  1. Content Accordion App

    Please add the option to display a line between items in the Content Accordion App. If you have a lot of items, they tend to start running together, and a line separating them would be much clearer to the reader.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. The option to drag different colums to a page instead of preselecting from the layout options.

    Having to pick from the 12 options has a lot of limits. We should have an option to select how many columns each section should be instead of dragging to a predefined section. For example, if I want to start with a 3 column section I have to create my own code since there is no layout available for that.

  5. 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!"

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Homepage Slideshow Preview

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

  9. Need to search for a page using the page number in the back-end.

    We have several subsites and need to locate a redirected page. Right now we have to contact BB to escalate the issue. It would be helpful to be able to enter a page number and find the origin of the redirect to remove it.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

    It would be helpful if we could use a csv file to populate the lunch menu app.

  15. Basic Board Policy App

    It would be helpful if there was a basic board policy app instead of having to purchase a custom app or build one from scratch with the minibase app.

  16. New vs. revised Headlines & Features new items

    Since news items are sometimes "recycled" from one year to the next, it would helpful if an existing item could somehow be made "new" when it's revised so it would be displayed up front on the mobile app. It's a nuisance to have to cut and paste all of the old content into a new article.

  17. App Level editing (Homepage level)

    The ability to allow app level editing for "Headlines & Features" & "announcements" OR shared tags would be extremely instrumental to districts. This would allow a push up/push down w/ shared apps without allowing users unnecessary privileges to an entire homepage (especially @ the district level). This would also allow for more streamlined communications & overall site appearance.

  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

  20. 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.
