  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.)

  8. 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.

  9. Google Photo Albums that can be embedded or linked and show the album thumbnail or slideshow.

    Add Google Photo Albums link recognition that is similar to YouTube, that can automatically display a linked album with the album thumbnail and title, or that will embed a working slideshow using embed code.

  10. file library

    Uploading the same file to a website multiple times is a recipe for disaster. Please update the File Library App to accept files that are already on the website.

  11. Headlines and Features App

    1. Date and time are important information when looking at Headlines. Please add a date stamp.

    2. When adding an EXISTING photo, it is pretty difficult to sort through all of the thumbnails to find the photo you are looking for. A larger window and different view options, such as file name would be helpful as well as being able to sort by upload date.

    3. Changing a files name in "Files and Folders" breaks the link. Please correct this.

    4. Being able to tell to which headline a photo is linked would be pretty amazing!

  12. Customize App Default Settings

    It would be nice to be able to customize and set our own app default settings. The defaults WCM has chosen aren't always appropriate for me, so I spend lots of time constantly picking "Show App name on my page," or unchecking "display bullet". If we could set those defaults ourselves, that would help tremendously -- a huge time saver and keep all site pages looking the same.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.)

  17. 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...

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
