  1. Allow Minibases to be responsive

    I would love it for minibases layout to allow responsive design. Very difficult to use our staff directory minibase on a phone or tablet.

      • Allow the filter drop down in Minibase to have a set default of "Contains" when requested versus defaulting to "Starts with".

        Looking for the ability to set "Contains" as the default drop down from within the app settings in Minibase. We currently use the minibase to house a lookup tool for seat dedications in our auditorium. Most users are searching based on their last name versus "In honor of James Smith" since they don't remember how the seat name was started. We're looking for them to be able to type "Smith" without having to swap the drop down option each time.

        • Minibase upgrade disabled searching for records

          BlackBoard Engineering Team informed me that there was an update last fall with the Minibase App which has disabled the search results. Our district has been using email group names that begin with underscore '_' . The minibase app no longer recognizes the character and doesn't return any record results.

          • Add the ability to sort a field by DATE (instead of only A-Z or Z-A alphabetically)

            Sorting a field with dates in it alphabetically puts October "10" dates immediately after January "1" and groups all years by month -- so January 2013, 2014, 2015, etc. all come before October 2013, 2014, 2015, etc. This is a problem, of course, for any records that must be displayed in chronological order.

            To get around this, I have to change the date format in Excel to United Kingdom, YYYY-MM-DD, save as a CSV and import. Since Excel reverts dates back to MM/DD/YYYY each time you reopen a file, it requires very careful handling so that I don't accidentally upload…

            • Re-enable the ability of Minibases to accept imports of more than 100 records at a time!

              Why is this a problem? Well, for minibases with many records (our Brags minibase displayed at https://www.cusd80.com/brags has about 5,000 records now), sometimes I've needed to do some global editing of the data -- like when a school's name has changed. In the past, I've been able to download the entire CSV, make the changes in the data using Find/Replace in Excel, save the updated CSV, purge the minibase and re-import. Now that I am limited to only importing 100 records at a time, that means creating at least 50 (!) separate CSV files and re-importing each one at a…

              • Descending date order Mini Base

                The functionality of the drop down to descending order in the Minibase when using year or any date information would make ease of use for the end user. Please consider this change. Users are frustrated when looking for the current years Agendas and Minutes.

                • Free form searches from Minibases should default to "Contains" NOT "Starts With" -- just like Google and all search engines do.

                  Free form searches from Minibases should default to "Contains" NOT "Starts With" -- just like Google and all search engines do. (You don't have to type "The" or "A" before a search phrase in Google, for instance... and if you did, you wouldn't know which to do or when it's needed. "Contains" lets you search by any keyword.) This makes it really hard for people to use the minibase search feature, and makes it likely that they don't find what they're looking for.

                  • Minibase dropdowns in descending order

                    In Minibase, in particular dropdown menus that are 'dates' such as 'years,' the dropdown should begin with current year (descending order).
                    Example: https://www.ltisdschools.org/Page/85

                    • Minibase Filter Options: Should display responsively

                      The filter options should display responsively depending on the device. When trying to filter with a label shown below, users can't see the entry box on many cell phones in portrait mode. They aren't aware they need to enter anything.

                      • Minibase add a filtered sub-menu based on selected primary menu item

                        We need the an additional filter for Drop Down Menus when setting up a custom view. We need the ability to make the populating of some Fields in a Drop Down dependent upon the selection made by the user for a field that is the primary Drop Down Menu. Ideally, we should be able to specify if any field that is designated as a Drop Down has a dependency relationship with a different field. Sample scenario: selecting State (that populates County sub-menu), then select County from the resulting dynamic menu and that then populates a 3rd sub-menu named City.

                        • Keep Minibase Search Filters Visible

                          When a website user searches a minibase, the filter/search fields disappear after the search results are shown. The search fields should remain visible after the search so that the user can perform another search without having to refresh the page.

                          • Show All Records on a Searchable Minibase

                            Currently when you set filter options on a minibase, the user on the website will only see the search fields when they first view the webpage. It would be nice if there were an option for all records to be displayed before any search is done in case users would like to simply browse the records.

                            I know that they can view all records by doing a search with blank fields, but the end user doesn't know this unless we add instructions (which there is no guarantee they'll read). Also, it's an extra step for the user that doesn't need…

                                    I am suggesting a simple checkbox (maybe adjacent to the Filter Type) that, if checked, would require a user to enter something in the Free Form search box. If the search box is left blank, then the user would get a message stating that a search term must be used.

                                    • Mini Base duplicate record option

                                      Add option in the Mini Base list maintenance screen with a button or link on each row to duplicate that particular record. We have the maximum number of fields on our mini base and often only need to create one new record that has just one field that is different from an existing record. Having the ability to duplicate that record and then modify that duplicate record would make the process a lot easier.

                                      • More than one Custom View for a Mini Base

                                        It would be great if we could have multiple Custom Views from one Minibase
                                        Ex: a table view with 4 columns for the HS while the Elementary needs 6 columns of the data...or we'd like a list view for one school and block of text for another.

                                        • Add multiple table styles to the default table view for a minibase that the user can select.

                                          Add multiple table styles to choose from for the default table view. Some users do not like the default table style of gray vs. white alternating rows and want a different look, but just need a basic table and don't want to spend the time to do a custom view.
