  1. Display captions in slideshows!

    Please program the slideshow app to display the captions! We worked for hours on captioning, but you have to click on the tiny "i" in the upper left corner for it to display.

  2. Headline title should be able to link to a page within site

    It would be great if users could click on the title and be taken to a page of the website. Rather than having to re-post the information into the headline body, you could just link to a page already created. For example, a reminder about student health requirements could be linked directly to the health requirements webpage.

  3. Make Content App More User Friendly

    Too much is needing to be done in HTML in the new Content App. We subscribe to a CMS for a reason. It takes too long to use HTML and not all of our webmasters have a lot of HTML experience. The new Content App is not user friendly at all. Also, please default to single space. I can't figure out how to make it single space at all. And all of our saved fonts are messed up.

  4. Import iCal, RSS, or Google Calendars into Upcoming Events app

    Many school districts have multiple calendars at each school. It would be helpful if the Upcoming Events app had an option to select a Schoolwires calendar, existing iCal, RSS, or Google Calendar to pull event info. It would be even better if it could pull info from multiple existing calendars.

  5. Site Directory and Staff Directory apps: Option to hide search

    Add an option to remove or hide the Search block from the new (3rd quarter 2015) Site Directory and Staff Directory apps.
    When the number of sites or staff that are displayed do not span multiple pages, the search function feels unnecessary.

  6. Staff Directory Sort

    It would be great if we could arrange staff directory listings. I.e. I have a leadership staff directory that I'd like to sort by leader, i.e. Superintendent, Deputy Superintendent, etc.

  7. "Select All" check box for downloading files in File Library

    There should be an option to select all of the files in the file library so you're able to download them all for archival purposes. This would also be useful when deleting files or cleaning up the file library.

  8. Import ICS/iCal files into calendar

    This is the most common interchange format for calendar data. Schoolwires calendar needs to support importing from an ICS file.

  10. Improve on Posting to Other Calendars

    would like to encourage the design team to come up with a more efficient way to post to other calendars. Over the course of the year, we have about 800 sports events that need to be pushed to other calendars and the way that it is set up now is VERY cumbersome.

    For example…Our soccer team wants to have a practice so they enter all of the information in on the soccer calendar. Then they have to follow this procedure to add it to three more calendars:
    Step 1 Post to Calendars tab
    Step 2 Click “Post to other calendars” …

  11. Populate a mini-base via a Form

    Have information collected via Forms and Surveys go directly into a Mini-Base. Currently we have to export the form data and then import it into the mini-base.

  12. Ability to remove the "Forgot Password" link from the sign in page for districts that use LDAP authentication.

    Allow removal "Forgot Password" button from sign-in page. Our district uses LDAP for authentication and therefore do not allow a password reset from the staff sign-in page. Clicking the "Forgot Password" button gives a "Uh-Oh something went wrong. Please refresh and try again" error. This is confusing and misleading to our staff -- they can try again all day and never be able to accomplish a password reset. We find it VERY frustrating that customization is impossible and we can't believe we are the only district with this issue.

  14. Give the ability to track where a calendar event originated from.

    Scenario: Someone shares a calendar event with you to put on your calendar. You accept the calendar event. 3 weeks later you notice the calendar event is incorrect, but you can't change the event because it's locked for edits. The other user created the event and they are the owner, so no luck in editing the event.

    I suggest you put a tooltip, or something of that nature, when you hover over that shared calendar event that appears on your calendar while you're in Site Manager. This will allow you to contact the originator of the event and have them…

  15. Editing Records in Minibases, taking you back where you were before editing record

    From Director of Communication @ Birmingham City SD; I am in the middle of editing the minibase for the school directory. I am now on the second page. Whenever I edit one of the records and save it, the program goes back to the FIRST page of the minibase. It really should go back to the page that I was on previously. Having it go back to the first page adds two steps to the process of editing each and every record. Because there is no page selector at the top of the minibase page, I first have to scroll…

  16. Event Calendar

    It would be so nice if the calendar did not default back to the present day. I don't know how many times I have been entering an event three months into the year and then realize it had defaulted back to the present day. If I'm entering events in May, it would be nice for the Calendar to stay in May and not take me all the way back to September.

  17. Hide url on Link Library

    Now that the title in the Link Library can be clicked on instead of just clicking on the long url. Would it be possible to add an option on the edit link panel for us to hide the url.

    Similar to how you can hide the title and/or the caption in the multimedia rotater app.

  18. Warn Editors to Save their Work Before Navigating Away from the App they are editing

    In C1 the system bugged you to save your work, even if you already saved. This annoyed people but was helpful. C2 doesn't warn you at all so it went from one extreme to the other. It would be nice if the software was smart enough to know if you already saved or not and only prompted you IF you have NOT yet saved. We are hearing of many editors loosing their work because they didn't realize they didn't save before navigating away from the app they are editing.

  19. Allow files to be shared across sections. I

    It's very inconvenient in an extremely large subsite that files can't be shared across the subsite. Now they either have to be available to the entire site which isn't feasible in an extremely large site like HISD. It would be nice that if an individual school could share it's icons and images across the subsite.
