  1. "All Day" should not be the default time showing up for calendar events that do not have a specific time associated with them.

    For example - if you wish to indicated that January 17 is an Early Dismissal Day, but do not wish to indicate on calendar interface a start time or an end time (because different buildings start and end as different times), it shows up as an All Day event. That is confusing for the end user. Exam Days for us are partial days, but with varying end times, which are clarified when the event is clicked on. But since we are not indicating a start or end time, on the calendar interface it shows up as an All Day event.

  2. Google Calendar Sync needs "Repair"

    The two-way sync with a Google calendar is wonderful! Just what we needed. It does, however, seem to occasionally "break" and require a "repair" to correct. If it isn't possible to correct those breaks, it would be great to have some kind of flag to suggest that the sync isn't working properly.

  3. Google Calendar failure email

    Is there a way to have linked Google Calendars send an email to site administrators if they fail to connect or update? I just hate it when I notice that calendars haven't been connecting for a month or more. I just can't check them daily - or weekly. . .

  5. Redesign the new Calendar display to make improvements to functionality

    There are two issues with the new calendar functionality update: color bars too small and selecting cal event details inconsistency
    The new display look and functionality for the calendar is causing a LOT of issues for end users. I understand the new look is designed to be a "clean" look for the purpose for ADA compatibility for contrast, which is perfectly fine and worked very well for that purpose, the issue is it went TOO far and took the functionality of the color categorizing away for the other 97% of users. (Roughly 3.1 - 3.3% of users have a either…

  6. Provide a quick link to the calendar approval queue in Common Tools

    Please provide a quick link to the calendar event queue - perhaps in the Common Tools for each school. That would save a lot of time clicking through the calendar to get to this feature. And provide more details in the calendar queue, like who submitted the calendar request. And, if there's a way for the calendar queue in the Common Tools to indicate (like with a number after it) how many approvals are needed -- that would be a quick visual to those who manage calendars that an approval is needed.

  7. Calendar Import Fields: Add fields for full Location

    We import our district calendar events, board of education meetings and all athletics events into the calendars, but unfortunately the calendar import does not allow for us to include the full information/address for the Location of the events. Please add Address, City, State and Zipcode fields as those that can be imported via an Excel .csv file.

  9. Week view in District Calendar is not an option? Help!

    Surely this was a mistake. There are buttons for Month and Day but no Week view. Many Parents and Faculty are requesting this. Please put Week as a view option.

  10. Google Calendar Author Privacy

    Once a Google calendar is synced, the person who adds an event shows up when someone clicks directly on a event. Usually their name and email address. This information should have a privacy editing option, since the person who adds an event may not be the main contact for that event. Should have the option also to be left blank regardless of who added info.

  12. Sync Microsoft 365 School simular to the Google Suite

    Many schools are 365 Schools. I would be helpful if the the websites could collaborate/sync with those on-line applications. i.e. Calendar, One Drive and the such.

  13. Ability to Save "Favorite" Locations that are Frequently Used in Calendar

    The ability to save locations and address in the calendar app that you use frequently (ie. schools, district office) and then be able to select from them when creating a new event instead of having to type the info in each time.

  14. Multiple Google Calendar Integration

    With the fast growing adoption of Google Classrooms and their subsequent connection to an individualized Google Calendar that contains all relevant assignments, the ability to connect more than one Google Calendar to a single SchoolWires calendar would enable teachers who might have multiple Google Classrooms (Various subjects, periods, etc...) to not have to create multiple SchoolWires calendars to display relevant information to their student population.

  15. Be able to import one schoolwires calendar to another schoolwires calendar

    It would make life much easier if I could copy one calendar to another. For example, I type in my district calendar and would like to import that calendar into my sub-sites main page calendars. I wouldn't have to use Google calendar. We can export a calendar, why can't we import that calendar back into another one? Seems strange to not have that ability.

  16. View previous year's calendar

    Please make an option in the drop down menu of the calendar to go to the previous year instead of hitting the back button until you get there. This would be helpful for teachers who want to quickly see events that happened the previous year in their classes and who might want to post the same or similar event again. Thanks.

  18. Add columns to the calendar import to allow full location details and map enabling

    The calendar import can be a great time saver but it needs to allow me to import more fields. I'm an athletic director and manually enter all the winter, spring, fall, sports schedules onto the calendar with location addresses and enable the map feature. I want to use the import but I would have to import my file then go in and edit each calendar entry to add the rest of the location information and enable the map feature. That's a lot of extra work. I would like to include the following columns in my file - location street, city,…

  19. New Calendar view is not useful

    I have received negative feedback from 3 schools in regards to the appearance, or change in appearance, of the Calendar. In the current view the color coded categorization shows up in as a tight band to the left of the event, which is fine, however displaying the time truncates the title of the event and scanning through the calendar to find a sought out item on the calendar quite burdensome and tedious. Can the title be displayed first? Or as a second option each event display in two lines - the top line being the time and 2nd line be…

  20. Event Calendar

    It would be so nice if the calendar did not default back to the present day. I don't know how many times I have been entering an event three months into the year and then realize it had defaulted back to the present day. If I'm entering events in May, it would be nice for the Calendar to stay in May and not take me all the way back to September.
