  1. ical Feed Integration Capability for WCM

    Please work on getting the capability to integrate an ical feed for WCM in the calendar apps. Currently, that is the only way we can get our schedules for athletics and activities to sync to the pages for the schools and it is available through the Mobile Integrated App but not through WCM.

  3. Attendance Calls

    Is it possible to send out period attendance calls after each period for absences from that particular period only (and not mentioning absences from previous periods). Currently, you can schedule the time for these calls to go out after a certain time after a period starts but it is cumulative - first call would say absent from first period, 2nd call would say absence from first and second period, third call would say absent from first, second and third period. Parents are getting annoyed.

  4. Save draft of messages

    It would really be good if drafts of messages, including recipients, are automatically saved so we don't lose all the work done when we get interrupted.

  5. Reset bad-email counts

    I'd like to reset the counts of bad emails etc. site- or district-wide. This would be helpful to get baseline vs. improvement data after a campaign to get parents to update their information. Or to correct the stats if a staff members e.g. accidentally sends an email message to a batch of users for whom email isn't active.

  7. 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

  8. Filtering automated attendance emails by grade level

    We have a school that serves middle school and high school students. The loss of credit emails need to be different for these 2 groups of students. Currently there is not a way for me to differentiate between the 2 groups. Adding a way to filter by grade level would solve this issue for us.

  9. Calling report (to be called)

    Currently you provide a "Contact report" which is given after calls are delivered up to between 45 min. and 55 min. after calls go out.

    If we had a report of the "Calls to be made" report based on the information you sent to your vendor to make calls, this could be beneficial because it would give us, the schools, feed back much quicker if and what calls are being made for the day.

  10. Emergency notifications stay active on website for 24 hours.

    The messages delete at midnight, if we have a late night emergency this does not help the school or district.

  11. Export Capability for Custom Groups

  13. Reports for messages sent in multiple languages

    It would be helpful for the message tracking report to include a breakdown by language. Currently, you are not able to filter delivered/not delivered messages by language. Everything is in one, vague report.

  14. Export data from My Groups

    Export a .CSV file from 'My Groups.' I would like the emails of all the English Parents and Spanish Parents. Same goes for students and staff. I would like the ability to export/download that data in a .csv file.

  15. Create group of emails that aren't part of our system

    It would be great if I could create a group from a file without needing to create individual accounts for each person in the group first before adding them to the group.

  16. 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.

  17. Parent Excused Absence System

    I know that parents have the ability to respond to attendance phone calls to report their child's absence is excused and the reasoning, but that only works when a parent answers the live phone call. If it goes to voicemail, there is no way for the parent to be able to reply and report the excused absence. It would be great if there was a way the parent could either reply or go into some system that they could then submit that the absence is excused.

    SchoolMessenger has a system called SafeArrival. It would be great if Blackboard did something…

  18. 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?

  19. File import thresholds

    Occasionally a zero-record input file is inadvertently generated and uploaded in the nightly feeds. Many vendors use import thresholds to prevent unwanted mass-removal of records in cases like this. I would like to see thresholds added to your import systems.

  20. 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.
