  2. Add fax field to Staff Directory app

    School nurses, guidance, and other staff members provide fax numbers to users so documents such as shot records, etc. can be faxed to the appropriate staff member or office.

  3. Provide hidden alt text in photo gallery

    Currently, the only way to provide alt text in the photo gallery app (e.g. www.wataugaschools.org) is to include it as a caption. However, there is no way to avoid displaying these captions, and often we would prefer not to as it interferes with the aesthetics of the photos (or they simply don't warrant a caption visible to all users).

    Could developers please provide a way (maybe a "Display caption" checkbox) to include alt text on photo gallery photos in order to be ADA compliant but not display that text as a caption on the photo?

  4. Headlines & Features app redirect

    I'm currently using some code to make headlines redirect to a specific page on my website. I'd like the app to include this feature to make it easier to manage

  5. Add 2 additional location fields to the staff directory

    We have many staff members that split their day or week between multiple schools. With a Location 2 and Location 3 field in the staff directory. We can include staff members in multiple school staff directories and in the main directory if you search by location, the app would search all three fields for the location you choose.

  6. Add code to print the lunch menu app

    We are using the lunch menu app so that our mobile phone users can view the menu without having to download a PDF. However, we also have users that would like to print the whole month. Is it possible to add code to the lunch menu app that would allow for printing on letter-size paper.

  7. Create a combination of Minibase + Staff Directory apps

    My district switched from Minibase to Staff Directory because the HTML/CSS/etc code used by the Staff Directory app displays the staff directory information in a much nicer manner, particularly for mobile devices. It is a nightmare to find and update the staff directories because it is broken down by department/office, meaning I have to modify SEVENTEEN pages. It took 2 hours to do what I could do in Minibase in about 10 minutes. I would like to propose a combination of the 2 apps. Combine Minibase's flexibility (although the default search method needs to be updated to "contains" instead of…

  8. Allow to print html into pdf

    Much of the data displayed on the website is useful to people as a pdf. For example a directory, school supply list etc.

  9. Make Apps Moveable

    It would be really cool if I could move an App after I've created it from one page to any other page. I've got some apps that I've had to share with myself just so I could move 'em to another page on the site. Then, when I have to go update one of those apps I have to remember where I shared it from.

  10. Announcement title - make it visible on page!

    Teachers - and developers - and any contributor - expects "announcement title" to be a headline. WHY IS IT NOT? It's so weird. If it's not going to show up, why is it there? Make it an option at least. Too oddball that there is no pre-set, defined header. That means each author can choose different header settings and make announcements look like ****.

  11. Drop Box feature

    In our school district we have a need for a drop box feature. There needs to be a mechanism for students to submit information to a teacher, for example, via an attachment. Here's an example: one of our teachers manages the content for our literary magazine. With our former website, students could submit pictures, articles, etc. as attachments to get the content to this particular teacher. After a call to Blackboard support, I learned that there is no comparable feature within our new SchoolWires website.

  12. Change text on Document Viewer "If you are having trouble viewing the document, click here to download it." and allow for other languages.

    Change text appearing at the bottom of the Document Viewer "If you are having trouble viewing the document, click here to download it." and allow for other languages. We have trained content curators never to use "click here" and would like to be able to change that. We have many non-english speaking visitors.

  13. More table app options

    I just used the table app for the first time, and it's pretty cool. However, I found some limitations that I really wasn't expecting. There doesn't seem to be any way to merge cells, customize borders, adjust size, change cell or text color, and so on. It'd be cool to be able to do all that.

    And I reckon that a lot of those options might not be available because of the app's Set Table Options doing all the heavy lifting to keep things responsive, but maybe you could add some more customization in there.

  14. Add find and replace option when working in code view on a page

    Content App

    It would be hugely helpful to have a find and replace function that could be used in code/html window. I have a page with maybe a hundred archived links that are full urls, and I need to change them all, but just the domain part. I end up copying all the code into dreamweaver, doing what I need then pasting it back into the code window.

  15. Improve the table app for mobile devices

    I was very disappointed when I saw how my tables (created through the table app) look on a mobile device! Because of the stacking, some of them didn't even make sense. Schoolwires promotes the use of the table app, but does not have a good way to make them responsive. Formatting is lost and the stacking does not make sense in many situations and does not look professional. One of my tables uses a total at the end, and because of the stacking, the headings are all listed for this record of the table, although there is no data in…

  16. Need an app for embedding Java-based widgets we write in-house

    Our primary students have for years used home-grown Java-based apps to practice a list of sight-words tailored especially to building and teacher needs, as well as basic math facts. We could do this in Edline easily enough; why not WCM?

  17. Allow for style changes on the filter name in a minibase

    Currently, the filter name font is much smaller than the font size on my page. Page designs are more aesthetically pleasing when the page elements are consistent in size and style.

  18. School Directory Website Target

    The School Directory app has a place for the website, but it opens the website in the same window when it should really open in a new window. I'd at least like the option to choose your target.

  19. Frequently Viewed Pages App

    I would like to see an app that dynamically displays a top 10? list of pages that are most frequently viewed. It would need to be able to filter out the current page and incorporate some type of scoping mechanism (this section only, this site only, all sites and channels) . This would allow our sites to more dynamically adapt to changing needs throughout the year. (E.g bus routes and registration is more popular at the beginning of the year, graduation information at the end, etc.)

  20. Search shared apps by name

    Creating shared apps is great, but you have to know what app type and the name to find out. For example, we created a custom menu using the content app. It's not intuitive to open the content app to find OUR shared menu...there are other shared apps that are similar.

    It would be useful to be able to list (and search) all of the shared apps for people to re-use...that way they can easily see what is available to use instead of having to know what's out there and then work to find it.
