  1. Flexibility with the on-screen alert notification

    The on-screen, pop-up alert is a great feature of this template, but I would like it to be more flexible. I think it would be useful to be able to choose from various icons that would tell a different story to the site visitor. Instead of it always being a RED EXCLAMATION POINT, we were able to choose icons like a GREEN QUESTION MARK or an ORANGE THOUGHT BUBBLE that allowed us to post messages that are more than just emergency alerts.

  2. Add a link option to the image app.

    It'd be cool if I could post an image with the Image App and supply a link that clicking on the image would take you to. As it stands now I'm having to use the Content app. This isn't a huge deal, but it does seem to be an omission in functionality.

  3. We would like to see better analytics.

    It would be nice to have an analytics tool similar to google analytics.

  4. Success Indication

    Move the black box that pops up to tell you that you've successfully uploaded a picture, saved your information, and so forth. Currently it comes up in the bottom of the screen, and oftentimes obscures a button that I need to get to, and I'll have to wait a few seconds for it to save.

    Also, in the Table App you don't get any indication that you've saved your content.

  5. Create a tool to find what pages link to a specific page.

    For instance, we want to "hide" a specific page but want to see where are there links to that page so I can edit and break the link before hiding.

  6. Secure Search is needed for secured content.

    I've had multiple people reach out to me for search capabilities for secure content. Blackboard has a lot of great features revolving around viewing information based on login access, but the content is never searchable.

    I understand this is due to using a third-party for your search features (Google), but we are moving more content to Wordpress that needs to be searched behind a login. This seems like something that should be built into the platform.

  7. Add the ability to remove or add columns to table app

    After creating a table app it appears that it is impossible to add or remove a column from the app. It would be nice to have that functionality because it would prevent users from having to destroy and re-create the app just to remove a single column or to add a new column.

    There needs to be a way for your system to push an email out to someone about the event queue needing attention.

  11. Allow Site Managers to Control Font

    In order to create an atmosphere that conveys professionalism, I would like to request that Website Managers have control over the fonts available to staff, in particular, Comic Sans. This font is commonly used in elementary school districts, however as a high school district it looks inappropriate for the age group and many times, staff will cover serious subject matters using Comic Sans. Thank you for your time.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

    Use HTTP 301 redirects
    Allow SEO-friendly URLs within site structure (navigation, breadcrumbs, in-page links, etc.)
    Create a sane way to manage SEO-friendly URLs sitewide
    Be less bad at webs

  17. Bring back the "HOW DO I..." tab.

    This was so simple for people to understand. You searched based on your access level. You got a column for readers (articles), viewers (videos) and those that wanted additional resources.

    Did it need some work? Sure, but the "all Blackboard products in one place" approach is really not good. It also doesn't help that you don't have the videos anymore.

  18. Google search while better does not block ads, WCM default search does not provide hot links

    While the Google search engine is much better, it doesn't rank the latest changes at the top so older documents found and no longer active are brought forward in the search (archived and not active policy documents) and the Find It can not search on multiple words. WCM search is very limited in that the links are not hot and searches for policy documents are not recognizable. Searching is a bear!

  19. Allow a start date for On Screen Alerts

    Would like the ability to schedule an On Screen Alert to start at a specific day and time as well as the end time just like articles. We would schedule a reminder that school is closed for example

  20. Web Community Manager needs to be compatible with Chrome OS.

    Currently Chrome OS isn't supported by the Web Community Manager product. As of build 59.0.3071.134, any nested content -- pages, site shortcuts, etc do not display.
