  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Ability to prioritize all day events. We use cycle days and I would like them listed first on any day.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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"

  12. 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

  14. "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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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?
