  1. Staff directory to include a separate fields for a "Bio" and for "Degrees and Certifications" (similar to the Teacher App) : )

    I'd like the staff directory to include a separate fields for a "Bio" and for "Degrees and Certifications" (similar to the Teacher App). Some schools are getting creative on their own by using the "departments" field to do a short bio with education. I will attempt that also but would love a real option.

  2. Photo galleries/minibases in new content editor

    The new content editor needs to allow us to insert code for photo galleries and mini bases. I like the overall look and feel of the new app, but it stripped a lot of functionality away that we used a lot. It is now a very cumbersome process to insert a photo gallery into a headlines section update, for example.

  3. Additional fields in teacher app

    It would very helpful to have the ability to add or have BB add a teacher room number field and a field to insert a link to a teacher website on the About Teacher App.

  4. Embed pdf files in News & Announcements

    It would be very nice to be able to embed pdf files in the body of News & Announcements. Now I have to convert the file to a png image, but some quality is lost.

  6. Sports Module

    Blackboard SchoolWorld has a Sports Module that would be very helpful to be carried over to SchoolWires. The SportsModule in SchoolWorld allows for quick updating of Cancelled Events AND allows visitors to print a complete calendar for a sport without having to do it a month at a time. Please contact your peers on the SchoolWorld side of your company for the complete functionality of this module. When we made our transition from SchoolWorld to SchoolWires not having the features of this module was a major disappointment to our parents, student athletes and staff.

  7. It would be really nice if all apps were accessible and responsive; this should be the standard..

    All school websites should be both accessible and responsive, to ensure we're accommodating all the needs of our staff, families, students, and community members. While a handful of apps are described as responsive and accessible, far too many are not. Those that are not, should be revised and replaced with versions that ensure ADA compliance and allow access from a variety of devices and screen sizes.

  9. App Level editing (Homepage level)

    The ability to allow app level editing for "Headlines & Features" & "announcements" OR shared tags would be extremely instrumental to districts. This would allow a push up/push down w/ shared apps without allowing users unnecessary privileges to an entire homepage (especially @ the district level). This would also allow for more streamlined communications & overall site appearance.

  10. Hide app option when designing a page

    When designing a web page, there are several apps you can use to accomplish a task but they all give you a different look. It would be great to add a hide/unhide (activate/deactivate) button to each app.
    This would allow you to temporary hide the content of an app and observe how the page would look when using another app.

  11. Q & A App Should Allow for Unlimited Characters

    Currently, the question portion of the Q&A app only allows for 100 characters. I would like to suggest that there be no character limit. Some questions can be longer than 100 characters.

  12. When uploading images inside MMG, allow user to pick folder to upload to

    In a multimedia gallery, when you upload an image inside the app, there is no way to pick a folder to upload to. All images upload to the images root. This makes for one large hard to manage directory.

    So I do it in a two step fashion. In tools, upload to the appropriate directory, and then go into MMG, and "use existing image".

    Have the upload inside MMG either allow folder choice, or maybe better, have each MMG have it's own default folder, not at the image root.

  14. Need an app for embedding Java-based widgets we write in-house

    Our primary students have for years used home-grown Java-based apps to practice a list of sight-words tailored especially to building and teacher needs, as well as basic math facts. We could do this in Edline easily enough; why not WCM?

  15. Allow for style changes on the filter name in a minibase

    Currently, the filter name font is much smaller than the font size on my page. Page designs are more aesthetically pleasing when the page elements are consistent in size and style.

  16. School Directory Website Target

    The School Directory app has a place for the website, but it opens the website in the same window when it should really open in a new window. I'd at least like the option to choose your target.

  17. 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.)

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
