This article is for ADMINISTRATORS and TEACHERS.

In order for your prescribed lists to be “purchase ready” they need to be published and have the correct associated group. To help ensure you don’t miss a step, Engage will provide Alerts in the form of Quality errors. 

This article will explain how to interpret the alerts so that you can finalize your setup correctly.

If you need guidance on setting up your prescribed list see: Setting up prescribed lists

Prescribed lists cannot be published if there is certain information missing such as:

  • Missing: Groups

  • If a certain book is no longer available for sale in your territory

Missing group error on your prescribed lists:

Removed from sale by the publisher or unavailable due to territory restrictions

  • Publishers update their titles on the Snapplify platform frequently both in terms of pricing and availability. This means that a title may become available or unavailable as a result of these updates. You will need to remove this title before publishing your list
  • If a publisher has removed a title from sale, you will need to search for the title again to check if a new edition has been added to the store.
  • To remove the title with the error from the prescribed list, simply click on the red X next to the title
