This article will teach you how the experiences page works. This includes the numbers that appear in the table and buttons. It also shows you how to sort and filter the information on the table.






Watch First >>>



What You See:

The Experiences Page is meant to show you the big picture of all your learning experiences. All experiences are filed here. You can filter the list by every state of completion,  from planned to completed - including cancelled experiences. You can also filter by date, from as recent as today to as far back as "all of time" in Foundry.


The Data:

The data in the table reflects the total amount of work in the original plan plus any items that were added to the plan. Remember the Work To Do page? The numbers on that page change when you submit work or your teacher checks it in - it reflects the work you still have to do.  

The Experiences page reflects everything you have done, up to this point.  The numbers on this page change only when you or your teacher add work to the experience, or if you expand or shrink the time filter.  


How it works


Status Filter and Time Filter


The Status Filter at left lets you show only experiences of a certain status by clicking a button.If you click the "Completed" button as pictured here, you will see a table with 9 completed projects and all the associated work: journals, logs, evidence, etc. 

The number of projects you see on the button depends on the Time Filter. "All of Time" (as pictured) will show you every experience you have finished, started, are working on, etc. Click the button to see other options.

Select another preset or your own custom setting (by inputting dates). If you select a shorter time filter, for example, "last month", you will see the numbers on each button change, and the time filter will show you a table from a smaller pool of experiences.

Sortable Table Headings


Along the top of the table, below the Experience title text filter at left and the "Create an Experience" button at right, each column header contains an icon button. Clicking the icon will sort the table by the type of item in the column.  The "Experience" button will sort alphabetically by name. The "Due Date" button will sort by calendar date. The "Experience Actions" column is not sortable. All the others will sort largest to smallest or vice versa, by number.   





Cell Data

Click the number, text, date, or the action arrow within any cell to interact with the data. 


Experience (Name)

This opens the experience "workflow", which contains the plan and the work you have submitted. if the project has been evaluated and/or completed, the evaluation data and performance summary are here too. 



This opens a task pop-up, or "modal", which shows all the tasks in their most recent state, even if they are late. You can view and edit each task type or even mark them as complete right in the window. A task will move from "late" or "to do" to "completed." Your teacher will then see the completed task in their Work to Do table, and can then verify it.

Like Tasks, clicking the cell opens a "modal," which will show you all the logs you have completed as part of that particular experience.




Like Logs, clicking the cell opens a modal and shows all the journals you have submitted as part of that particular experience.


You can click an entry to expand and view the content of the journal, and even edit or comment, but that will not change the original submission date. The clip below demonstrates how it works.

Similarly, you can click to open a modal with all the evidence you have uploaded to an experience.

You can review some documents (like the PNG file in the clip below) directly in a viewing window. Others (like the MSWord doc shown below) will download to your desktop and you can open them there.

Files shared in a Google Drive folder will open in the viewer IF you or the viewer have access to the folder and are logged in at the time.

You can also comment in the modal, or click "edit" to return to the evidence upload page and make changes.
