the future. Thanks for your feedback!

  31. Minnieval 

    nice cool ):

  32. rkunkel 

    that's cool

  33. ALLBOUTDIAMONDS 

    nice that is so cool

  34. cherry_pi 

    cool, thanks a lot

  35. Johnny_Sh 

    I don't like the layout of the class member list because it is very easy to accidentally delete somebody.

  36. jellinger Teacher

    I would like to see all of the scores (and rankings), not just the top 3 scores (and top 10 rankings). I upgraded my account so that I could access the progress of each of my classes. I was disappointed to find that that was all I could access, and that each individuals' progress is not available for me to assess. The data is there... it would be nice to be able to access it. Am I missing something?

  37. kitten143 

    Cool! :)

  38. nneka_love 

    thank you so much! it's MUCh easier. When I had to study my teacher's set she made so many and I was like omg, where do I go?! thanks SO much!

  39. CMDuffee 

    You need to make it where you can drop a class easier....kinda like its easier to delete a folder!!

  40. MADI_DAZI2 

    COOL :)

  41. RAINBOWDASH171 

    That is AWESOME!!

  42. pianosauras 

    Awesome! That's cool! Keep on improving, Quizlet!

  43. lilrayray_ 

    cool quizlet thx

  44. lilrayray_ 

    but tbh IHAVE NO IDEA WAT DIS MEAN

  45. DrewyDecimalSystem 

    Perhaps you should add folders for classes to keep them organized. It would be easy to set up and extremely helpful!

  46. bossman1776 

    Could you please add a way to put math problems on Quizlet. That would be most helpful thanks.

  47. leahml24 

    I still can not demote admin

  48. ile_ana__ 

    I wish it would be google instead of flickr

  49. SSLegend99

  66. frogboy2013 

    cAN WE DO private messages

  67. Tian-Jun_Ye Teacher

    I am in line with what jellinger commented. I am wondering if there is any function that I misused or has not been found out yet?

  68. Johnny_Sh 

    Could you guys at Quizlet please make some type of message board for the class administrators to communicate with the people in the class? It would be very beneficial for me because I won't be bombarded in school the next day about Quizlet.

    Thanks!

  69. teachremion 

    Great job ! Thanks !

  70. wbahn61 

    i don't like how the class lists are so long... i liked them better when they were all across.... you can always make it so that you can right click and make them the admin or remove them from the class

  71. Chewed_Bubblegum 

    Oh, ok! I was a little confused when I first logged on, before I saw that they had an update, but I like the new look! Great job Quizlet!!

  72. Jasmijnvdg 

    Good improvements :)
    But I have a lot of different thinks to put on Quizlet and to organize it it's useful to make different folders for each subject. That is possible, i know that, but when I have more then 5 folders the quick list on the left shows only the latest 4 are shown "and 2 more". Somehow I think this is very annoying. Could you please make it so that you can see up to 10 folders in this list?
    But besides that one flaw, great site!

  73. RachelHibberd Teacher

    Please allow the admin/creator of a group to communicate with individual members of the group. I can't see how to do this and it would be useful from time to time

  74. xXWitchNekoNatXx 

    May I suggest something? In the profiles...just to make things more fun, could you please add polls and fun questions? Just a suggestion, because I find that fun questions and polls make a lot of things more entertaining. I mean, I know Quizlet is a study website, but please take my suggestion in mind!

    ~your friendly user,
    xXWitchNekoNatXx

  75. studyguide3 

    Sweet!

  79. Atah Plus

    Awesome! I've been waiting for a cool feature like this.

  80. Liepard 

    Thanks for the great update!

  81. crazyfurhorses 

    good job quizlet

  82. pianosauras 

    I think a suggestion to improving Quizlet EVEN MORE is to make sets where you can let it be viewable to certain users.
    It's not like, mandatory, but you can keep my suggestion in mind!
    Thanks, pianosauras!

  83. STEELERSRULE1 

    NICE JOB QUIZLET!!!!! YOUR ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

  84. TheDarkKnight_ Plus

    ICH MAG SCHILDKRÖTEN!!! SCHILDKRÖTEN SIND KÜHL!!! UND DANKE QUIZLET!!! SIE SIND DAS BESTE!!!!!

  85. bgontowski Teacher

    Nice changes!! Would love to see some of the new features, such as folders and favorite terms, added to the API as well.

  86. Davidmask Teacher

    WHERE'S MY T-SHIRT?

  87. Leah_Y_S Plus

    Your flipcards should have more options. I'd like to add info on wordclass, case, singular, plural, plural endings to each word I enter in Quizlet.

  88. woodworker01 

    It's a little hard to play space race with definition showing because the term moves so quickly across the screen.

  89. maylett Plus

    Bravo to the sensational Quizlet crew again!!! Your website is fabulous and it just keeps getting better. ★
    Bust free and relax into a beautiful spring weekend 'cause you crazy cats deserve a stylish break… (>‿◠)✌

  90. Globb 

    When is this thing going to be done already?!?!

  91. Globb 

    When is this thing going to be done already?!?!

  92. mesarahme 

    don't ya love modern technology? i don't blame my brother for wanting to be an electrical engineer. :D

  93. flsa1403 Plus

    Olá, eu gostaria que o sistema tivesse a possibilidade de cores nas letras, pois seria interessante grifas com corres diferentes algumas palavras determinantes.
    Obrigada...

  94. MrHill03 

    Being able to drag and drop sets in the order you want them in your class would be great. ... I suppose the best option until then is to number the sets and choose alphabetical order. And of course putting folders into classes would be nice as well.
    Great site and app! Thanks for what you do.
