  1. Multiple Google Calendar Integration

    With the fast growing adoption of Google Classrooms and their subsequent connection to an individualized Google Calendar that contains all relevant assignments, the ability to connect more than one Google Calendar to a single SchoolWires calendar would enable teachers who might have multiple Google Classrooms (Various subjects, periods, etc...) to not have to create multiple SchoolWires calendars to display relevant information to their student population.

  2. Import ICS/iCal files into calendar

    This is the most common interchange format for calendar data. Schoolwires calendar needs to support importing from an ICS file.

  3. Be able to import one schoolwires calendar to another schoolwires calendar

    It would make life much easier if I could copy one calendar to another. For example, I type in my district calendar and would like to import that calendar into my sub-sites main page calendars. I wouldn't have to use Google calendar. We can export a calendar, why can't we import that calendar back into another one? Seems strange to not have that ability.

  4. View previous year's calendar

    Please make an option in the drop down menu of the calendar to go to the previous year instead of hitting the back button until you get there. This would be helpful for teachers who want to quickly see events that happened the previous year in their classes and who might want to post the same or similar event again. Thanks.

  6. Add columns to the calendar import to allow full location details and map enabling

    The calendar import can be a great time saver but it needs to allow me to import more fields. I'm an athletic director and manually enter all the winter, spring, fall, sports schedules onto the calendar with location addresses and enable the map feature. I want to use the import but I would have to import my file then go in and edit each calendar entry to add the rest of the location information and enable the map feature. That's a lot of extra work. I would like to include the following columns in my file - location street, city,…

  7. New Calendar view is not useful

    I have received negative feedback from 3 schools in regards to the appearance, or change in appearance, of the Calendar. In the current view the color coded categorization shows up in as a tight band to the left of the event, which is fine, however displaying the time truncates the title of the event and scanning through the calendar to find a sought out item on the calendar quite burdensome and tedious. Can the title be displayed first? Or as a second option each event display in two lines - the top line being the time and 2nd line be…

  8. Event Calendar

    It would be so nice if the calendar did not default back to the present day. I don't know how many times I have been entering an event three months into the year and then realize it had defaulted back to the present day. If I'm entering events in May, it would be nice for the Calendar to stay in May and not take me all the way back to September.

  9. Redesigned Calendar

    Potential problems I've seen:
    When selecting an event on the calendar it creates a border around the day cell. That border stays when scrolling from month to month and back again. It does not disappear until you select a new date. People could find this confusing because it appears that the border signifies the current date.
    When viewing event details it is now a multiple step process. More steps, and you now have to scroll to the top of the page to get back to Month view.
    Category color symbol for an event is very small and makes some color…

  10. Calendar "Contact" and "Website" toggle off

    When syncing a WCM Calendar to a Google Calendar, a link is posted in the Contact area that is not helpful to end-users who may not be members of the Google Calendar or associated Google Classroom. It would be nice to be able to toggle off that Contact content so as not to confuse and frustrate end users. The sync to those calendars is a wonderful thing!

  11. The calendar in it's new form is way less user friendly.

    The way that the calendar looks when I am editing (or how it used to look was so much more user friendly). Right now it is hard for my students to see what I have posted there or get to linked content so they are not using it. This new update has made it so that my time spent on the calendar is wasted because it is not user friendly for them to get to.

    The whole set up has gotten less user friendly than it was previously.

  12. Restore Weekly View in Calendar App

    The weekly view was removed from the public side of calendar app in the May 2018 product release. This was an essential part of my effort to keep school board members, district admin, and campus admin plus all secretaries informed of the weekly happenings.

    Irionically, weekly view is an option in Site Manager.

    I have no idea why this was removed other than support telling me: "Our Product Development team is always attempting to improve the user experience within all of our apps. They made the determination to remove that view based upon their own research and reasoning."

    I would…

  13. Calendar: Connect "Location" to a list of frequently-used locations

    Please consider allowing us to create a 'minibase' with our frequently-used locations specifically for the Calendar? The Location option is a wonderful feature, but we find ourselves not using it because we have to type in the same information over and over and over . . . and over.

    If we could simply select a location from a pre-populated list, we might use this tool more frequently. This is a feature that is included in many low-priced or free web calendar apps, and it should be a part of WCM. You already have a minibase app; connecting one to populate…

  15. Allow more ways to view the calendar on a homepage.

    I would like to control size as well as how much of an event is actually seen without going into the event itself.

  16. Allow System Administrators to edit Calendar events

    Please allow system administrators and District Level calendar administrator the ability to correct all events rather than having to figure out who entered the event and have them correct it.

  17. Calendar events should not render separately from a page's content

    When a page is requested, the calendar events briefly render across the entire page before the remaining contents are displayed. This leads to an annoying user experience as visitors first see a collection of rectangles with the calendar events followed by the page re-building to show its full contents.

  19. Add any time selection on calendar events

    Schools do not operate on five minute increments. The calendar should let you pick the actual time school dismisses, 2:18 p.m., not 2:15 and not 2:20.

  20. Calendar event categories

    We love the interface of the blackboard calendar, and the way you can filter it by category. We would like 2way synch with google calendar to carry category information. For example, all events from a given google calendar would come in to a blackboard with a category set. This way, folks can maintain google calendars that send categorized data to the website.
