  1. Minibase default for search

    When you do a custom search in minibase and you use the dropdown for the search it automatically displays Starts With. I suggest that we be given the choice for default to be Starts With or Contains. Or make the default Contains. The reason behind this request is that if a person is searching they are probably looking for a string within the search and not the exact beginning of the string. Most searches do not even have Starts With.

    Thanks

  2. Allow multiple custom views for one shared minibase

    Allow multiple, different custom views in different workspaces and/or pages for ONE shared minibase. The current custom view does not allow the embedding of code using the Active Block toolbox. So, even though we want to have one common minibase and want to share it across different workspaces, we have to duplilcate the minibase just to create views that are specific to the minibase on a particular page or for a particular user group/role. We also can't program using if-then-else embed code statements based on the content of the data in specific fields or based on the role of the…

  3. Choose default filter option when choosing 'Free Form' with a Minibase

    Currently the choice that appears by default when setting "Free Form" as filter type is not select-able.

  4. Minibase upgrade disabled searching for records

    BlackBoard Engineering Team informed me that there was an update last fall with the Minibase App which has disabled the search results. Our district has been using email group names that begin with underscore '_' . The minibase app no longer recognizes the character and doesn't return any record results.

  5. At the Site Directory level, create a report that lists all minibases used on the site

    Include the minibase ID number, Minibase title, channel, and section where it is used. It would also be nice to have the fields and the last updated date on the minibase field configuration and the id of the person who made the change. There is no easy way to get the ID number of a minibase so that it can be used on page.

  6. Minibase Filter Options: Should display responsively

    The filter options should display responsively depending on the device. When trying to filter with a label shown below, users can't see the entry box on many cell phones in portrait mode. They aren't aware they need to enter anything.

    Last Name: Start With> [ ]

  7. Minibase Keeps active filter when in site manager

    When in the app manager for the mini-base. When I apply a filter for example we have department as a field, so when managing the mini-base we would like to edit multiple people in this department, so we filter it by department edit the first person and hit save... The mini-base than reverts back to before we filtered it, so now we have to apply the filter again and again...

    We would like it if the mini-base kept its active filter until we told it not to... Sorta like excel.

  8. LDAP and MiniBase integration

    Ability to be able to pull the items from Active Directory into a MiniBase. If I update the LDAP record, would be nice if it automatically updated the MiniBase (Staff Directory) instead of having to do double entry.

  9. Minibase add a filtered sub-menu based on selected primary menu item

    We need the an additional filter for Drop Down Menus when setting up a custom view. We need the ability to make the populating of some Fields in a Drop Down dependent upon the selection made by the user for a field that is the primary Drop Down Menu. Ideally, we should be able to specify if any field that is designated as a Drop Down has a dependency relationship with a different field. Sample scenario: selecting State (that populates County sub-menu), then select County from the resulting dynamic menu and that then populates a 3rd sub-menu named City.

  11. Minibase: allow "exact match" in addition to "starts with" and "contains".

    Allowing exact match will help us with uses of the minibase that are more security-sensitive, like students being able to look up their service hours and only see their own record because they can match the full ID number as opposed to a partial.

  12. Editing Records in Minibases, taking you back where you were before editing record

    From Director of Communication @ Birmingham City SD; I am in the middle of editing the minibase for the school directory. I am now on the second page. Whenever I edit one of the records and save it, the program goes back to the FIRST page of the minibase. It really should go back to the page that I was on previously. Having it go back to the first page adds two steps to the process of editing each and every record. Because there is no page selector at the top of the minibase page, I first have to scroll…

  13. Show All Records on a Searchable Minibase

    Currently when you set filter options on a minibase, the user on the website will only see the search fields when they first view the webpage. It would be nice if there were an option for all records to be displayed before any search is done in case users would like to simply browse the records.

    I know that they can view all records by doing a search with blank fields, but the end user doesn't know this unless we add instructions (which there is no guarantee they'll read). Also, it's an extra step for the user that doesn't need…

  14. Populate a mini-base via a Form

    Have information collected via Forms and Surveys go directly into a Mini-Base. Currently we have to export the form data and then import it into the mini-base.

  15. Add functionality within SW to export or print the resulting records of a filtered Minibase.

    It would be very helpful to have the ability to print or export the resulting records of a filtered Minibase.

  16. Include Drop-down Menu When Adding Minibase Records

    When adding records to a Minibase database, like a staff directory, it is important that the data in the fields is consistent. Spaces or misspellings affect the way in which the end-user searches for information and the way in which the data is displayed and sorted. It would be good if a person entering a new record could select from data already entered in that field. That way, things like titles and categories could stay consistent.

  17. Include a Way to Move or Insert Fields in Minibase

    Currently, it is not possible to simply add a new field between two existing fields in something like a directory in table view. If you want to add a new field, it has to appear as the last column, unless you create a custom view, which presents other issues. This seems like a fairly common task that should be simple to do. It would be nice if there were an "insert field" option or a "sort fields" option. I know you can define the way in which the records are sorted when an end-user performs a search, but that's a…

  18. Add a 'reset button' after displaying search result

    I would like a 'new search' or 'reset' button after displaying results to a search request in a minibase so I can submit another request.

  19. Mini Base Search Term Drop-downs

    When creating a minibase, is it possible to select "Science" (for example) as a searchable field and then have another drop-down of subcategories appear based on this field? This way users wouldn't have unsuccessful attempts if they didn't use exactly the right search term.

  20. Allow connection to existing external databases for content retrieval

    It would be helpful to be able to retrieve content from an existing database table (i.e. MSSQL, MySQL, Oracle etc.)
