  1. Update iCal feed subscription instructions for iOS Devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad)

    It was brought to our attention that the current directions on the iCal Feed page for subscribing on iOS devices are incorrect and need to be updated, since they have changed the layout of their settings menus and are now on iOS 12.

  2. Separate permissions to edit the calendar and edit the home page

    Please Separate permissions to edit the calendar and edit the home page. If I give a departmental user permissions to edit a district calendar, they also can edit everything on the home page. This is a ridiculous over-permissioning and It puts my website in danger.

  3. 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…

  4. Develop a scrolling upcoming event functionality

    We use television monitors throughout our school that can display website content, and if the calendar had a list view that scrolled automatically through a certain timeframe (the next 7 days, for example), then those events could be displayed throughout our school. The current view does not scroll, so only shows a small snapshot of everything that is upcoming.

  5. Homepage Slideshow Preview

    It would be nice to preview a homepage slideshow to see what it looks like before it is published live.

  6. Animated flip page document app

    Would love if there was an app that had an animated flip page option for our student handbooks. Our student handbooks are long and it would be easier on the viewer to read it this way online.

  7. Allow the pics in the 1280 x 500 gallery to have a status option, such as Inactive or Active. (In the Home Page of School District Site

    Allow photos in the 1280 x 500 gallery to have a status option, such as Inactive or Active. This would be extremely helpful.

    (Specifically In my Home Page of School District Site).

    There are (the same) pictures I like to load depending on the season and would rely on this feature. It's an feature that is available elsewhere on the Blackboard sites/my school site, why not for the gallery area? I've asked on the phone in the past years, but not in this venue. Please allow.

  8. Extend Google Sign-in option to all sign-in pages

    The current Google Sign-in option is good, but needs to be available on all sign-in pages when turned on. Two examples of pages are the sign-in page for the content moderation approval queue and the sign-in page for Universal Navigation between WCM and BB Comms sites.

  9. Consistent field names

    It would be incredibly helpful for the back end to have consistent names for things such at title and alt text. In some places it's called tooltip and most users don't know what a "tooltip" is. I didn't even know until I did an accessibility training with Blackboard.

  10. Fixed accessibility errors are still listed in issues...

    When I fix accessibility issues they still show up on the list of issues, which makes it hard to go through and work on new things day to day. If fixed issues are still going to be listed, being able to filter them out somehow would be great. Alternatively, simply not listing them in the Accessibility issues section would help too.

  11. Option for Site Administrators show a video/message that greets all content editors upon signing in to Site Manager

    When activating the New Page Editing Experience all contents editors are currently greeted with a video overview of the New Page Editing Experience the first time they sign in to Site Manager. I would like this feature to be expanded to Site Administrators so that they have the option to greet all WCM content editors upon logging in with a video or message. For example, we would like all of our WCM content editors to annually be greet with a video about website accessibility that we produced.

  12. It would be really nice if all apps were accessible and responsive; this should be the standard..

    All school websites should be both accessible and responsive, to ensure we're accommodating all the needs of our staff, families, students, and community members. While a handful of apps are described as responsive and accessible, far too many are not. Those that are not, should be revised and replaced with versions that ensure ADA compliance and allow access from a variety of devices and screen sizes.

  13. require minimum 9 characters on public user name

    Our AD limits user IDs to 8 characters. We find that often non staff squat on user names that are needed (assigned) to staff. TO use LDAP, CMS User Name must match the 3-8 character AD user ID. If we require outsiders to have user names > 8 characters, we prevent any outsiders from taking unique user names that future staff may need.

  14. Table App Accessibility Compliance

    Add accessibility fields to Table App, as is, it completely fails Web Accessibility standards. Tables must have column and row headers. Data in a table should have code to reference the column and row it represents as a TD HEADER. Abbreviations in table data should have code to add ABBR TITLE to the TD. If you cannot make the Table App accessible, at least make the code available within the app so that editors can manually code tables for accessibility.

  15. Do WCM forms have the ability to send confirmation emails? If not, they should

    Parents and staff can't seem to live without a confirmation from forms—and I'm sick to death of hearing, "Well, Google forms send an confirmation email!"

  17. Slideshow: SEND DELETED GALLERY ITEMS TO RECYCLE BIN!

    Since the picture thumbs are SO SMALL and there are NO DATES listed in the file Gallery List, I have accidentally deleted pics that are NOT RECOVERABLE.

    Please add creation/modify dates, hover over for a larger thumb, and send deleted pics to a recycle bin where they can be recovered if deleted in error.
