  1. File icons should be uniform in size

    When using the File Library App, the left margin is not aligned because the icons in your image library are not uniform in width.

    Example: The Excel and Word icons are 16 pixels wide, but the PDF icon is only 12px wide. That is causing the left margin on each filename to be out of alignment. Can you please fix the PDF icon in use so that it is 16px wide to match all the others? It should be in color anyway, since the Word and Excel icons are. Consistency is key in any web design. :)

  3. Be able to sync e-mail and phone number from google or AD

    It would be great to be able to automatically add the phone extension and phone number from AD to the staff directory. As people move and we hire more people it causes a lot of maintenance on our end.

  4. Set a cookie to remember the location a user comes from when they sign in via SAML authentication

    Blackboard should set a cookie to remember the location a user comes from when they sign in via SAML authentication. That way, our employees can proceed with sign in if they happen to hit a staff-only link first.

  6. Change order of global icons

    To change the order of global icons, one must completely rework all global icons for a template. In effect, you have to remove all and rebuild if you want to change the order. It would be great to be able to drag and drop reorder or have an "order" dropdown or option for each icon so you can change the order without destroying and rebuilding every time.

  7. Connect communications surveys to website surveys

    Allow a link to be formed and posted to the websites through the messaging side. That way results from messaging surveys can be tracked together with surveys posted on social media and the websites.

  8. Parent communication preferences integrated into Skyward Family Access

    SchoolMessenger has an integration with the Skyward Family Access portal that allows parents to update their communication preferences (it is under a tab called SkyLert). For example, they can choose to receive inclement weather messages via text but not a phone call by simply checking/unchecking boxes. They could not edit their contact information, but could add additional email addresses and phone number (possibly for babysitters, grandparents, etc.).

    This would be a great addition to the Bb mass communication product.

  10. Bring back editor layouts

    Editor Layouts allowed you to add content within an app (used to be flex now content) on a page added to a section configuration. This would allow a webmaster to set-up a template for one to work from. For example, district sometimes like teachers to have certain content on their homepage and maybe the district logo. The webmaster could create "dummy" text in a app and the teacher would fill in their specific info. This was a time saver. Please allow editor layouts to be created in content apps and added to section configurations.

  12. Co-taught classes to be populated in teach accounts

    I'd like to find a way for co-taught classes to be populated into teachers' rosters. Or perhaps be able to manually enter emails.

  13. friendly URLs should remain and not disappear after first click

    Campus staff and end uses don't really get the friendly URL outside of seeing it on a news article or announcement.

    These friendly URLs should remain constant throughout the user experience irrespective if they clicked on it to get there.

  15. 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.

  17. Rename APPS to something else

    Please rename APPs to Modules, Templates or Containers. Apps to most of the public especially the non Tech savoy teachers is confusing. I am very knowledgeable in the tech world and its not the correct term in website design. http://www.dictionary.com/browse/app

    Apps with in apps doesn't make sense. A module in a module, or Container in a container, templates with in templates all do.

  18. Automate Staff Directory from Integrated App data

    Several requests here are for the ability to automatically update the Staff Directory from Active Directory or scheduled uploads. Customers with the Integrated App have already provided this data and the Staff Directory IS supposed to be live and dynamic in the App. So it seems possible that this data could be used to populate the Staff Directory in Web Community Manager.

  20. Can we have alt text on the images in the staff directory

    I'm getting errors with the WAVE and SiteImprove tools for accessibility with the staff directory images. I would suggest that using the person's first and last name would be ideal.
