  1. 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.

  2. Add the Day of the Week To Info Displayed When Click On An Event

    Can the Day of the Week be displayed with the information when you click on an individual event on the calendar? So instead of it simply saying, "June 18, 2018" can it say. "Monday, June 18, 2018"

  3. Adding Calendar Events

    Allow Calendar events to be put in by Period number rather than by time and show the Period numbers in chronological order, i.e., Per 1 - Smith, Per 3 - Jones. Events can be added this way currently, but they often do not show in chronological order. This is very helpful for librarians, computer lab assistants, and other Special teachers when posting on their Calandars

  5. "All Day" label at the start of an event title prevents quick search for topics/events when using the monthly view.

    As a teacher, I am posting daily assignment updates for my students. It is important that they can read on each day (without opening the event) what we did. Now if a student needs to find what day we completed a particular assignment, they have to search all over the calendar instead of being able to quickly see it in the title on the day it was assigned.

  6. Calender User-Interface Enhancement

    We are striving to push people primarily to the Calendar area of our website to learn about all educational opportunities available, but we need more visual cues to help with user-friendliness.

    We would like to suggest the following:
    - Default calendar to the List view - Be able to see a full month within the List rather than weekly (we're going to encourage customizing their calendar view to see events most relevant to them and the weekly view will be annoying because they'll only see one, if that, per week)
    - Add a small thumbnail image next to the event…

  7. Allow Calendar Event Categories from master calendar to auto populate to sub calendars

    It would be nice to have a calendar entry from the main calendar to auto populate to a sub calendar. For example, if I put in an athletic event in the main calendar (and give it the appropriate Athletic Event Calendar), it should auto appear on the Athletics calendar. This is important, especially when uploading mass events, since right now I would have to manually go into each event to manual push those to the calendar.

  8. Give the ability to track where a calendar event originated from.

    Scenario: Someone shares a calendar event with you to put on your calendar. You accept the calendar event. 3 weeks later you notice the calendar event is incorrect, but you can't change the event because it's locked for edits. The other user created the event and they are the owner, so no luck in editing the event.

    I suggest you put a tooltip, or something of that nature, when you hover over that shared calendar event that appears on your calendar while you're in Site Manager. This will allow you to contact the originator of the event and have them…

  10. Bump all event dates forward with one click

    Teachers use calendars to show the scheduling of certain class events. When we have unexpected days off (such as for weather), we need to bump those calendar dates forward, because our entire school schedule moves forward a day. Doing this manually takes forever! Would love a "day off" feature that would automatically move every event to the next weekday.

  11. Combined Calendar - Bring it to WCM!

    Having an integrated homework calendar is essential for our small school. On Edline, the Combined Calendar was the most accessed feature by both teachers and parents. Teachers used it to post their assignments; parents used it to retrieve assignments on a weekly basis. In WCM, we are using the Stream to replace the Combined Calendar. While it 'works', it's not as user friendly to either teachers or students/parents for accessing their assignments. Can the various calendars that are part of WCM be configured to replicate the Combined Calendar from Edline?

  12. When importing events to the calendar using a csv file add the option to use the calendar collections feature.

    When you upload an event to the calendar you can use the calendar collections feature to push the event to the correct calendars. This option is not available to you uploading with a csv. It would be nice if this were an option.

  13. Would like to be able to edit the location on recurring calendar events.

    Would like to be able to edit the location on recurring calendar events. Currently you can "edit an occurrence" and only change the time and date. We have monthly board meetings that always occur on same day of the month and same time but rotate locations. It seems silly that you don't have access to all features of an event when you are requesting to edit one event in a series (like on Google calendar)

  14. Notes for the Calendar

    Our food service program is required (by law) to provide certain notes on any published (digital or printed) calendar menus. These are state and federal requirements. They MUST include that they are an equal opportunity employer, the price for each meal, and the fact that a salad bar is available daily. We will potentially be transitioning from Edline to WCM soon and this has been one of our pain points with the calendar on Edline. It looks like the WCM calendar is going to pose the same challenge. We would love the ability to add a general note that is…

  16. Calendar exports

    I have been asked repeatedly if the end user can export calendar items. I know it is doable but the way Blackboard/Schoolwires sets up the export is very hard for the end user to understand. Why can't you simply subscribe to a calendar or export a calendar? Instead you make it tedious and cumbersome by only offering an ical option, when REALLY if you click on ical there are options for all the other calendars to subscribe.

  17. ICAL feeds

    Good Morning Naomi,

    I checked with our engineers regarding the iCal feeds. We are unable to modify the exported information at the moment, but I will be marking this case for review by our Product Development team for review.

    If you have a moment to provide some feedback, I recommend visiting our User Voice page at https://cerc.blackboard.com/wcmideas. This forum is reviewed regularly by our Product Development team, and helps drive their planning for new features and issue resolution. Adding a suggestion or adding a vote to an existing suggestion will also allow you to be notified if the idea…

  18. OPTION TO HIDE/SHOW ATTACHMENTS ON THE CALENDAR

    I would like to have the option on the calendar to hide/show an attachment to the public on an event, allowing only register users or viewers to be able to see the attachment.

  19. Seeing all Teacher Page Calendars in one Calendar

    Parents, faculty, and students want an intuitive and easy way to see each teacher's calendar all in one place. We have attempted this many ways and see no easy way to do it.

  20. Make full-view Calendar Event Titles more readable.

    We need to make these more readable - maybe by removing the three small calendars (option?) on the left and adjusting the font-size this will be readable.
