  1. Advanced Options: Deliver to Students AND their Parents

    When we have a specific group of students that we want to send both they and their parents a message, we send it to the students first and then make a copy, choose the students as recipients again and click the Advanced Option "Deliver to Students of Parents" (which then doesn't send the message to the students at all. Would be helpful if we could send to these students and their parents with another option "Deliver to Students and their Parents"

  2. smore extend access to Principal & Attendance Secretary

    Smore is a great add but Principals & Attendance Secretaries are the ones that do most of School communication, it needs to be turned on for those roles as well

  3. Smore for Additional Role Types

    The staff members at a School District that would sent out Smores varies from district to district and from school to school. Some would like their Principal role types to send out messages but our district would like the Superintendent role to have that option. Given the various needs of districts can we have an option, even it just means calling Blackboard, to enable Smore integration to whatever role type we need?

  4. Allow multiple teachers to access co-taught classes.

    Right now one teacher can be assigned to classes. In our district, we have classes that have two teachers assigned. Both teachers would like to send notifications but can't.

  5. Tip Manager Report

    Our Safety Department would like a way to forward a tip and its corresponding note via email to another person. Since all of that information is held within Mass Notification it should be an easy upgrade.

  6. email header

    It would be great if all messages that came from our school had a "branded" (logo) in the header. Right now, the only standardization for messages is in the unsubscribe footer. It would be nice as an admin to customize the header for my users who are sending messages from BbComs. This way, all "official" messages from the school, would have an "official" look to them. I've created templates, but no one remembers to use them.

  7. Change Facebook posting ability to be able to add multiple pics/files

    Currently, you can add multiple pics/files for email, text, mobile app, and twitter... but not Facebook. My users post multiple pics the majority of the time so it is VERY inconvenient for them to have to post to Facebook seperately.

  8. Messages Sent Ticker in Mass Notifications

    Messages Sent Ticker in Mass Notifications shows overall messages sent for the district and not for each individual profile. The ticker should show messages sent per profile so as to not confuse the user and reflect accurate results.

  9. Tip Line Needs Abiliy to Reply to Sender (maintaining anonymity)

    I have posted this suggestion before but nothing has been done. This is a potentially life-and-death issue, as we discovered earlier this year. We must have the ability to respond to Tip Line posts, without compromising the poster's anonymity. Often, the posts do not contain enough information for administrators to act. We need the ability to request more information if needed. If a student is threatening to commit suicide, we need to ability to respond. If a tip mentions a threat of violence, but does not say when or where, we need the ability to request that information. Please fix…

  10. delivery preference defaults change tracking

    Add the ability to track changes to the delivery preference defaults screen. This is located under settings, delivery preferences. We would like a report or something that tracks when a user makes a change and who made the change.

  11. Unsubscribe editing

    It would help us to have control over how prominently we can make our "Unsubscribe" option on email messages. We are getting complaints that parents cannot find it.

  12. Report for Users with/without Photos

    Would love the option to create a report for students and employees who are missing photos. We upload photos in batches when yearbook pictures are taken. Unfortunately, some folks miss photo day, so it would be great to see a report of who doesn't have a photo. It would also be great to see WHEN their photo was last changed so that we can ensure all users (particularly employees) have a recent photo.

  13. I would like a message from from Blackboard that we can send to parents regarding the @sbcglobal.net and @att.net issue.

    I would like a message from from Blackboard that we can send to parents regarding the @sbcglobal.net and @att.net issue. This is your issue to resolve, so we need some messaging from you about:
    1. why this is happening
    2. when it will be resolved

  14. Issues with the Tip Line notification emails breaking

    There is an issue with the Tip Line(TL) notifications that just does not make sense and needs to be addressed for safety and ease of use reasons.

    Currently the TL notification emails can be setup at the District level to go to specific addresses based on which category is chosen. This is wonderful and works perfectly.

    THE PROBLEM TO BE ADDRESSED:
    If you enter at a School level the local parties that should get notifications of a TL submission it BREAKS the link with the District and only the local school addresses receive notifications. This is an undeniable FLAW that…

  15. Adjust Tip Manager School/Organizations

    There is currently no way to deselect or designate specific organizations for the Tip Line. It can only be disabled and enabled for all organizations.

    It would be nice to allow users to choose which ‘school/organizations’ they would like to have based on their own district.

  18. Tip Line Report for the Tip Manager

    We need a report for the Tip Line and Tip Manager that can be run by users or at least District Administrators and School Administrator accounts. As of right now, there is no way to identify how many total tips have been received or how many tips have been received for each category. This is a huge downside to the Tip Line and Tip Manager piece within Blackboard. I believe not only my district but many other school districts would greatly benefit from a built-in report that we can run at any time.

  19. When a message has duplicate mobile number for text or email address for email, please only deliver to the address one time.

    When a message has duplicate mobile number for text or email address for email, please only deliver to the address one time. This is already done for phone and we always assumed it was done for text and email but have discovered it is not done.

  20. Auto-merging of accounts

    Currently, accounts will merge automatically if 2 of 3 things match.
    ID
    Name
    Primary phone number

    I would like there to be an option to only auto-merge based solely on the ID.
