  1. Font size in editor

    When we create a new page and we use the Content app (or any app with the editor) the default font size is smaller rather than normal. Please adjust the editor to default to the NORMAL size font.

    Why is the drop down still saying Flex Editor. There is no Flex to it and I thought that term was replaced.

  2. Anything involving a table breaks responsive design

    Tables are necessary for presenting large chunks of information in a digestible format, however it seems like anything involving a table completely breaks responsive design once I test on mobile. Please find us a solution!

  3. 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…

  4. Peachjar buttons at the top of the channel bar

    Would love to have the Peachjar button up top like Gilroy has it here: https://www.gilroyunified.org/

  5. Make event registration experience better

    First off, not showing the registration button is very confusing to my audience- having the button there that would take you to the Sign In page was easy. NEXT, why is the SSO button below the regular sign in- it would be nice if that were customizable to have a subhead above saying Employees Sign In Here-or something like that.
    Thirdly, once signed in with SSO, it puts you back to the District homepage which is very disorienting for the user as we have a subsite for our Professional Development. A visitor will then need to navigate all the way…

  6. Custom Form Notifications

    Please add the option to customize notification recipients based on a selection from the form.

    We have one form that is utilized by 30+ buildings. It would be beneficial if a person could choose a building(s) and based on the building name, the form will send the notification to that building(s) contact.

    With the current set up, we will need to copy a form 30+ time and risk having to make 30+ updates, if the form needs to be updated/changed.

  7. The new Ally feature, the large A and arrow is a bit obnoxious.

    I love what you have done, but is there any chance you would consider reducing the size or standardize the position to either the beginning or end of a website post. It really effects the way the material on the website is seen, and quite frankly is looks awful.

  8. Would love to have the Peachjar button up top like this school district https://www.gilroyunified.org/

    It would be much more prevalent if it could be up top. It's currently buried.

  9. Document Viewer App - Move "Click Here" To Top of Page Where People Can See It

    The Document viewer app often does not show up when you first open the page it is on. It often requires a refresh. But to add to this issue is that the note that says, "If you are having difficulty viewing this document....." is displayed about 2 screen lengths down the page, basically in a place where no one will see it. So a viewer coming to a page with a Document Viewer app on it will simply see a blank page and think that the page has not been populated.

    My request is to please update the app by…

  10. Direct links to files on sign-in protected pages should prompt for sign-in.

    Direct links to files in a file library app that is on a sign-in protected page should first route the user to a sign-in page, then display/download the file. Current behavior of only showing a "page is protected" message to non-authenticated users leads to a bad user experience.

  11. App Name by Default is H1

    When using the "Show the app name on my page" checkbox, the app name will appear as H1 by default. But sometimes I do not want it to be H1 because it is in the middle of the page. This is messing with accessibility, especially since there should only be 1 "H1" heading per page. There should be an added feature to let us identify which heading size we want to use. Otherwise, I am stuck adding a ton of heading apps.

  12. New vs. revised Headlines & Features new items

    Since news items are sometimes "recycled" from one year to the next, it would helpful if an existing item could somehow be made "new" when it's revised so it would be displayed up front on the mobile app. It's a nuisance to have to cut and paste all of the old content into a new article.

  13. Translate won't allow login

    When a user selects to translate the site to another language, the website no longer allows a user to log in to see any content that is protected. The "Google Translate" page will kick a user out of the website if they attempt to translate a page that is limited to signed-in users. When a user enters credentials on a translated "Sign In" window, the system hangs and never lets them in.

  14. Staff Directory Sort

    It would be great if we could arrange staff directory listings. I.e. I have a leadership staff directory that I'd like to sort by leader, i.e. Superintendent, Deputy Superintendent, etc.

  15. Staff Directory Email Link

    I feel like this should be a feature request for the entirety of the internet but it would be amazing if Blackboard could support it. We have families who try clicking on email links in the staff directory and then think they've sent an email but nothing ever comes through. My guess is that this is user error but always hard to say for sure. It would be great if clicking the email link would copy the email address rather than opening the email client.

  16. Ally arrow download options should include PDF

    My website users are confused by the Ally download arrow. Non ADA users who simply want the standard PDF are clicking on the Ally arrow and ending up with format choices that don't meet their needs. Add a PDF format as one of the download options, so at least they can choose the correct format when they click the arrow.

  17. Animated flip page document app

    Would love if there was an app that had an animated flip page option for our student handbooks. Our student handbooks are long and it would be easier on the viewer to read it this way online.

  18. Allow for at least six links in the footer options.

    At this time, we have 3 mandatory statements and the ADA Accessibility Statement that is required. We have to do a work-around and redirect our users to a page with multiple links instead of to the statement or policy which addresses their concern.
