  1. Make Department lines multi-search/multi-category instead of single entry only

    The Department text box has multiple lines but only the first line/words are searchable. A teacher who teaches 7th grade math and science has to have 3 different entries so they show up in the 7th grade department search, the math department search, and the science department search. Each line in the Department box should be searchable.

  2. Make a way to Alphabetize the Contact Us (or staff directory) minibase

    PLEASE make a way to sort the minibase containing the Contact Us information or alphabetize it!! It is ridiculous that the order of entry is the way they show in the user end AND from the admin end it's a nightmare. If someone's data changes or if you need to remove someone you have to search every single entry on every page!!

  3. Make it possible to specify the number of minibase records to display using embed code parameter

    Please make it possible to set a limit in minibase filter embed code for the number of minibase records displayed. (Though this can be done globally in the minibase itself, in some locations I want to display fewer records than the minibase settings -- like on a school's front page, for instance, where there's limited space.) In Twitter feed embed code, for example, they use: data-tweet-limit="2". Something like [$APP ID=40253 Limit="3" props="Field1:2019-2020; Field14:116; Field16:n;"$].

  4. Responsive Minibase Input Fields

    Making Minibase fields more responsive. Many websites are viewed on mobile phones, having the input fields fit the view port would really enhance the app.

  5. Sorteable and Searchable Minibase fields

    I strongly encourage Blackboard to make minibases sorteable by column AND query-able. Our minibase in particular hosts years of documents that must be added to bi-weekly; different webpages show documents by fiscal year but it all is managed in one minibase and is being updated constantly. The Blackboard suggestion to export the minibase, sort, and reimport is unreasonable for a live database.

    This minibase is NOT currently sorteable, which our district feels is a simple and necessary function of any useful database. We also suggest making this information searchable; our current staff directory has a search box in which we…

  6. Allow Minibases to be responsive

    I would love it for minibases layout to allow responsive design. Very difficult to use our staff directory minibase on a phone or tablet.

  7. print styles for staff directory

    It would be great if the styles could be edited to print in a table format when using the custom minibase app. This would eliminate the need to keep multiple files for users to download and print.

  8. Minibase - add a restriction to the search to require at least two letters in name for searching.

    Add a restriction to the search to require at least two letters in name for searching. We have had an uptick in spam (in alpha order) and think requiring additional letters could help. Thank you!

  10. Descending date order Mini Base

    The functionality of the drop down to descending order in the Minibase when using year or any date information would make ease of use for the end user. Please consider this change. Users are frustrated when looking for the current years Agendas and Minutes.

  11. Allow the filter drop down in Minibase to have a set default of "Contains" when requested versus defaulting to "Starts with".

    Looking for the ability to set "Contains" as the default drop down from within the app settings in Minibase. We currently use the minibase to house a lookup tool for seat dedications in our auditorium. Most users are searching based on their last name versus "In honor of James Smith" since they don't remember how the seat name was started. We're looking for them to be able to type "Smith" without having to swap the drop down option each time.

  12. Add the ability to sort a field by DATE (instead of only A-Z or Z-A alphabetically)

    Sorting a field with dates in it alphabetically puts October "10" dates immediately after January "1" and groups all years by month -- so January 2013, 2014, 2015, etc. all come before October 2013, 2014, 2015, etc. This is a problem, of course, for any records that must be displayed in chronological order.

    To get around this, I have to change the date format in Excel to United Kingdom, YYYY-MM-DD, save as a CSV and import. Since Excel reverts dates back to MM/DD/YYYY each time you reopen a file, it requires very careful handling so that I don't accidentally upload…

  13. Re-enable the ability of Minibases to accept imports of more than 100 records at a time!

    Why is this a problem? Well, for minibases with many records (our Brags minibase displayed at https://www.cusd80.com/brags has about 5,000 records now), sometimes I've needed to do some global editing of the data -- like when a school's name has changed. In the past, I've been able to download the entire CSV, make the changes in the data using Find/Replace in Excel, save the updated CSV, purge the minibase and re-import. Now that I am limited to only importing 100 records at a time, that means creating at least 50 (!) separate CSV files and re-importing each one at a…

  14. Free form searches from Minibases should default to "Contains" NOT "Starts With" -- just like Google and all search engines do.

    Free form searches from Minibases should default to "Contains" NOT "Starts With" -- just like Google and all search engines do. (You don't have to type "The" or "A" before a search phrase in Google, for instance... and if you did, you wouldn't know which to do or when it's needed. "Contains" lets you search by any keyword.) This makes it really hard for people to use the minibase search feature, and makes it likely that they don't find what they're looking for.

  15. Minibase dropdowns in descending order

    In Minibase, in particular dropdown menus that are 'dates' such as 'years,' the dropdown should begin with current year (descending order).
    Example: https://www.ltisdschools.org/Page/85

  16. Keep Minibase Search Filters Visible

    When a website user searches a minibase, the filter/search fields disappear after the search results are shown. The search fields should remain visible after the search so that the user can perform another search without having to refresh the page.

  18. Mini Base duplicate record option

    Add option in the Mini Base list maintenance screen with a button or link on each row to duplicate that particular record. We have the maximum number of fields on our mini base and often only need to create one new record that has just one field that is different from an existing record. Having the ability to duplicate that record and then modify that duplicate record would make the process a lot easier.

  19. More than one Custom View for a Mini Base

    It would be great if we could have multiple Custom Views from one Minibase
    Ex: a table view with 4 columns for the HS while the Elementary needs 6 columns of the data...or we'd like a list view for one school and block of text for another.

  20. Add multiple table styles to the default table view for a minibase that the user can select.

    Add multiple table styles to choose from for the default table view. Some users do not like the default table style of gray vs. white alternating rows and want a different look, but just need a basic table and don't want to spend the time to do a custom view.
