  1. The ability to push information to specific apps on specific sites

    It would be great if you could have an app that would give you the ability to force something to specific apps in subsite, or be able to choose which sites would get the info.

    Example

    All of our school site have a multimedia rotator on them, currently to add something to that we have to touch each individual subsite (approx. 230 subsites) If we had a a central app where we could upload a photo and information and then push it out to all those sites or a selection of them it would be awesome. This could also work…

  2. Increase size of editor window for Embed Code and simliar (New Page Editor)

    In the new Page Editor (as of 2.18), when you edit apps like the Embed Code, you get a window over only the add apps portion of the screen.
    On smaller screens, this can insufferably tiny and frustrating to edit! Could we make that so that could open like the Content app editor, or at least be resizable?

  4. When deleting a record from the staff directory app, delete any associate photo as well

    When a record is deleted from the staff directory (retirement, resignation etc.), if an image was added to that record, delete the image from the files and folders. Currently you not only have to delete the records but also have to go to files and folders to find and delete the image. At a minimum it should ask you when deleting the record if you would like to delete the photo also. This would also be nice for the Headlines and Features App as well.

  5. 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.

  6. Allow Separate Headlines and Features Apps to Post to each other.

    We have 20 school websites that each have their own News (Headlines and Features App) on their homepage. Each school is responsible for their own app. At the district level we also have a news section that we would like to be able to push out news to the other schools news sections. We had this setup as one shared app across all schools, but this does not allow the schools to post their own news, it all falls on the district to post ALL school news. My idea is to have a (master) headlines and features that can push…

  7. Ability to modify input fields in Staff Directory App

    We would like the ability to modify the text that currently says "View Website" when we input a URL. For example, we might prefer this to say, "View Bio."

  8. Document Viewer/File Library Combination

    I would please be grateful if you could please combine the Document Viewer and File Library apps into a single app. The file library on the right side. When you click title, the document loads in the viewer window.

    Appreciatively,

  11. Ability to reorganize entries in Staff Directory App with drag-and-drop capabilities

    We would like the ability to reorganize entries with drag and drop functionality. This way, Department leaders/section heads can be listed first.

  12. Update calendar look for Smart Phone

    Make a way that I can change the preferences for our site, so that when parents look at the school calendar on the Smart phone, they don't automatically see all the data I put in about the event. The current way makes viewing the calendar kind of cumbersome at this point.

  13. Make the "Start Over" button on Staff Directory take visitor back to original webpage, not just Staff Directory app page

    When a person clicks the "start over" button on a staff directory, they aren't returned to the original webpage where the staff directory app is located. They are taken to a new "page" with only the directory app. It can be confusing if there is a content app on top of the staff directory app on the original webpage.

  14. Alt Text for Site Shortcut image links

    In the Site Shortcut app, users can create link with images and rollover images, however there is no ability to add alt text for either. I like the function of creating rollover image links, however if there is no way to include alt text, I will refrain from using that feature.

  15. Staff directory to include a separate fields for a "Bio" and for "Degrees and Certifications" (similar to the Teacher App) : )

    I'd like the staff directory to include a separate fields for a "Bio" and for "Degrees and Certifications" (similar to the Teacher App). Some schools are getting creative on their own by using the "departments" field to do a short bio with education. I will attempt that also but would love a real option.

  16. Deactivate apps

    It would be great if we could deactivate apps without removing them entirely from their page. Remember that an app was already created and having to go find it in the App Manager for that section/workspace is cumbersome and not intuitive.

  17. Allow for commas in the filename to be uploaded. Upload feature is very old school.

    Allow for commas in the filename to be uploaded. Without this we will need to have people use a new file naming solution. Most everything accepts commas at the very least.

  18. Use the Template Layout Editor Code Mirror plugin for Embed Code App

    You use a really useful plugin called "Code Mirror" when working with the Layout Editor for templates. It would be extremely useful to be able to use this same functionality within the Embed Code app instead of it just being a basic textarea.

  19. Option to turn pagination on and off per staff directory app

    under options have a checkbox or radio button to turn on and off pagination. There are some directories we would like all records on one page instead of splitting among many.

  20. Add the ability to have a thumbnail image as part of the Link Library and File Library

    You really need to add the ability to add a thumbnail or accent image to the Link Librbayr and File Library apps. Especially as we are moving to adaptive content and the flex editor is not adaptive.
