  3. Allow Backup/Restore to a file of entire site or sections by Site/Subsite Directors or Section editors.

    How about giving the Site Director the ability to export the entire website into a compressed zip file, the Subsite Directors the ability to export their entire subsite into a compressed zip file and a section editor the ability to export their entire section into a compressed zip file. Site and Subsite Directors would also be able to just export sections into a compressed zip file.

    The opposite option of being able to restore these compressed backups would also be necessary. This would give us the ability to keep archives of our Sites and/or sections in case we need to…

  4. Ability to post messages to the Campus Level Summary page for subsite directors

    I noticed that the Schoolwires advertisement images change from time to time on the site summary pages. We would like the ability to post our own images or messages to sub-site directors.

  5. A Parent Teacher Conference Scheduler Module

    Where parents could access and schedule/change/cancel times. Teachers could make appointments for parents without internet access. Teachers could check their shedule in real time and print them out. Could be coordinated with other teachers in the school for those parents that have more than one child with conferences. Tried the Calendar feature, did not work for us.

  6. Password to Protect a Web Page

    Our teachers would like to be able to assign a password to some web pages. They would then share this password with parents and students.

    While we understand that this can be accomplished by the parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, etc. registering...it does cause more work since our Webmaster has to them assign them viewing rights.

  7. Custom Error Pages

    Ability to customize "page not found" and/or other error pages to provide users with proactive assistance to find what they're looking for and troubleshoot browser issues. [ Inspired by an issue we're having with implementation -- many, many people in our communiy have old, cached pages on their computers and have no idea that we have launched a new Website or how to access it even though the URL has not changed. We'd like to customize the error pages -- even if it's just with a link -- to better inform folks of the new site and provide suggestions for…

  8. Search and Replace

    It would be extremely advantageous to have a search and replace feature for times when we have staff changes or no longer offer certain courses, and more. When you have a 5,000 page website, without search and replace, finding a name or title would be extremely time consuming. Frontpage offers search and replace, and we have occasion to use it often enough.

  9. Notification emails should not include password

    I received an automated email that my account profile had been successfully updated (which was correct). The message included both my sign-in name and password. That is a real security risk. Passwords should NEVER be sent via email, especially with the sign-in name in the same message.

  10. Allow RSS feeds from other sites on to Schoolwires pages.

    RSS feeds are available on many of on-line sites such as MS liv, iGoogle, myMSN, etc., At this time the only RSS function we can use is to allow others to RSS our district calendar. Would be GREAT if we could RSS other sites to our Schoolwires pages. Teachers could feed their calendars, we could feed our athletics calendar, teachers could feed news sites onto their pages.

  11. add ability to customize event registration confirmations

    Allow districts to customize the e-mail confirmations that are received when someone registers for an event and also when someone registers but is placed on the waiting list. The ability to have a unique message for both registrations would be helpful

  12. Web Address Mappings Import/Export/Sort/Search

    Web Mappings are incredibly useful, but the management of them is a nightmare. Import, export, search, and sort are critical improvements that would go along way towards making this a truly worthwhile feature.

  13. Add web disclaimer

    I would like to see a check box added to the "create link to outside site" dialog that when checked would pop up a window when the link is clicked to warn the user that they are leaving the school district site and the district is not responsible for content on the following pages.

  14. Move location of "Save" and "Cancel" buttons

    Most Save or Cancel buttons end up "below the fold" when you are working on something so you have to scroll down to save and then scroll down again to cancel to go back. Look at moving their locations, and look at adding a "back" button.

  15. Allow change to time zone

    Currently the time zone is locked as Eastern, so time stamps on Last Modified date, etc are all incorrect. It would be nice if we could adjust the time zone either globally at the site level or for each sub-site (global would be fine for me and probably most customers). I don't know if this is a problem in Synergy or Assist but I can see how it could be problematic in those apps as well.

  16. Provide Traditional FTP Service

    It would be great, if in addition to Centricity, you also provide a traditional FTP/Hosting service. Our students and teachers often use programs like iWeb to create simple websites. We want to encourage that kind of use and learning of technology. However, uploading these to Centricity and making sure all the links work properly afterward is way too complicated for the average elementary student. Because SW now hosts our site, we no longer have an open server where we can upload these files to be viewed by the public. We have our intranet but that's no good when we want…

  17. Eliminate View Website Tab or Site Mgr Button from tab view

    I've observed teachers, who only have editing rights to one section, click the 'view website' tab from within the Site Manager to view their updated pages. When satisfied rather than clicking the 'site manager' tab on the left to return to where they were, they click the 'site manager' button on the right opening up a new site manager application. I've seen them do this repeatedly, hence having over a dozen duplicate windows open. Unfortunately they risk overwriting their edited pages if they were to save the first opened window after the last edited window.

  18. Ability to create Favorite Pages in Site Manager

    It would save a lot of time if you could flag or mark certain pages as "Favorites" in Site Manager. This function would enable you to access frequently updated pages much faster than having to drill down every single time.

  20. Site Manager Favorites Option

    It would be helpful if Site Directors and Sub-Site Directors could create a 'Favorites List' much like the "Choose a quick task" drop down in Site Manager. There are a handful of pages that I frequently access and update. Having to navigate through the entire site/subsite hierarchy is very tedious and cumbersome.
