  2. Staff Directory Web Form (rather than advertising email)

    Emails should not be posted to websites due to Spam Bots and/or ease of criminals accessing and spear phishing. When contacting a staff member, it should go to a web form that sends to the org email. Even if emails are obfuscated, web form should be a requirement.

  3. Add SCAYT (Spell Check as you type) to Spell check in Content App

    Content App is current using TinyMCE version 4.5.5-44 and also using webspellchecker.net for spell checking. Webspellchecker.net, now offers SCAYT for TinyMCE. Please implement this so spelling is checked as you type inline. Info can be found here:

  4. Enable a Captcha for Staff Login

    It would be great if we could enable a Captcha to our staff login page so that bots do not attempt to login. We have had issue with bots recently and are wanting to secure our site as much as possible.

  5. Stafford PS App

    The Stafford PS app for our school division has changed where the Events icon just goes to the division Web page that lists calendar events. It used to go to the app's calendar where a user could select which calendars to include. It was great because I could see our high school's calendar alongside the division calendar. I could also see our high school sporting events. The calendars are still syncing in ParentLink but there is no where to select those calendars from the app.

    In addition, when you select the Directory icon in the Stafford PS app, and then…

  6. When viewing Current Pages or Site Files, add option to find links to a page/file

    Whether viewing your "Current Pages" or "Site Files," each item should have an option to find existing links to the item. After several years of use, there will inevitably be files or pages that are no longer needed. if you simply "Delete" a page or image, it may create broken links for your website visitors, but there is no way to tell beforehand. It would be extremely helpful, especially for teachers, to have a "Check if Used" or "Find Links to this Item" option. A popup window could tell you if you can safely remove the item or if you…

  7. Search Feature for restricted internal sites (Google blocked by login)

    We're using a subsite for our Intranet (internal only to org users), requires login and therefore Google cannot index it. We need a tool to enable Staff to search the internal only site.

  8. 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 [$APP ID=40253 Limit="3" props="Field1:2019-2020; Field14:116; Field16:n;"$].

  9. Annual recurring events should have option to select a specific DAY (i.e. 3rd Thursday) and not just the DATE of the month.

    Our board meetings are always on the 3rd Thursday, since you don't have the option to set different locations on a monthly recurring event (also an error in programming!) I would like to set up my Jan meeting to occur at our middle school every year on the 3rd week. The only option that currently exists for annual events is to have them recur on the same DATE every year. This puts my 2020 Jan meeting on a Sat.

  10. Pre-Populate Content in Page Type/Section Configuration

    We used to have the ability to pre-populate content when creating page types. I was recently trying to do so for our teachers for their schedules using the Table App but found that this function no longer exists.

    This would be most helpful to our District as the more pre-populated features we can push out to staff, the more consistent the websites’ appearance.

  13. grid

    It would be great to have an option for a grid layout and/or to be able to create custom page layouts. It gets really frustrating and time consuming to try to make a grid layout with how it's currently set up. Thanks

  14. Register for Events - No Sign in

    With the calendar app can we remove the sign in option, or have guests be able to register. For our program we want students to be able to have the ease of pre-registering online instead of having to call. As of now you are required to sign in to register for events that are on the calendar. This does not help people who do not have a blackboard login and do not want one but to simply register for the event.

    A simple solution would be able to activate or deactivate required sign in, or make event public.

  16. Make the MyWay Sunrise homepage photo gallery resize consistently

    Please make the homepage photo gallery in the Sunrise template resize consistently -- i.e., keep the aspect ratio (proportion between horizontal and vertical dimensions) a constant 1.6 (like the original 1500 x 950px). Currently, the vertical dimension varies significantly in proportion to the width at different screen resolutions, causing the top and bottom of the photo to be cropped off on most desktop screens. The amount of cropping can be substantial: At screen resolutions of 1360 x 678 and 1280 x 720, the full 1500px of width are displayed, but only 460px are displayed vertically. That's a full 50% of…

  17. Homepage photo gallery should have a field for 'alt text'.

    Although the "Title" serves as 'alt text', the nature of what each of these are are very different. What we use for alt text shouldn't always be public facing, and at times, no "title" is needed. Users then use "HIDE", and now they are no longer ADA compliant/accessible.

  19. Please enable Smore access to teachers and school limited senders in BB Comm.

    We have several teachers that would like to purchase Smore but will not do so until they are able to use it in conjunction with BB Comm mass notifications. Blackboard owns Smore correct? Seems like this could be solved for relatively quickly. Thanks!

  20. In my staff directory (minibase) we need a way to sort first name a-z and/or last name a-z at the same time.

    In my staff directory (minibase) we need a way to sort first name a-z and/or last name a-z at the same time. This way if the public or a staff member knows the first name it would sort alphabetically OR if the same person only knew the last name, the last names would sort alphabetically. Need this sorting feature to be available at both times in 1 minibase. Currently, the alphabetic sort feature can only be used in 1 field at a time.
