What’s the difference between “moving” and “copying” a worksheet?

When “moving” a worksheet from a folder, you will not keep the copy in the original folder. “Copying” allows you to have a copy of the worksheet in both folders. When you're organizing worksheets into your custom folders remember that you can't "move" a worksheet from our default categories.  You can only copy them. This ensures that you always have a back-up copy in the library.

Here’s a video to show the difference between “moving” and “copying” a worksheet.

Can I assign worksheets to more than 1 student at a time?

Yes. You may assign worksheets to multiple students at a time.

How do I assign worksheets to students?

I just moved/copied a worksheet into a folder but the number for the folder hasn’t changed. Why?

It’s probably that you have already moved/copied the worksheet into that folder. The system will not duplicate the worksheet in the folders.

Why should I “like” a worksheet?

Liking a worksheet in our iOS app allows you to have access to them offline. This functionality is only available from our iOS app as the web app requires an internet access to use.

Membership FAQs

Do I need to have an iPad to be a member?

Absolutely not!

We now have a web application that you can access via both iOS and Android devices as well as any internet-connected computers. The web app and the native iOS applications both have a built-in writing tool, which makes printing optional. You can also organize worksheets into custom folders and if you have connected students, you can assign them homework.

You can always be a member and print the worksheets from our website but without the app, you'll be missing out on so many benefits of the SproutBeat® system.  

Why not go ahead and download the iOS app or login to https://app.sproutbeat.com? We're sure that you will be very excited about what the iPad app can offer you.

Can I request worksheets if I can’t find what I’m looking for?

Currently we have worksheets for a few books in the Piano Pronto® series.
