Hey @ckunx!

We were not able to reproduce the issue on our end. When we opened up a project, we saw the instructions tab pop up in one of the open panes:

If you’re still seeing issues, would you mind sending us a screen recording (we recommend so we can get a better idea of how things are set up on your end?

I will try again on the accounts of the students who are having issues.

Thank you!

Hi, please refer to the following screenshots:

The instruction tab/icon does not show up for the student at all.

His repl:

This happens for all the projects in the same team, and not just this student. A handful of them are impacted too.

Thank you for the context! I was able to reproduce this and have sent this to the team. Keep an eye out here for any updates.

same here instructions not showing up

Hey all!

We are still looking into this issue. We will let you know as soon as we have an update.

Hi ,

I noticed that the problem effects only new users , I have a class (team) that have an replit user from last year and they all see the , however one new student couldn’t see the file and also another new class couldn’t see the

so I beleive it influence only on new replit users .
Hope that helps a bit

@Tomer2b you are right. I also meet the same issue.
Only affecting the new users.

I just wanted to chime in to say that my students are also experiencing these issues. They are unable to find or open the Instructions. We are also experiencing incredibly long load times for the repls as well.

Same problems here. Extremely slow overall (sometimes never responds), instructions missing (sometimes shows up much later). Very frustrating, especially since your status page implies all is well and no responses from several emails (until finally directed here).

Hey all!

I checked internally and the engineering team is aware of and is tracking this internally. That said, we cannot say for certain when we’ll see an update here, though. Thanks for your patience.

In case anyone needs a workaround :

Just copy the file to the user project folder (where the resides).

this will enable the users to see the file , however if you will update the file after publishing the assignment the users will not see the changes.

Problem description:
I have two labs (exceptions and throws exceptions) that I must complete. They are not including the instructions.

Expected behavior:
Normally, they load with the instructions tab already open. If it is not open, I can hit the + option and select instructions tab. Neither option is available for these labs. Can they be uploaded?

Actual behavior:

Good workaround but not perfect if images are included since the assets folder doesn’t copy over easily along with multiple images used within the instructions.
