  1. Move Apps Between Pages

    All users to move an app's primary location between pages and to the homepage without needing to move a whole section/page to move the app into a new channel/section.

    Currently, you can share apps to other pages, but then cross functionality (eg posting from the shared page to a news article tab) does not transfer to the new location.

    Allowing apps to fully transfer between pages OR allowing all of the app attributes to edit from new locations would be helpful.

  2. Future Scheduled Indicator

    In apps that allow scheduling of content, since we already have Active, Inactive and Expired, it would be nice to have an indication of items that are scheduled for the future.

  3. User Friendly Translation Function

    Google Translation Function: Add English to the drop down menu or add a more obvious button that says return to English. Users don't know to look for the Show Original button or the X. One user said she wound up shutting down, clearing her browser history including cookies, to get back to English.

  4. Site Shortcuts should have expiration

    Links in the Site Shortcuts apps should have scheduled post and expiration dates like the File Library app. If we need a link posted for a period of time, there is currently no way to expire the link.

  5. Update TinyMCE Content Editor

    Update or allow TinyMCE to use more advanced formats/paragraph styling allowing for better accessibility configuration. This is possible in current versions of TinyMCE or TinyMCE with more unlocked features.

    Currently, all content editor styles import as <span> formats unless edited at the tiny.mce ingestion root. Allowing more advanced formats that pull matching heading, paragraph, and site color styles would allow for consistent accessibility upgrades.

    Rather than locking styles inside of spans, styles could match div, span, heading, etc that would reduce max page nesting, style break down, page load times, etc.

  6. jquery

    Update to a more stable version of jquery that is more optimized for page load. The current jQuery 1.9.1, jQuery UI 1.10.1, and minified jQuery@1.9.1 are nearing end of life.

  7. Headlines & Features App Url link

    In the Headlines & Features app, a Url link is generated. However it is not available if the Start Date is used, and that Start Date has not arrived.

    Customers loved the idea of using the Headlines & Features app to stage an upcoming headline, but they also need the Url link to be active for staging their social media and other publishing that is done to promote accomplishments of the school staff and students.

    This causes a burden on the communication staff. They have been staging information for automatic future publishing to social media and other media outlets.

  8. Move Document Viewer download message to top of document

    Please place the phrase & link "If you are having trouble viewing the document, you may download the document," on the top of the document, not on the bottom. That way, when the document doesn't load, viewers will see the message immediately. When it is on the bottom, it is not as visible (viewers don't scroll down if the doc doesn't populate), and I get angry messages from viewers who think the link is broken.

  9. Delete many pages from section workspace at a time

    Is there a way to delete multiple pages at a time from the section workspace? Or can I only delete them one at a time? In trying to clean up the site, I need to remove many pages as a time.

  10. Chat bot

    It would be great to have a chat bot feature in particular for questions parents might have about registration. The Chat/Web bot could direct them to our registration page for example. Many other sites have this feature. As does Facebook.

  11. Approved Sites and Software App

    Since every school district must meet COPPA and FERPA it would be helpful to have an app specifically for the purpose of creating a searchable list of district approved websites, apps, extensions, plugins. I imagine it would be helpful to include fields for and name, description, icon, main url, privacy policy url, tos url, category, who its approved for or age rating, notes. Additionally it would be helpful to allow for badges like "student privacy pledge signatory" or "clever integrated"

  12. Tabbed Widget: Wrap Tabs

    Currently, the tab widget does not allow for the tabs to wrap if they do not fit in the space. It would be nice if they would wrap otherwise it is only possible to use 3-4 tabs at a time.

  13. Background image

    When i try to change the background image for a page I am working on, it does not change. I have to make a copy of the page entirely. Thanks for your help with this bug.

  14. Tag list not fully viewable when adding record

    Tag list not fully viewable when adding record. The drop down displays but not fully so you don't see a complete list. You have to go into app options and view the tag list if you forget the tag names. That's cumbersome.

  15. Channel Directory Wording

    Make the channel directory wording customizable. The word "directory" can confuse folks looking for the staff directory if they click on the Staff channel.

  16. A LINK FOR HOW TO EDIT A MESSAGE THAT IS WAITING TO GO OUT

    You need to have a quick, easy link to the steps to EDITING a message once you have submitted it to go out. There is this: "If you wish to edit or cancel messages, please do so at least 5 minutes in advance of the scheduled start time to ensure messages are not queued for delivery" but there are no further instructions on HOW to edit a message. A very helpful support person @ Blackboard walked me through the steps. I believe this is an issue that must frequently come up for users - the need to edit a pending…

  17. Staff Directory needs a Title dropdown/search

    It would be nice to be able to sort through staff by their title, but through a dropdown so a selection can be made versus guessing a title.

  18. Adjust size of PDF icon

    When using File Library, the PDF icons are not the same width as the other icons (Word, Excel, etc.) which throws off the left-justified alignment. The Word, Excel, etc. icons appear to all be the same width so it seems that the PDF icon is the outlier and the one that needs to be adjusted. This is literally a 5-minute fix.

  20. Friendly URL/ Permalinks/ Folder Structure URL

    However you want to put it. Please consider how the structure of Blackboard is being built.

    For the District Home Page:
    Main-URL/Section-Name/Page-Name

    For the Campus Home Pages:

    Main-URL/Campus-Site-Name/Section Name/Page-Name

    As a web admin working on 70 different schools sites. That is a lot of "Friendly Links" to make.

    There have been plenty of post on here about this issue ranging back to 2015. They're all just named something slightly different.
