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 can refine staff by position name (i.e. teacher, teaching assistant, nurse, principal) or school (abbreviated).
We strongly encourage Blackboard develop these functions and would be very grateful if they did!
