  1. Please let us see the source code in all the apps

    The apps are not always particularly responsive, and frequently run afoul of web accessibility requirements. The Content app at least allows us to fix the clunky code generated by the app. It would be nice if we could have similar access in ALL the apps. The Table app is almost useless without that feature. I made one minor edit to a cell and now it no longer aligns. If I could see the code, I might be able to fix it.

  2. Allow users to add title/alt text for links in one step

    Allow users to add title/alt text for links in the same window as creating the link - don't require us to create the link, right click, then add the title/alt text. Way too much work - users will not remember to take that extra step.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. blog summary app

    It would be nice to have an app that takes an existing blog and and creates an app that shows just a couple of lines of the article, with a link to the full blog entry. Kind of how there is an app that shows a couple of days of the overall calendar app. This would be handy to use as part of a landing page for a section. Basically create a headline like app that uses a Blog entry as the body so you can maintain a single page with all of the full blog entries.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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 ****.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  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.
