  1. I suggest you create a way that the Upcoming Events app can draw from a category within a calendar.

    I want to use the Upcoming Events app but have the ability to pick which category I want listed in the upcoming events. As an example, I would use Upcoming Events on the Career Center page, drawing from the existing events on the High School calendar category of Career Center.

  2. Create a calendar feature that tracks room/resource useage

    Can a feature be created that keeps track of rooms/resources to prevent overbooking. For example, rooms used when an event is posted to the distirct calendar?

    Let's say on 05/19 at 2:00 PM Room 212 is used for a meeting. Is there a way for the calendar to "know" that and provide a flag / warning / overbooking notification?

    Can a list / report that be available to print by date and/or by room? For example, all events taking place in Room 212 or the aud or conference room, etc.

  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

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. Copy and Paste Calendar Events

    Sometimes we have events that reoccur but not on any sort of regular basis. The ability to copy and past an event would be a nice time saver.

  7. Option to Bypass Calendar Approval Process

    Need the option to bypass the approval process for adding school events to our district calendar. We would like each site director to be able to automatically add their events to the main calendar without having someone approve them.

  8. Calendar and Announcements should be linked.

    There could be a little check box in calendar to click that would then send the information to announcements. This would alleviate having to insert the same information in two places.

  9. Make Schedule Star "Integration" Complete

    As it stands now, when our Athletic Department wants to import events from Schedule Star into the Atheltic Section Calendar they choose a range of dates to import. When changes are made in Schedule Star (several times a week) then the Athletic Department has to make the changes in Schedule Star AND in the Schoolwires calendar. Please make your Schedule Star "Integration" synchronous and allow your Calendar to synchronize with the Schedule Star information in real time. Otherwise, the "integration" is all but useless.

  10. 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.

  11. Sync School Wires Calendar to External iCAL

    School Wires calendar should have ability to auto sync to external calendars. We have several athletics, teachers, ect that have google or internet calendars. Instead of 1 time import we should be able to point to a internet calendar or ical file online and let it import nightly.

    *Also this would allow syncing between school wires calendars if you have calendars across school wires sites that are not inheritable events.

    Related to Import ICS/iCal files into calendar, just add automated nightly function.

  13. Wait list

    I like the csv file to automate creating calender events. I would like to be able to turn off wait lists for events added via the spreadsheet.
    They create additional manual processes and head aches.

    Potential enhancements:
    Limit the wait list to only one (or at least be ale to control the number on list).
    Have an automated notification at a predetermined number of days before event registration closes to event scheduler and wait listed persons alerting them they have not been given an appointment slot.
    Reminder notification to all event attendee once registration has closed confirming their appointment.

    Currently…

  14. Calendar

    If an event is reoccurring and entered daily for a week, show on the Upcoming events as a single event over time, rather than taking up all of the spaces for the one event that lasts all week

  15. Reacurring Events in Calendar

    I would like to be able to post reacurring events that are random dates. Currently, you do have a choice of weekly, monthly, day of the week. A lot of times events are reacurring, but are random dates throughout the school year. (i.e. professional development classes) Groupwise has a calendar that drops down and you choose all your dates.

  16. Move events to another calendar

    It would be very helpful to be able to change an events calendar location simply by selecting the appropriate calendar from a drop down list, instead of having to delete it and start all over again.

  17. Calendar events - show more event detail when hovering over an event in EACH view. Incidate there is an attachment

    Calendar events - show more event detail when hovering over an event in EACH view. Indicate there is an attachment if you can not show the link to it. Each view (list, week, month, etc) only shows a little information until you click on the event. Seems many will think the only information available is what you see when you hover.

  18. Event Registration Emails

    Currently, event registration emails only get sent to the recipients in the Contact fields when someone registers for an event, not when they unregister. Please generate emails when people unregister from events.

  19. Calendar for Registered Events- Conferences

    In order to make scheduling of Parent Teacher Conferences (and other events) more efficient, my school district attempted using the Schoolwires calendar to tackle this monstrous task. In the past it has taken a clerk up to 400 hours of work to accomplish this, and with Schoolwires this task was successfully accomplished in a fraction of the time. Although I found it has a lot of potential for future use, it needs some minor changes that will make major improvements in the process. Basically what I did was I created 36 registered events for each high school teacher and batch…

  20. 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…
