You may have noticed a new name and logo around our family of activity builders for teachers––BrightSprout! We're really excited about this new chapter and its benefits.
Don't worry, we haven't changed ownership or anything about our builders. Now, we're just making a few behind-the-scenes improvements. These changes make it smoother and easier for educators to sign up and use our sites.
Read more about the change to BrightSprout below:
What is BrightSprout? What's going on?
BrightSprout is our new name for our collection of classroom activity builders. While My Crossword Maker, My Word Search, My Bingo Maker, My Flashcard Maker, and My Worksheet Maker all run independently, we've made them more connected behind the scenes. The BrighSprout "umbrella" makes it much easier for you to log in, edit, and update your account.
With these improvements, you might also notice a few changes, including:
- Updated URL for each site (the old address still works, too!)
- Single log in (same email and password) across sites
- The ability to log in with Google on all sites
- Easier to update your email and password manually
- Bingo and Flashcards are split into their own builders and have new colors
Over time, we hope you'll see even more great improvements with BrightSprout :)
Why did the address URL change? Why does it have "BrightSprout" in it?
We made some behind-the-scenes changes to unify our sites. Now, you'll see the word "brightsprout" in all of the URLs. We did this to make it easier for people who use multiple sites to log in and manage accounts
How does this change my log in information?
Now, there is a single log-in for all of our sites. This gives you much more control over your account and makes it easier to make changes to things like your email, preferences, password, and plan.
However, do note that you may be required to sign in or create a new password.
If you previously had different passwords for different sites under the same email address (for example, one password for your My Worksheet Maker account and a different password for My Crossword Maker), you will now have the same password for all sites. You may also be asked to create a new password.
My password doesn't work anymore. What should I do?
If you previously had different passwords for different sites under the same email address (for example, one password for your My Worksheet Maker account and a different password for My Crossword Maker), you will now have the same password for all sites.
In some cases, you may need to reset/create a new password.
If you suddenly can't log in anymore, here's what to try:
- Try your password from the other site (for example, try your My Word Search password in My Worksheet Maker)
- If that doesn't work, use the "forgot password" feature to send yourself a reset email
- If that doesn't work, contact support and we'll be happy to help.
How does this change impact my documents?
Not at all. All of your documents will be right where you left them, just as you left them.
How does this change impact my plan or billing information?
Not at all. There are no changes to plan names, amounts, or billing names. Your billing information should look the same as it usually does. If you have any questions our concerns, contact our friendly support team.
Why do Bingo and Flashcards look different?
We made a few cosmetic changes to Bingo and Flashcards. Now, you may see new colors and new logos for these two builders. However, nothing else about the builders have changed. They have the same features and plans, as always.
That's it! As with any website change, there may be a few bumps along the way. If you have any questions or encounter any issues, please contact our support team and we'll be happy to help.
