  1. Add security to email addresses beyond the obfuscate

    Add captcha to the email submission hyperlinks to thwart phishing attempts. Also, display the email address as an image to prevent screen scraping or just show the envelope instead of the email address.

  2. Frequently Viewed Pages App

    I would like to see an app that dynamically displays a top 10? list of pages that are most frequently viewed. It would need to be able to filter out the current page and incorporate some type of scoping mechanism (this section only, this site only, all sites and channels) . This would allow our sites to more dynamically adapt to changing needs throughout the year. (E.g bus routes and registration is more popular at the beginning of the year, graduation information at the end, etc.)

  3. The accordion app should be included in the app package.

    It is a very common feature included in other website software packages with other companies. It is not right to charge a custom app fee for something that is so commonly used.

  4. Search shared apps by name

    Creating shared apps is great, but you have to know what app type and the name to find out. For example, we created a custom menu using the content app. It's not intuitive to open the content app to find OUR shared menu...there are other shared apps that are similar.

    It would be useful to be able to list (and search) all of the shared apps for people to re-use...that way they can easily see what is available to use instead of having to know what's out there and then work to find it.

  5. Google Photo Albums that can be embedded or linked and show the album thumbnail or slideshow.

    Add Google Photo Albums link recognition that is similar to YouTube, that can automatically display a linked album with the album thumbnail and title, or that will embed a working slideshow using embed code.

  6. file library

    Uploading the same file to a website multiple times is a recipe for disaster. Please update the File Library App to accept files that are already on the website.

  7. Revise Embed Code App Instructions

    Add the suggestion about making sure the url is secure if the code doesn't work. Changing http to https usually solves the problem. That's a simple change.

  8. Assignments App Calendar events don't sync to Google Calendar

    The ability to add assignments via the Assignments App to the Calendar is great, but those "locked" items do not sync to a Google Calendar for that same Calendar App. It would be great if all calendar events synced.

  9. Headlines and Features App


    1. Date and time are important information when looking at Headlines. Please add a date stamp.


    2. When adding an EXISTING photo, it is pretty difficult to sort through all of the thumbnails to find the photo you are looking for. A larger window and different view options, such as file name would be helpful as well as being able to sort by upload date.


    3. Changing a files name in "Files and Folders" breaks the link. Please correct this.


    4. Being able to tell to which headline a photo is linked would be pretty amazing!

  10. Add a link to the Google Drive folder in the Google Folder App

    Include a clickable link to view the folder that you have specified within the App in Site Manager and provide the option to show on the frontend as well so that it's easy to jump into the Google Drive folder in a new window.

  11. App for visitors to send in photos.

    A way for parents and/or community members to submit photos to the website. Then the site manager could use them on the website or for other projects like their school yearbook.

  12. Customize App Default Settings

    It would be nice to be able to customize and set our own app default settings. The defaults WCM has chosen aren't always appropriate for me, so I spend lots of time constantly picking "Show App name on my page," or unchecking "display bullet". If we could set those defaults ourselves, that would help tremendously -- a huge time saver and keep all site pages looking the same.

  13. Document Viewer needs adjusting

    Since the last update Word Documents are no longer previewing in the document viewer. The document viewer converts all the files to Google docs when expanded. This is also troublesome when putting up fillable PDF forms. Many end users don't know to scroll down below the document and click the "click here" link to download.

  14. Allow users to add title/alt text for links in one step

    Allow users to add title/alt text for links in the same window as creating the link - don't require us to create the link, right click, then add the title/alt text. Way too much work - users will not remember to take that extra step.

  15. Please let us see the source code in all the apps

    The apps are not always particularly responsive, and frequently run afoul of web accessibility requirements. The Content app at least allows us to fix the clunky code generated by the app. It would be nice if we could have similar access in ALL the apps. The Table app is almost useless without that feature. I made one minor edit to a cell and now it no longer aligns. If I could see the code, I might be able to fix it.

  18. Hyperlink to the App Showroom when editing a webpage

    It would be helpful to have a "Learn about Apps" hyperlink near the bottom of the "Create New... Apps" section in an Edit window.

    The hyperlink would open a new web browser tab taking the user to Blackboard's App Showroom at https://cerc.blackboard.com/appshowroom

    This would allow for a one-click opportunity to learn more about an App you may want to use when editing a webpage before actually inserting the App into a page (see what it will look like, view the fields it has to offer, look though its PDF Guide for details, etc.)

  19. Q & A App needs some updating.

    Please put all of the questions at the top of the page, and have the Q&A follow at the bottom. See https://il02215044.schoolwires.net/Page/833 for sample of what I mean. That way for a lengthy Q&A the user doesn't need to read through everything, they can just read the questions first and decide which one to click on.
