  1. Need to search for a page using the page number in the back-end.

    We have several subsites and need to locate a redirected page. Right now we have to contact BB to escalate the issue. It would be helpful to be able to enter a page number and find the origin of the redirect to remove it.

  2. section delete

    When deleting a section it goes to the recycle bin. When we delete from the recycle bin we found that the files in the Files and Folders are not deleted. The files should be deleted at the same time. The is really important when you have teachers who violate copyright by putting pdf's from copyrighted sources on their site and it isn't caught until after the section has been deleted. The files are still there and found by the robocrawlers that the lawyers use to troll for their client materials.

  3. Having the ability to send Twitter eAlerts through the Headlines & Features app.

    Having this ability to send an eAlert to Twitter directly from Headlines and Features would help promote important happenings more quickly, but also save us from having to recreate the post as an eAlert or directly on Twitter.

  4. Sorteable and Searchable Minibase fields

    I strongly encourage Blackboard to make minibases sorteable by column AND query-able. Our minibase in particular hosts years of documents that must be added to bi-weekly; different webpages show documents by fiscal year but it all is managed in one minibase and is being updated constantly. The Blackboard suggestion to export the minibase, sort, and reimport is unreasonable for a live database.

    This minibase is NOT currently sorteable, which our district feels is a simple and necessary function of any useful database. We also suggest making this information searchable; our current staff directory has a search box in which we…

  5. Develop a scrolling upcoming event functionality

    We use television monitors throughout our school that can display website content, and if the calendar had a list view that scrolled automatically through a certain timeframe (the next 7 days, for example), then those events could be displayed throughout our school. The current view does not scroll, so only shows a small snapshot of everything that is upcoming.

  6. It would be really nice if all apps were accessible and responsive; this should be the standard..

    All school websites should be both accessible and responsive, to ensure we're accommodating all the needs of our staff, families, students, and community members. While a handful of apps are described as responsive and accessible, far too many are not. Those that are not, should be revised and replaced with versions that ensure ADA compliance and allow access from a variety of devices and screen sizes.

  7. Basic Board Policy App

    It would be helpful if there was a basic board policy app instead of having to purchase a custom app or build one from scratch with the minibase app.

  8. App Level editing (Homepage level)

    The ability to allow app level editing for "Headlines & Features" & "announcements" OR shared tags would be extremely instrumental to districts. This would allow a push up/push down w/ shared apps without allowing users unnecessary privileges to an entire homepage (especially @ the district level). This would also allow for more streamlined communications & overall site appearance.

  9. Classic Edit

    The classic edit design is in my opinion much easier to use and more elegantly laid out. I like the simple structure, clean lines and color coded system. Please do not take away our ability to use this feature...or simply go back or improve on classic.

  10. Slideshow: SEND DELETED GALLERY ITEMS TO RECYCLE BIN!

    Since the picture thumbs are SO SMALL and there are NO DATES listed in the file Gallery List, I have accidentally deleted pics that are NOT RECOVERABLE.

    Please add creation/modify dates, hover over for a larger thumb, and send deleted pics to a recycle bin where they can be recovered if deleted in error.

  11. contact information

    It would be nice to have the OPTION to enter contact information for each section and/or page rather than having the district contact info show up at the bottom. For example, on each school's page I want the contact information for each school building to be visible right away.

  13. show app name on page

    PLEASE -- if we enter an APP NAME in the field, add a check box to show the app name on the page as well. Otherwise, I have to keep going into App Options to check this box. PLEASE ADD an toggle box to show app name on page or not. This would greatly help in the speed of creating pages!!

  14. Do WCM forms have the ability to send confirmation emails? If not, they should

    Parents and staff can't seem to live without a confirmation from forms—and I'm sick to death of hearing, "Well, Google forms send an confirmation email!"

  15. BB Comms

    Ad hoc report that provides all Manually created accounts for the District and individual schools. Currently the only way to determine a manual account is to open the account and if you can change the account role then it is a manual account. Very tedious.

  16. Give user an error message when uploading a .doc or .xls

    To prevent users from uploading incorrect file types, one would get an error message that ".doc and .xls files are not acceptable, only .pdfs may uploaded to the site" if trying to upload an incorrect file type. This would be extremely helpful as there are new users every year that may not know this information.

  18. Update the Document Viewer app so that the size can be controlled by the user so that you do not have so much blank space for 1 page PDF's

    Currently when you have a single page pdf the document viewer will show the doc and then there is a lot of blank space beneath the page in the viewer when you have the app on a page where the layout is not the one column (simple). Can the app be updated so that the user can control the sizing of the app to adjust for different layouts. Or make the app more responsive to the layouts and RWD.

  19. Randomize Photo Order in Photo Gallery

    Provide an option to Randomize the order in which photos in the Smooth Transitions (or any) Photo Gallery are presented so when an end user visits the Photo Gallery, they don't always see the same first photo. We use the Smooth Transitions Photo Gallery on our district's homepage and it would be nice to not always see the same photo every time you visit the homepage (if one doesn't stay on the page long enough, they never see the other photos in the gallery unless they click through them).

  20. Display event only once if set to Mandatory and pushed through a collection

    When a calendar event is set to Mandatory and it is pushed to another calendar app through a collection, only display the event once, instead of the current behavior of displaying the event twice in the Calendar app and Upcoming Events app where the event was pushed.

    If you remove the Mandatory status OR the collection, the event will display once, but it would be nice to have validation set to not display the event twice.
