  1. The calendar in it's new form is way less user friendly.

    The way that the calendar looks when I am editing (or how it used to look was so much more user friendly). Right now it is hard for my students to see what I have posted there or get to linked content so they are not using it. This new update has made it so that my time spent on the calendar is wasted because it is not user friendly for them to get to.

    The whole set up has gotten less user friendly than it was previously.

    • Headlines and Features App "More Info" link

      When using the updated option to choose a link or file instead of an actual article, the option to toggle visibility on the "More Info" link is desirable. Clicking the headline opens the file or external link in a new window an having the "More info" button there does the same but in the same window. The action is redundant. I wouldn't strictly remove it, but have an option to display the "More Info" button by default on all headlines to accommodate those who don't want it either way.

      • Control / Force Global Incons to subsites from District website

        It would be quite useful to control global icons from our district website to force changes on all sub sites. Currently if we want to add a global icon to every school page it has to be done on all 50(ish) sub sites through the template for each site. It would be more efficient to have a toggle checkbox list for each global icon with an option to push to a sub site if desired. We currently to this with custom JavaScript when needed but it isn't always reliable cross-browser.

        • Search shared apps by name

          Creating shared apps is great, but you have to know what app type and the name to find out. For example, we created a custom menu using the content app. It's not intuitive to open the content app to find OUR shared menu...there are other shared apps that are similar.

          It would be useful to be able to list (and search) all of the shared apps for people to re-use...that way they can easily see what is available to use instead of having to know what's out there and then work to find it.

          • Accent Images Replicated Across the Board

            Under your current platform, I have to upload the same image as an accent image, in the the content portion of the news feed and a third time under the advanced tab for posting to social media.

            Ideally, we should be able to upload one picture that can be carried across the board to all three areas- accent, content and social media.

            The current way is cumbersome and inefficient. Forcing multiple steps for something that should be achieved in one step.

                  • Site-Wide Find Section or Find Page

                    Provide Site Directors with the ability to search site-wide by section or page name or ID. This would assist with internal trouble-shooting and support activities by making it easier to quickly locate a specific section or page. For example, sometimes end users accidentally move a section or page and forget where it's been moved to. Other times a subsite director might accidentally delete the editor associated with the section or ask for assistance with assigning a new editor. Being able to quickly search site-wide to find the content would reduce efforts in trying to track down what site > channel…

                    • 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.

                      • Access to Homepage editing & Calendar with files/folder but not entire site

                        It would be nice to give staff homepage/calendar editing rights with use of the file/folder, without having to give those staff access to the entire site. There are staff that edit the homepage and need the folder, but should not have privileges to the rest of the site.

                        • Show tags in headline post

                          Need to be able to see the tags that have been applied to a post. The tags feature is great for filtering a shared headline app, but currently it is not possible to tell if a post has any tags. It would be great if the tags were displayed both on the teaser view and full post view as links.

                            • Obfuscate email addresses

                              I just learned that the Staff Directory app and the About Teacher app will obfuscate email addresses to prevent (or at least slow down) their collection by email harvesters.

                              Since we also add email addresses in other apps (Tables, Minibases, Content), could WCM consider obfuscating all email addresses or giving content creators an option to add obfuscation? Maybe a Captcha screen?

                              • Restore Weekly View in Calendar App

                                The weekly view was removed from the public side of calendar app in the May 2018 product release. This was an essential part of my effort to keep school board members, district admin, and campus admin plus all secretaries informed of the weekly happenings.

                                Irionically, weekly view is an option in Site Manager.

                                I have no idea why this was removed other than support telling me: "Our Product Development team is always attempting to improve the user experience within all of our apps. They made the determination to remove that view based upon their own research and reasoning."

                                • Calendar: Connect "Location" to a list of frequently-used locations

                                  Please consider allowing us to create a 'minibase' with our frequently-used locations specifically for the Calendar? The Location option is a wonderful feature, but we find ourselves not using it because we have to type in the same information over and over and over . . . and over.

                                  If we could simply select a location from a pre-populated list, we might use this tool more frequently. This is a feature that is included in many low-priced or free web calendar apps, and it should be a part of WCM. You already have a minibase app; connecting one to populate…

                                    • Allow users to add title/alt text for links in one step

                                      Allow users to add title/alt text for links in the same window as creating the link - don't require us to create the link, right click, then add the title/alt text. Way too much work - users will not remember to take that extra step.

                                        • ability to group apps

                                          Group a set of apps so they can easily be shared on multiple pages without having to individually add each app
