In this article, we will walk through the different pages and functionalities of the FeedbackFruits toolpicker.
When starting to use FeedbackFruits through an LMS, the first screen to open up is our toolpicker. In the toolpicker you can find different options to create FeedbackFruits activities, both from scratch and from a previously created activity.
The toolpicker is composed by six different pages:
Templates by institution
You can browse through these by clicking on their icons on the navigation sidebar on the left side of the screen or via the homepage. At the top of the toolpicker, you can also use the search bar to search for any activity, template or tool just by typing its name there.
In the next sections, we will dive into each of the toolpicker pages and their possibilities.
When opening FeedbackFruits, the toolpicker homepage will be the first page to appear.
Through this page, you can navigate to each part of the toolpicker, such as Shared libraries, Templates, My library, Copy past activities or FeedbackFruits tools. To do so, you can just click on the page name or on the arrow on the right side.
At the bottom of the homepage, some highlighted Help Center articles are easily accessible to help users set up their FeedbackFruits activities.
On the Shared libraries page, users will be able to explore and use the activity templates that they have received from their peers or within their institution.
If you wish to edit your existing templates, you can navigate to the FeedbackFruits Platform by clicking on the top left arrow.
The page will display a list of activities with their titles and descriptions. On the left side, the FeedbackFruits icon will indicate what tool is used for each activity. To use a template, you can just click on it, and it will be ready to use. Users can always modify copied activities before publishing them.

Templates by institution
In this page, you will be able to use activity templates that have been curated and managed by learning designers within your institution.
In the same fashion as the Shared libraries page, if you wish to edit your existing templates, you can navigate to the FeedbackFruits Platform by clicking on the top left arrow.
As well, a list of all the available assignment templates will be displayed. To use a template, you can just click on it, and it will be ready to use. Users can always modify copied activities before publishing them.

For Learning Journeys, on the left side, you will be able to see how many activities are within a journey. If you click on it, you will be able to easily implement them as separate activities within your LMS course.
You can choose to implement individual assignments by clicking 'Implement' next to each activity, or implement the entire journey by clicking on the top blue button named 'Implement' next to the journey title.
On this page, users have access to their own personal templates, created by themselves. They can see when templates were created and where they are stored within their library.
As in the previous pages, users can always edit their templates by navigating to the FeedbackFruits Platform by clicking on the top left arrow. To use a template, users can just click on it, and it will be ready to use. Users can always modify copied activities before publishing them.
To learn more about My library, please read here.
This page is the archive for all the assignments a user has created in the past. These activities don't need to be currently live or published to be stored in here. Within this list, users will see the name of the activity, when it was created, and in which course.
To reuse an assignment, you can just click on it, and the old setup will be copied over. Users can always modify copied activities before publishing them.
On this last page of the toolpicker all the FeedbackFruit tools that are available to a user will be displayed. When clicking on any of these, a brand-new assignment will be created.
