  1. Having the ability to send Twitter eAlerts through the Headlines & Features app.

    Having this ability to send an eAlert to Twitter directly from Headlines and Features would help promote important happenings more quickly, but also save us from having to recreate the post as an eAlert or directly on Twitter.

  2. Sign up for text alerts with only a phone number at registration

    Currently members are required to enter an email address to receive alerts when many of our families do not have email addresses. Can we remove this requirement and allow family members and community members to register with their names and phone numbers only?
    Thank you.

  3. Co-taught classes to be populated in teach accounts

    I'd like to find a way for co-taught classes to be populated into teachers' rosters. Or perhaps be able to manually enter emails.

  4. Allow e-alert subscription at the Page level instead of Section level

    Right now a User can only subscribe to e-alerts at the Section level. Generally speaking, teachers only have one Section and all their Pages are contained in that one Section. If a teacher, for example, has a Page for her Biology class and a different Page for her Chemistry class (both in the same Section), there's no way for a User to subscribe to e-alerts from the ONLY the Biology Page. The user would have to subscribe at the Section level and then receive e-alerts for both the Biology Page AND the Chemistry Page. As a Parent or Student this…

  5. Make broadcast e-alerts available in all workspaces so teachers can contact classroom parents without being site directors.

    Our teachers need the ability to go to their classroom and choose "e-alert" to create and send an email to the parents in their rooms -- field trip cancelled, conferences appointments due, etc. To do this now, I need to make them all site admins (not wise I think!). Without this function, every teacher is maintaining separate email/distro lists for parents, asking us for new lists, new emails, etc. Can you make this option available site-wide? Thank you!

  6. Allow customization of default e-Alert messages

    The default e-Alert message will always require some customization. I would like to be able to customize the default message to make it less work to send out.

  7. E-newsletter option

    I would like to see a WYSIWYG tool to create dynamic e-newsletters that could be hosted on the Schoolwires site, and the html could also sent via email services (such as Parent Link). Constant Contact and others offer this, but I would like to see it integrated with Schoolwires / Blackboard and hosted on our own site.

  8. Subscribers

    Create an easy way to tell if there are subscribers to a particular page. Then, if you see that there are, you can create the report for more details.

  9. Hide content from subscriptions

    We would like to hide content from "Manage Subscriptions" and "Other Areas"? It's a bit overwhelming. We would like to deliver a more focused list.

  10. Content E-Alerts send from Section contact (instead of Site Contact)

    Currently, when a teacher sends out a content E-Alert from his/her section, the resulting email shows the "from" address to be that of the Site Contact. It would be very nice to be able to use the section's contact address as the from address.

    This would allow parents to easily see and understand what teacher the alert is coming from, and could also easily respond back via email.

  11. Full Page view doesn't work on MacBook Pro

    I use a MacBook Pro to edit my website. When I am creating a html broadcast e-alert using Chrome or Safari, if I change to full page view the top level tool bar disappears as well as the Save button on the bottom. I can't change back to the partial page view. So I basically can't save the changes I make.

  12. e-alert

    We use the email e-alert system a lot and I think we need a better way to manage or e-alert groups. We would like to be able to
    -automatically import our parents' information from Blackboard Connect
    -allow individuals to manage their subscription to the e-alert system
    -maintain an email e-alert system without having to use user accounts
    -automatically merge employee information into the e-alert system
    Thanks for your consideration

  13. More control over E-alert subscribers

    At times it would be useful to have access to the list of accounts and manually add users as subscribers to E-alerts. For internal (department) purposes, it would be beneficial to let an administrator decide who should receive email updates. From a teacher's perspective, sometimes it's easier and less time-consuming to just find the parent account and add it to the subscriber list for his/her section. This is especially true for Athletics as well.

  15. Need formatting capabilities for E-alerts sent from pages or sections

    We need the ability to have some basic formatting when we send e-alerts from individual pages or sections (not the broadcast e-alerts sent from the home page, that features is great!). The emails sent from these pages look horrible and unprofessional. It would also be great if we can add an attachment when sending those e-alerts.

  16. Enable e-alert for discussion app even when protected

    Our users would like to have discussion groups and use the discussion app password protected. However, they don't want to have to check back constantly to see if someone commented or added a new discussion. It would be great if an e-alert could be sent. When the moderator approves the discussion, send out the e-alert.
    Even rss doesn't work - because it's password protected.

  17. subscription

    Please provide the ability to prevent users from subscribing to specific areas of the website. Currently, we have some sections that are hidden in channel navigation, or sections that are solely being used as hyperlinks. In cases like these, we do not want users to be able to see or subscribe to these items in the "Other Areas of Interest" tab in the "Manage Subscriptions" window. Perhaps a checkbox can be added to the "Section Options" screen to provide the ability to exclude that section from the list of subscription options. Additionally, channels with no viewable sections should be excluded…

  18. Allow other third-party alerts to be subscribed to for school safety

    We use a county e-alert system at nixle.com to post lock-outs, etc. Every school in the county uses nixle. It would be great if parents could subscribe to this system directly through the third-party alerts under the "My Accounts - E-Alert settings" area. Currently, the only 3rd party alert is the Weather Channel. Thank you.

  19. Broadcast Email Attachments

    There is a need, at times, to include attachments to Broadcast emails. Please add this to the system in the future.

  20. Allow broadcast eAlerts to be sent immediately

    When needing to send an eAlert ASAP it would be helpful to be able to send it immediately as opposed to have to schedule it. Sometimes the end-user time is not matching exactly with the server time so it can occasionally be scheduled for a time that has already past.
