  4. Pinnacle Template modification

    Allow the user to put the Headlines and Features app in region "B" and show a certain number of headlines by their icons and titles. Currently, that app in this region does not allow for a visually friendly layout.

  5. Please let us see the source code in all the apps

    The apps are not always particularly responsive, and frequently run afoul of web accessibility requirements. The Content app at least allows us to fix the clunky code generated by the app. It would be nice if we could have similar access in ALL the apps. The Table app is almost useless without that feature. I made one minor edit to a cell and now it no longer aligns. If I could see the code, I might be able to fix it.

  7. Big Glitch in Smore Integration - New Emails Saving Over Old Emails in Smore

    While it is possible to copy, rename, and update Smore content within Blackboard - resulting in archived copies of each email/newsletter - on the Smore side each new issue is simply saved over the old one.

    Thus, while I have several issues of my Smore e-newsletter within Blackboard, Smore treats them all as one issue, and the viewer stats are meaningless. Smore confirms that each time I copy an issue within Blackboard, edit, and publish - Smore's system simply treats it as an update of the original issue. A big problem as our visitor "counter" that Smore includes for readers…

  8. File icons should be uniform in size

    When using the File Library App, the left margin is not aligned because the icons in your image library are not uniform in width.

    Example: The Excel and Word icons are 16 pixels wide, but the PDF icon is only 12px wide. That is causing the left margin on each filename to be out of alignment. Can you please fix the PDF icon in use so that it is 16px wide to match all the others? It should be in color anyway, since the Word and Excel icons are. Consistency is key in any web design. :)

  10. Be able to sync e-mail and phone number from google or AD

    It would be great to be able to automatically add the phone extension and phone number from AD to the staff directory. As people move and we hire more people it causes a lot of maintenance on our end.

  11. Set a cookie to remember the location a user comes from when they sign in via SAML authentication

    Blackboard should set a cookie to remember the location a user comes from when they sign in via SAML authentication. That way, our employees can proceed with sign in if they happen to hit a staff-only link first.

  13. Change order of global icons

    To change the order of global icons, one must completely rework all global icons for a template. In effect, you have to remove all and rebuild if you want to change the order. It would be great to be able to drag and drop reorder or have an "order" dropdown or option for each icon so you can change the order without destroying and rebuilding every time.

  14. Connect communications surveys to website surveys

    Allow a link to be formed and posted to the websites through the messaging side. That way results from messaging surveys can be tracked together with surveys posted on social media and the websites.

  15. Parent communication preferences integrated into Skyward Family Access

    SchoolMessenger has an integration with the Skyward Family Access portal that allows parents to update their communication preferences (it is under a tab called SkyLert). For example, they can choose to receive inclement weather messages via text but not a phone call by simply checking/unchecking boxes. They could not edit their contact information, but could add additional email addresses and phone number (possibly for babysitters, grandparents, etc.).

    This would be a great addition to the Bb mass communication product.

  17. Bring back editor layouts

    Editor Layouts allowed you to add content within an app (used to be flex now content) on a page added to a section configuration. This would allow a webmaster to set-up a template for one to work from. For example, district sometimes like teachers to have certain content on their homepage and maybe the district logo. The webmaster could create "dummy" text in a app and the teacher would fill in their specific info. This was a time saver. Please allow editor layouts to be created in content apps and added to section configurations.

  19. Searching all sites should not be the default

    The default option for search on Blackboard websites is to search all pages associated with your main domain name.

    This means if a parent searches for "homecoming" on High School A, they could possibly get the results from High School B.

    I went to Denton ISD and searched for "second grade" from Blanton ES and the first page of results were all from different elementary schools.

    We've had them alter the way search works on our site, but it does cost extra. Odd that this is the default. Does anyone else have issues with search complaints?

  20. 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.
