  1. Add fax field to Staff Directory app

    School nurses, guidance, and other staff members provide fax numbers to users so documents such as shot records, etc. can be faxed to the appropriate staff member or office.

  2. Microsoft OneDrive Folder app

    Many schools support multiple cloud services i.e. Microsoft O365 and Google GSuite. It would be nice if Schoolwires would develop a OneDrive app as they did for Google. In this day and age you should be developing features for both cloud services.

  3. Ability to modify input fields in Staff Directory App

    We would like the ability to modify the text that currently says "View Website" when we input a URL. For example, we might prefer this to say, "View Bio."

  4. Add the ability to have a thumbnail image as part of the Link Library and File Library

    You really need to add the ability to add a thumbnail or accent image to the Link Librbayr and File Library apps. Especially as we are moving to adaptive content and the flex editor is not adaptive.

  5. Add find and replace option when working in code view on a page

    Content App

    It would be hugely helpful to have a find and replace function that could be used in code/html window. I have a page with maybe a hundred archived links that are full urls, and I need to change them all, but just the domain part. I end up copying all the code into dreamweaver, doing what I need then pasting it back into the code window.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.)

  10. Allow simple Slideshow display throughout the template

    Only on the homepage can you show a slideshow without the ribbon of thumbnails below. Can you allow an option to display slideshows throughout the site to simply rotate through slideshow images (without the black background and thumbnails beneath)? That way, we could rotate images on admission pages, or to display text-only messages...

  11. Fix the "clear formatting" option

    In the content app, if I have text that was either pasted from Microsoft Word or that migrated from an old site (in our case, SchoolWorld), it comes with formatting that is not accessibility-compliant. I am trying to use the Clear Formatting option and it does nothing. The HTML code remains the same before and after I click the toolbar icon. We really could use this feature to work properly!

  12. Increase size of editor window for Embed Code and simliar (New Page Editor)

    In the new Page Editor (as of 2.18), when you edit apps like the Embed Code, you get a window over only the add apps portion of the screen.
    On smaller screens, this can insufferably tiny and frustrating to edit! Could we make that so that could open like the Content app editor, or at least be resizable?

  13. Ability to reorganize entries in Staff Directory App with drag-and-drop capabilities

    We would like the ability to reorganize entries with drag and drop functionality. This way, Department leaders/section heads can be listed first.

  14. More table app options

    I just used the table app for the first time, and it's pretty cool. However, I found some limitations that I really wasn't expecting. There doesn't seem to be any way to merge cells, customize borders, adjust size, change cell or text color, and so on. It'd be cool to be able to do all that.

    And I reckon that a lot of those options might not be available because of the app's Set Table Options doing all the heavy lifting to keep things responsive, but maybe you could add some more customization in there.

  15. More options to sort Article Library

    It would be nice to be able to automatically sort articles by date. Currently we can sort alphabetically or drag & drop (If the list is long the drag & drop can be tedious.)

  16. Content Accordion App

    Please add the option to display a line between items in the Content Accordion App. If you have a lot of items, they tend to start running together, and a line separating them would be much clearer to the reader.

  17. 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!

  18. 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.

  19. set the amount of records shown for site shortcuts

    It would be great to have the ability to limit the amount of records shown on a site short cuts app OR have the ability to hide the url portion of the link library app. Either would achieve the same effect. We like the clean look of the site shortcuts app but when sharing it to a page, we'd love to be able to limit the records and add a 'learn more; in a shared instance of the app.

    check out: www.rcsdk12.org and look at the site shortcuts app usage in column D (center) called 'RCSD News Releases'. We'll have…

  20. Frequently Asked Questions feature

    I think there should be an App that provides more functionality for Frequently Asked Questions. This is a very common feature on websites and Blackboard does not have a great solution. They have "work-arounds." But, it seems this is one of the common features of websites - questions and answers. I'd recommend drop-down boxes. Or, the ability to click on the question and have the answer revealed below. The answer could then disappear again with another click on the question.
