  1. Logout

    If the program logs out due to inactivity, the screen should change to the login screen. I thought I was logged in after being logged out due to inactivity and wasted 2 hours of work that didn't save. Standard programming would provide a warning before logging out and the screen would change to the login screen once a forced logout occurs. Please make this change ASAP. Thank you.

  2. Editing a message after it has been scheduled

    After scheduling a message it would be nice to be able edit the message rather then having to cancel it and reload it from the saved messages.

  3. Increase Text Character limit in ParentLink

    We used to use Connect 5 & moved to Parentlink Connect 5i...for SMSText, C5 allowed 300 chrctrs and C5i only allows 140 chrctrs.

    It would be great to be have the ability to increase limit for our District OR, allow the user to type in more than 140 chrctrs and let the system break up the msg into 2 msgs -- just like the Iphone does...thanks

  4. Please add the language option of Chuuk/Chuukese for custom daily attendance messages

    We have a number of families who speak Chuukese. We would like to send out customized daily attendance emails to those families, but cannot because Chuuk/Chuukese is not in the list of pull-down options. We can translate the message ourselves.

  7. Send More than One Message at a Time

    I would like to be able send multiple messages under one delivery batch. For example if I want to send messages about different topics to one student, I would prefer to do deliver multiple messages at one time as opposed to creating a separate delivery for each message.

  9. Add Message Titles - Contacts Export File

    The CSV file that is generated when I click the Export button from the Contacts tab in the parent/student files, the message titles are blank in the CSV file.

  10. Need to bring back the [period] merge tag for attendance messages.

    As of right now when an attendance message goes out to parents there is not a merge tag to let parents know what period their student was absent from. I think inserting a period merge tag would be beneficial so when a student only misses 1 or 2 periods it does not give the impression to the parent that their student has an all day absence.

  11. Editable Widget for Email Sign Up

    Make it possible to edit the Widget that we post on our website to allow community members to sign up for notifications. The size of the widget doesn't sit right on the page, and we don't want to allow community members to have options of which schools to sign up for - only the district.

  12. Display Student ID# in Select Recipients "from a list" view

    Display Student ID# in Select Recipients "from a list" view. Currently, when you choose a student folder within a school a list of the students is displayed. This lists students as lastname, firstname. If there are multiple students with the same name, Joe Smith or Jose Hernandez, then you display 5 Joe Smiths and 7 Jose Hernandez.

    When using this method to select specific students for a message or to create a group, there is no way to accurately determine which student is which.

  13. Groups - Add "Date Last Used" as a field.

    Add a field (column) to the Groups page that displays the "date last used" for that specific group.

    This would be helpful when reviewing groups for removal.

  14. District Admin Account Receive Copies

    I would like to see a way to set our District Admin account to receive copies of every message sent out through our Blackboard system. This would be an excellent additional backup and would also provide another way to search for past messages sent.

  15. Allow users with the role of "School administrator" or "Principal" to add Onscreen Alerts to their own website via Mass Messenger

    Currently District Administrators over both Mass Messenger and Web Community Manager are the only users that can post an on-screen message to the websites. With that said, any usertype that has been setup with the UNAV feature in Mass Messenger can see the ICON in the C.O.P.E interface, but will get an error if trying to use it. My suggestion is to Allow user types of "School Administrator or "Principal" to post on-screen alerts via the Mass messaging system to just their subsite.

  16. Widget Website code does not show schools in the category "other" as selectable

    We currently have 4 schools that do not fit into the 3 categories of schools shown by the code insert to allow community members to sign up to receive messages. If your school is not listed under one of these three categories (High school, Middle School/Jr. High, or Elementary School) it will not show up as an option.

    We currently have 2 early childhood centers, A Special Education School, and a K-8 school that don't fit or work under those categories. These schools are marked as "other" under Organization Configuration. This code does not show schools in the other category.

  18. Allow search by District Administrators of all locations for phone and email

    We often get asked to search for a phone or email for someone that says their getting notifications but "claim" they don't know which location. We have over 60 sites and would have to select each site individually to do the search. Would be much easier to have an "All" option so we can search all locations with one search.

  19. Reports - The ability to Create Report for a User not Organization/School

    I would like to run a message tracking report for a user not just for organizations/schools. Can this be added in future releases?

  20. Would like to create a message but be able to schedule the email to go out at one time but the phone call to go at a different time.

    Currently if I want to notify users about an issue and it's not an appropriate time for a phone call, ie: early in the morning, I have to create a email message, send it and then create the phone message and schedule it. Would be nice to be able to create 1 message but schedule the email to go immediately and the phone call or text to go at a later time.
