Cannot see students projects

Hi Team,
I have a new class with about twenty students that I created about 1-2 weeks ago.
When I open this class I can see some of my students work but not others.
That is if I click a student on the list the student’s projects show up in the box on the right.
If I click another student I cannot see their projects. So we are currently in lockdown and I am chastising my class that only half my students are doing any work.
Now I find out if I log on from the class page to these students accounts (as the student), they do have work.
I have had a similar problem before and the workaround was to open the student’s settings and then press save and the projects would appear, but this no longer works.
Any ideas

No one has any ideas on this?
Would the paid version work better?
