  1. BB Comms

    Ad hoc report that provides all Manually created accounts for the District and individual schools. Currently the only way to determine a manual account is to open the account and if you can change the account role then it is a manual account. Very tedious.

  2. Give user an error message when uploading a .doc or .xls

    To prevent users from uploading incorrect file types, one would get an error message that ".doc and .xls files are not acceptable, only .pdfs may uploaded to the site" if trying to upload an incorrect file type. This would be extremely helpful as there are new users every year that may not know this information.

  3. Ability to tag photos with alt text when uploaded in the files/folders section.

    Add Alt-Text when uploading under the files/folders section. Currently doing this there is no place to add alt text.

  4. Update the Document Viewer app so that the size can be controlled by the user so that you do not have so much blank space for 1 page PDF's

    Currently when you have a single page pdf the document viewer will show the doc and then there is a lot of blank space beneath the page in the viewer when you have the app on a page where the layout is not the one column (simple). Can the app be updated so that the user can control the sizing of the app to adjust for different layouts. Or make the app more responsive to the layouts and RWD.

  5. Randomize Photo Order in Photo Gallery

    Provide an option to Randomize the order in which photos in the Smooth Transitions (or any) Photo Gallery are presented so when an end user visits the Photo Gallery, they don't always see the same first photo. We use the Smooth Transitions Photo Gallery on our district's homepage and it would be nice to not always see the same photo every time you visit the homepage (if one doesn't stay on the page long enough, they never see the other photos in the gallery unless they click through them).

  6. Display event only once if set to Mandatory and pushed through a collection

    When a calendar event is set to Mandatory and it is pushed to another calendar app through a collection, only display the event once, instead of the current behavior of displaying the event twice in the Calendar app and Upcoming Events app where the event was pushed.

    If you remove the Mandatory status OR the collection, the event will display once, but it would be nice to have validation set to not display the event twice.

  7. Q & A App Should Allow for Unlimited Characters

    Currently, the question portion of the Q&A app only allows for 100 characters. I would like to suggest that there be no character limit. Some questions can be longer than 100 characters.

  9. Is to have options available to allow users to reset password by username or email address. Many of our users do not know their username.

    I suggest having options available to allow users to reset password by username or email address. Many of our users do not know their username.

  10. Google Calendar failure email

    Is there a way to have linked Google Calendars send an email to site administrators if they fail to connect or update? I just hate it when I notice that calendars haven't been connecting for a month or more. I just can't check them daily - or weekly. . .

  11. Please allow for shading of calendar days (not just events).

    I'd like to shade the box of a day in the calendar if the school district is closed. If there is no school, l'd like the box to be grey (events or holiday name can still show up but the background should be a different color to make it clear school is closed.

  12. Since we are now using Connect, web site, Behind the Blackboard and possibly other services, is it possible for Blackboard to create one sit

    Since we are now using Connect, web site, Behind the Blackboard and possibly other services, is it possible for Blackboard to create one site with links to each of the components similar to what oncourse does through the modules. It would save time and multiple logins.

  13. Please make staff directory "Search" link color independent of template link color.

    We use the TL - MyWay Premium - Insight template for our school websites. I noticed that when a link color is selected it often renders the "Search" link in the Staff Directory app nearly invisible since the default button color is black.

    It would be nice to either be able to alter the background color for the search button to something lighter or for this particular link text to remain white regardless of the link text color selected.

  14. Google Calendar Sync needs "Repair"

    The two-way sync with a Google calendar is wonderful! Just what we needed. It does, however, seem to occasionally "break" and require a "repair" to correct. If it isn't possible to correct those breaks, it would be great to have some kind of flag to suggest that the sync isn't working properly.

  15. Internal (back end of website) search needed

    There should be a tool on the back end of the website that can search the entire site for a keyword. It could work for content apps or files. It's very hard to find where something is located sometimes.

  16. Provide a quick link to the calendar approval queue in Common Tools

    Please provide a quick link to the calendar event queue - perhaps in the Common Tools for each school. That would save a lot of time clicking through the calendar to get to this feature. And provide more details in the calendar queue, like who submitted the calendar request. And, if there's a way for the calendar queue in the Common Tools to indicate (like with a number after it) how many approvals are needed -- that would be a quick visual to those who manage calendars that an approval is needed.

  18. Hide app option when designing a page

    When designing a web page, there are several apps you can use to accomplish a task but they all give you a different look. It would be great to add a hide/unhide (activate/deactivate) button to each app.
    This would allow you to temporary hide the content of an app and observe how the page would look when using another app.

  19. Popup window with form at the section/channel level

    Be able to create a pop-up window for a school announcement or visitor form at the SECTION or Channel level. For example, we would like to make a open house announcement at the home page via a popup window - which is now possible. However, we would like to be able to have a popup window under our Admissions section or channel with a form to collect visitor contact information of those not wishing to apply but to receive updates or future communication about school admissions
