  1. Revise Embed Code App Instructions

    Add the suggestion about making sure the url is secure if the code doesn't work. Changing http to https usually solves the problem. That's a simple change.

  2. Assignments App Calendar events don't sync to Google Calendar

    The ability to add assignments via the Assignments App to the Calendar is great, but those "locked" items do not sync to a Google Calendar for that same Calendar App. It would be great if all calendar events synced.

  3. Hyperlink to the App Showroom when editing a webpage

    It would be helpful to have a "Learn about Apps" hyperlink near the bottom of the "Create New... Apps" section in an Edit window.

    The hyperlink would open a new web browser tab taking the user to Blackboard's App Showroom at https://cerc.blackboard.com/appshowroom

    This would allow for a one-click opportunity to learn more about an App you may want to use when editing a webpage before actually inserting the App into a page (see what it will look like, view the fields it has to offer, look though its PDF Guide for details, etc.)

  5. Allow simple Slideshow display throughout the template

    Only on the homepage can you show a slideshow without the ribbon of thumbnails below. Can you allow an option to display slideshows throughout the site to simply rotate through slideshow images (without the black background and thumbnails beneath)? That way, we could rotate images on admission pages, or to display text-only messages...

  6. Q & A App needs some updating.

    Please put all of the questions at the top of the page, and have the Q&A follow at the bottom. See https://il02215044.schoolwires.net/Page/833 for sample of what I mean. That way for a lengthy Q&A the user doesn't need to read through everything, they can just read the questions first and decide which one to click on.

  7. Add a link to the Google Drive folder in the Google Folder App

    Include a clickable link to view the folder that you have specified within the App in Site Manager and provide the option to show on the frontend as well so that it's easy to jump into the Google Drive folder in a new window.

  8. Make minibase drop down lists searchable

    It would be very helpful if drop down lists in the minibase app could be searchable - meaning you start typing and it jumps down to that entry on the list.

  10. App for visitors to send in photos.

    A way for parents and/or community members to submit photos to the website. Then the site manager could use them on the website or for other projects like their school yearbook.

  11. Document Viewer needs adjusting

    Since the last update Word Documents are no longer previewing in the document viewer. The document viewer converts all the files to Google docs when expanded. This is also troublesome when putting up fillable PDF forms. Many end users don't know to scroll down below the document and click the "click here" link to download.

  12. set the amount of records shown for site shortcuts

    It would be great to have the ability to limit the amount of records shown on a site short cuts app OR have the ability to hide the url portion of the link library app. Either would achieve the same effect. We like the clean look of the site shortcuts app but when sharing it to a page, we'd love to be able to limit the records and add a 'learn more; in a shared instance of the app.

    check out: www.rcsdk12.org and look at the site shortcuts app usage in column D (center) called 'RCSD News Releases'. We'll have…

  13. Front end viewing

    It would be nice to have an examples page so you can view what an app looks like on the front end. Descriptions and how-to are not helpful when you don't know what the end results look like and what kind of variables you would like to incorporate.

  14. Fix the "clear formatting" option

    In the content app, if I have text that was either pasted from Microsoft Word or that migrated from an old site (in our case, SchoolWorld), it comes with formatting that is not accessibility-compliant. I am trying to use the Clear Formatting option and it does nothing. The HTML code remains the same before and after I click the toolbar icon. We really could use this feature to work properly!

  15. Microsoft OneDrive Folder app

    Many schools support multiple cloud services i.e. Microsoft O365 and Google GSuite. It would be nice if Schoolwires would develop a OneDrive app as they did for Google. In this day and age you should be developing features for both cloud services.

  16. About Teacher

    Please allow a page editor/site administrator to select a layout to be used in the About the Teacher app. Right now, the information automatically falls below the uploaded image, leaving a large amount of white space to the right of the image. It would be much more user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing if the editor had the ability to determine where the information (biography, phone, email, etc.) would go. Additionally, it should not be necessary to scroll pass the photo to find out who the photo and information is for as the name appears after the photo in the current layout.

  18. Frequently Asked Questions feature

    I think there should be an App that provides more functionality for Frequently Asked Questions. This is a very common feature on websites and Blackboard does not have a great solution. They have "work-arounds." But, it seems this is one of the common features of websites - questions and answers. I'd recommend drop-down boxes. Or, the ability to click on the question and have the answer revealed below. The answer could then disappear again with another click on the question.

  19. Content Editor Add schools primary, secondary and accent colors to color options

    It would be really useful it sites could specify up to three colors that will show up under the content editors text colors. Basically you currently only allow a select few colors, but there is no guarantee that these colors are going to be colors the school is using.

    This would allow teachers and other staff members to use the school's colors when styling their content.

    Yes I know you can use the template styles area but that isn't as intuitive as the color picker.
