  1. Control the number of articles shown in the news feed.

    Currently, the default is 15, but our district would only like 5 to show at a time. Having to manually take ten articles and make them hidden, many of which contain outdated information, is time consuming. Being able to control how many we want to show at a given time would be appreciated.

      • Tip Line assign rights based on category

        It would be great for a user within Tip Line to only be able to see the tips that are assigned to them, instead of the all or nothing method. I have users at the district level that don't need access to tips regarding topics like "School Safety" if all they are responsible for handling are tips on categories like "Calendar."

        • Option to Hide Caller's Phone Number for Tip Line

          When a user submits a tip to the Tip Line via text or voice message, his or her phone number is included in the notification sent to administrators. Please make TRULY ANONYMOUS tip reporting an option by including a checkbox to show or hide the caller's phone number. Thanks!

          • It's odd to me that in the push notification feature of the app, we cannot hyperlink to websites as other apps can. This is a huge detriment

            It's odd to me that in the push notification feature of the app, we cannot hyperlink to websites as other apps can. This is a huge detriment to districts that link their parents to registration portals, informational sites, emergency links/announcements, schedules, etc. We obviously know and have personally seen the effect of using the push notification feature to reach parents and they are more likely to complete our desired CTA's if their phone reminds them to, yet we cant link them anywhere... seems backwards and archaic compared to every other app/push notification system

            • Tip Line Report for the Tip Manager

              We desperately need a built-in report for the Tip Line and Tip Manager that can be run by users or at least District Administrators. 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. We have 68 campuses and are growing, and right…

              • Homescreen slideshow should show in app

                The WCM Homepage slideshow is the most prominent place on the website to post information, yet there is no automatic feed of that slideshow to the app, nor is there an easy way to get the slideshow contents to feed the "top news" on the app. It would be a great add for us!

                • Infinite Campus has NEW app - please update on the global app settings

                  You have a third party external app for Infinite Campus that we can currently use in global app settings... but Infinite Campus themselves, has recently released two new apps that I'd love to be able to place within my school blackboard app. They are called CAMPUS PARENT and CAMPUS STUDENT. Can you please add as external apps like you have for Schoology, etc.

                  • top stories for schools

                    Have each school have the option to control their top stories. If they push to the top stories, it goes to the main district top stories. It'd be nice for the schools to have their own top stories.

                    • Change Parent Alert Timing

                      We would like to change the times that the alerts go out to parents. Right now, the alerts go out around noon time. We would like to be able to set those times so that alerts go off either before or after school.

                      • Set the calendar icon colors.

                        When you go to the Calendar and view it in List mode the colors are randomly assigned, but it would be nice to be able to set it to school colors so families know which school activities are linked to.

                            • Separate Charter Schools Into a Different "District"

                              Allow Charter Schools to be separated into their own "district". If they are part of the main district, they are included in "all students" but most information does not (or should not) go to them. However, sometimes information DOES need to be sent to charter schools. If they were to live in their own Mass Messenger "district" then you could still search for students or upload a list that included Charter kids but they wouldn't be included in All Student messages that are created for the traditional schools.

                              • Notifications for transportation changes

                                We would like a notification option for parents when their student's bus route has changed. This happens frequently at the start of the school year as students are added to routes, which then change things for every kid on that bus/route. It would be great for a notification to be sent to a parent if something about their bus information is adjusted. Thank you.

                                  If you attempt to open the full website on a mobile device, it would be great if the website recognized it and prompted the user to instead open the Mobile App. Many other applications are going this direction so it would be great if this system also did it.

                                    Have a section that has a barcode of the students ID number so that it can be scanned at lunch, bus, or events. Maybe even go as far as having a digital ID badge that pulls in information that is already available or could be uploaded.

                                      When copying content from email to the app, the content does not adapt. It needs to be adaptable. This is especially true in the new Smores interface.
