  1. MailMerge ability to insert tag into the subject line

    Would love to be able to insert a merge tag to the subject line of an email so that families with multiple students can have the student name listed in the subject line of the email. Would also be good for addressing the family name in the subject line or something like that to make it more personal.

  2. Generate a tipline report

    I would like to be able to pull a tipline report and generate it in Excel. Please add this feature in your next version of Blackboard. I must copy and paste each field into a spreadsheet so data can then be sorted by Category, School, Date, etc. Please add reporting feature to the TipLine!!!

  4. Increase Translation Character Limit more than 5,000

    Increase the character limit for translation in Mass Notifications. We are unable to translate anything over 5,000 characters! Blackboard Connect never had this issue, we could send as long of an email as we want and still translate it.

  6. Allow admins to upload .m4a files for phone message recordings

    It would be helpful to our team if you could add support for .m4a audio files. Currently only .aiff and .wav are supported, but some admins record their audio in the .m4a format. We would like to skip the step of converting the file and be able to simply upload it in the future for our mass phone notifications.

  7. Additional Automated Messages

    With the current COVID-19 environment, additional Automated Messages/Types would be extremely beneficial. Ideally, we would like to be able to schedule notifications for specific groups (Cyber Only students/parents) to receive reminders regarding recording their Daily Attendance.

  9. Different languages for verbal and written communications

    We have a number of families that prefer verbal communications and written communications in different languages. It would be very helpful to our communication if we had the ability to assign one language for verbal communications and a different language for written communications to a parent/student.

  10. Enable displayed grades to be transformed to pass/fail or other similar values

    Currently grades are only displayed as numeric values; however, our district uses check, check+, and check- for elementary "non-core" classes like music, art, and foreign language. Having the ability to transform grades on these classes from number to alternative values would prevent parental confusion and allow us to display grade information.

  11. I would like to be able to manually override Role Status for user accounts.

    When deciding to make our nurses district administrators, we were unable to do so manually from in district. I'd like to be able to choose DA's regardless of job code.

  12. Groups - provide a creation/edited date

    I have so many custom groups created. Please provide a date created and by whom so we can clean up old groups by date and/or person who created it.

  13. Preview a communication that includes merge tags

  14. It would be great to be able to create folders in Groups to organize groups we create and make them easier to find.

    We have so many groups we have created that the Groups list is very long and takes some scrolling to get through. It would be much easier if we could organize them with our own folders.

  15. Reporting

    Currently, the changes log does not display changes made for the tab "other" on an account. I request the changes log show information for changes made under the "other" tab on an account. Account>Other.

  16. Reminder prompt when adding attachments.

    It would be helpful that when the words "attachment" or "attached" are used in a message that the system would give a prompt that sender forgot to add the attachment(s) to the programmed message. This needs to be available in all messages using auto-translate feature as well.

  17. Add reports for tip manager

    The ability to pull reports and sort through data on the Tip Manager would be extremely helpful, especially now, as there is much greater use of the mechanism.

  18. Dynamic Lists should be truly dynamic

    Currently if a message is scheduled a week or so in advance using a dynamic list, phone calls and e-mails only go to those that qualified for those lists at the time they were scheduled. For example, if 10 new 6th graders register during the week, they will not receive the message. This is problematic in districts that have a highly mobile population. Blackboard should be able to recognize whether a dynamic list has been used with or without adjustments. I understand not adding students automatically if only some of a dynamic list was used for the notification.

  20. Improved contact options - Students Only & Parents and Students

    There is a button we can use to contact 'Parents Only' while using a student list. Can you please add buttons for 'Students Only' and another for 'Students and Parents'? The current options are unclear, and the option for "Deliver to ALL addresses" does not in fact deliver to all associated addresses. I saw that there are related requests but they do not mention the Students Only option.
