  1. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Calendar Sync from Google to Blackboard for current month moving forward

    Right now we have incomplete calendars on our Bb website. The sync feature is completely not functional as it is right now. We have many existing Google Calendars and once we sync them to the Bb site, they should at least sync everything from the current month and all dates moving forward. I have many screenshots and examples and more information in Case #02957817

  7. 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…

  8. Consolidate duplicate events when viewing multiple calendars

    Parents who choose to view multiple school calendars get duplicates of district-wide events (e.g., no school, parent teacher conferences, etc). When parents choose multiple calendars, the duplicate event entries should be consolidated into one. Usually these district-wide events are generated at the district level and then posted to the other calendars.

  10. 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)

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Post to both Calendar and news feed

    You should be able to post a calendar event as well as a news feed event in one shot. I have to post in two places one for the news feed and one for the calendar. My old management system Edline had this feature. Can you please consider.

  14. 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?

  15. Separate Editor Calendar/Homepage Permissions

    It would be nice if permissions separated calendar editors from having access to edit homepage content. For districts that do not allow people to edit content, it would at least be nice for certain privileges to be extended for staff to edit calendar events only (and not other parts of the site).

  16. Ability to Save "Favorite" Locations that are Frequently Used in Calendar

    The ability to save locations and address in the calendar app that you use frequently (ie. schools, district office) and then be able to select from them when creating a new event instead of having to type the info in each time.

  17. Sync Microsoft 365 School simular to the Google Suite

    Many schools are 365 Schools. I would be helpful if the the websites could collaborate/sync with those on-line applications. i.e. Calendar, One Drive and the such.

  19. Optional Calendar view in Upcoming events

    It would be great if you could modify the upcoming events app so that instead of just displaying a list of events it could display a graphical calendar with the option to show up to three months ahead. This would make the app more flexible for additional uses and space saving on home pages. Currently in a Calendar you have a three month graphical view along the side of the page. Why not make it available in the Upcoming Events as well.
