  1. Allow customers to edit the default 'unsubscribe from email' message

    Our district sends messages from the district office about district-wide board meetings and events. Additionally, each school principal sends out parent communications weekly.

    We find that parents unsubscribe from the district email not knowing that this means they're unsubscribing from their weekly school email.

    We'd like the ability to modify the unsubscribe text to explain this detail.

  2. Indefinite Message Tracking History

    Keep the history for Message Tracking indefinitely.

    Staff refer to prior year(s) messages for community outreach. Ideally they would like to take that message, edit it, and send to the current contacts for outreach.

  3. Audio file to be applied to multiple languages (move from language to language)

    Currently when a person dictates an audio message it attaches to one language (whichever is selected at the time of recording). Sometimes the wrong language is selected or we want to apply the same message to be sent under another language WITHOUT dictating it again. If there was a way to apply the same recording to another language it would be helpful.

  4. Report for Not delivered attendance messages

    Please add a scheduled report for the automated attendance messages that are not delivered.

    Currently in Message Tracking, you can click on an attendance message and see circle graphs on the Progress tab that show the recipients for whom messages were Delivered and Not delivered.

    You can see all the recipients that did not get an attendance message by clicking Not Delivered. Please create an automatic report that we can schedule for these Not Delivered parameters. Otherwise it is too time consuming to filter these out for each message from just a regular Contact Report.

    Thank you!

  5. Keep public groups when creating-user switches location

    Scenario:
    A staff member creates some public groups at their school. These are groups other staff at the school also want to use.
    Now, the staff member who created the group moves to a new school.

    Current behavior:
    When the staff member leaves, the public group stays, but it loses all of its members.

    Desired behavior:
    When the staff member leaves, the public group stays and all of its members stay too.

  6. Email on behalf of other people, per message (user managed)

    We would like to see the ability for users to send a mass email on behalf of someone else, on a message-by-message basis.

    Currently, someone at a district-admin level has to configure custom reply-to email addresses for each school. When a school secretary wants to send an email on behalf of this teacher, or that coach, we just can't be configuring custom reply-to emails for each one at a central district level.

    We would like users at our schools to be able to type that "From name" and "From/reply-to email" into the area where they're composing their email message, or…

  7. Add ability to send test email

    Please add the ability for users composing an email notification to be able to send themselves a test copy of the email. This would be similar to the "Send Test Call" feature on the phone call message type, but instead, "Send Test Email" and I'd input my email address instead of my phone number.

    The preview button on emails is useful, but we would also like to see what the email will look like in the inbox, or to send a test copy to the principal before sending it to all parents.

  8. Allow school administrators to insert attendance notification exclusions

    Our schools employ office personnel in charge of monitoring and recording attendance. Occasionally, they need to prevent regular, daily attendance notifications from being sent by Blackboard; however, Blackboard accounts in the School Administrator role cannot set or view attendance notification exclusions. This is desirable, as the only alternative is to have a full admin set the exclusions on behalf of all schools.

    Add alerts so if students have a note in the SIS about parent communications or situations message senders are made aware.

  10. Add ability to hide Blackboard generated lists/groups

    Add ability to hide Blackboard generated lists/groups, such as, "*** Parents" lists. We have "Bus 101 AM Students" and "Bus 101 AM Parents" lists. We will only use the "Students" lists calling the parents information. The "Parents" lists just add confusion and more lists to look at.

  13. Quick Link to Tip Manager

    It would be great to add a quick link button on the parentlink dashboard that goes directly to the Tip Manager section of the site.

    Currently you have to go one of two ways with several clicks to view the Tip information.
    1) Click on Messages/Create Message -> Message Tracking -> Tip Manager
    OR
    2) Reports -> Message Tracking -> Tip Manager

    I know it seems a bit much but for an Administrator/Crisis Team Member it would make things less stressful when dealing with a crisis.

  14. Text/SMS School Identification

    When parents receive text/SMS messaging, the text comes from the same phone number each time (ex. 808-60); Despite having come from different schools or the District Office. Parents who are subscribed to more than one school (having both a high school student and elementary student) are sometimes left confused investigating which school the text message came from. A couple solutions I've come up with: 1. Assign each school a specific text number. Allowing parents to store that number as a contact for identification purposes. 2. Blackboard includes an automatic footer at the end of each text message that doesn't impact…

  15. Remove some of your default role groups.

    Need to be able to remove some of your default role groups which have no purpose, like Community Member, Superintendent, District Administrator and other groups. Let us select which will be accessible.

  16. Remove some of your default role groups, which are useless for us and in the way.

    Many of your default groups are useless and confusing for our users. They’re just of your default role groups and not particularly useful. They’re in the way! They take up the entire screen and almost hiding the last the group we need our users to access, called Groups. You have two folders, My Groups and DISTRICT groups). DISTRICT groups have all your default roles as groups and has the last group called Groups. Could you move this Groups to the root level?

  17. Display Foreign language in lists as the common name not the actual language name

    Can Foreign language lists show the actual name being filtered… ex. "Spanish Parents" instead of "espaniol Parents", "French Parents" instead "francias Parents", "Bosnian Parents" instead of "bosanski jezik Parents", etc. It is very confusing and will be difficult for schools to find people of a particular country. Also, can the group lists be upper case first letter so it is consistent and easier to read. Currently English is listed English, but all other languages the first letter is listed lowercase russion, francais, etc.

  18. 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.

  20. Assign Static Number for Each School for Mobile Alerts

    Each School Needs a Dedicated "Sending" Number for mobile alerts.

    Situation: When a school creates and sends a mobile alert, the text message arrives to end users from a seemingly randomly created, not actual phone number - ie: 606-80.

    Problem: End users may have multiple children attending different schools so do not necessarily know which school the mobile alert is coming from unless the text message specifically indicates the school name (origin) as part of the text - but that requires the message to use up valuable characters under the mobile alert character limit of 140.

    Solution Request: Assign each…
