  1. 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.

  2. Add the Notification Title to the Contacts Report

    When data is exported from the "Contacts" tab for a user, the message field is missing. Since this states what the message was, it's important that this is available to us when we download the report. Currently the Recipient Name, Status, Date/Time, Destination and Sender are available. We also need to know if this was an attendance notification, cafeteria balance, PTA meeting message, etc.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Message Automatically Set to Send Now Change

    In Connect 5, the user would have to set the date/time when they wanted the message to go out before sending it, but in the new system, it automatically set to go "Now". I know that it's a training issue, and probably created to eliminate that step, but if a user accidentally forgets to schedule the time, rather than "Now", then it already goes and the user usually doesn't have time to try and cancel it. Forcing the user to choose a time gives it a checks and balance when creating a message.

  6. 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.

  10. Allow message to flow from blackboard to website blog app.

    Each school site posts weekly messages to the website via the blog app. If we could get the message to load directly to that app, it would save several steps.

  11. Allow For A Default Message Category Other Than Miscellaneous

    Allow a user to set their "Default Message Category" to something other than "Miscellaneous". This would be especially helpful for our Transportation Manager and her department, as all of them need to receive any bus related message that is sent. Currently, they must go into advanced options and change the message category for every message they send, which can be cumbersome or a step that gets left out in the moment.

    This will also make certain features, such as "Receive all messages from the following categories:" more useful.

  12. Would like to be able to scan student ID's in the BBComm HQ app rather than have to type in the name.

    This would be faster than typing in the name and could be used at school functions to check if student has poor grades or attendance and is not supposed to be at the activity.

  15. Need to be able to hide or edit app push notifications.

    Need to be able to hide or edit app push notifications. Had a app push go out with several typos and we need to be able to either edit the post to correct the typos (subject and body) or hide it so a corrected post can be made.

  16. Eliminate the pause

    When people receive our calls, whether it is on a land line or cell phone, there is a long pause at the beginning of the message. I wish it could be eliminated. Thank you

    I am requesting a feature enhancement that I hope your system can include. One of the things I’d like to see available is to have a quicker way to delete accounts in mass. Right now, in the Accounts page, there is a drop down for Role and School. If I wanted to delete a particular role at a lot of schools, I would have to do each school one by one. If I could have a list of schools and check boxes that would be so much easier. That way I could select “Community Member”, and select all schools needing…

  18. Ability to determine line spacing

    Currently we are not able to control the space between lines. It appears to default to 1.5 instead of single spacing. When developing letterhead, this makes the name, title and address too spread out.

  19. To unlock message templates in library so that districts can hide templates that don't match district practice.

    For instance, there are PTA and PTO meeting reminder templates that would violate our school district policy if someone used them. We don't allow outside groups to use our system, including us sending on their behalf. But the templates are locked, so I can't hide them for our message senders. Please consider unlocking these for administrators. Thank you.

  20. Allow Standard Phone Call Footer Audio to Be Disabled

    A few of our district departments need to use the calling system, but don't want the same standard call footer as the main district ('if you have any questions call ..."). They do not have the same number as the main district number and are not located in our building...it's very confusing when they send out calls for transportation or food service, and then people call our main office with follow up questions we can't answer. Note: this is NOT the same as the header/footer on outbound calling option that we always leave checked. It is the message hardwired into…
