  1. Selecting parents of students in a group on the mobile app

    I created a group and it would be helpful if you could select parents of students on the mobile app as you can from the advanced tab on the website

  2. It would be great if we could change the order of the Category Drop Down Menu on the Tip Line.

    The Tip Line Category Drop Down Menu is in alphabetical order. It would be great if we could reorder the list to our liking and the departments that get the most tips.

  4. Add 'K-8 School' as an option for App Organization Type

    This would allow schools to be sorted as a K-8 within the Mobile App instead of being sorted as 'Other'. K8's are not an elementary school, or a middle school, they need their own classification.

  5. We would like the ability to have a tip line phone number by school.

    We love that you have the option of a phone number to use in conjunction with the tip line. However, you can only set it up district-wide and we would like that options for each school.

  7. Greater Teacher Access to Edit Their Directory Profile

    Teachers can currently add websites to their Directory Profile that appears in the mobile app, but they cannot edit any additional information – social media links, phone number, biographical info. All of that can be edited by a district or campus administrator, but I think it should at least be an option to turn on the ability for teachers to edit that info, if a district or campus wants to provide them with that access.

  8. Create Campus Communication Sub-Groups

    We have had requests for the ability to create sub-groups within a campus (Choir, Football, Theatre, Chess Club, etc.) to which users (parents or general public) can subscribe and receive communications from a designated administrator of that particular sub-group. So if a parent wants football alerts or if an alumnus wants to know what the theatre program is up to these days, they can just subscribe to receive those communications within the app.

  9. MASS NOTIFICATION: Android app needs same as iPhone app

    I am the Director of Information Technology for a private school in NY and I prefer using an Android. But most of my colleagues have iPhones. I noticed on their devices that they have the ability when sending a mass notification, they can select 1 specific person to send it to whereas on my Android, I can only send to groups that I have created on the desktop. Can the Android app be fixed to have all of the same functionality that the iPhone app has please??

  10. Allow Teachers access to SMORE

    Allow teachers access to SMORE, not just district and school administrator accounts. Our teachers are asking for it too. It would help greatly with Mobile Communications buy-in from them.

  12. Ability to choose what organizations show up in the Tip Line on the mobile app.

    Currently all organizations show up as a choice on the Tip Line on the mobile app. I would like the ability to choose what orgs show up on the tip line. E.G> I don't need the District and Board of education listed on the Tip line choices on the mobile app.

  13. Update [MOBILE_INSTR] to be correct

    When generating usernames/passwords for the app, the default merge [MOBILE_INSTR] instructions users to download ParentLink rather than the District app itself and the merge cannot be edited. It would be more clear for parents/guardians to modify #2 and have them search for the DISTRICTNAME app (see below for current instructions). Thank you!
    To use your Apple or Android device:

    1. Go to the Apple App Store or Google Play on your device.
    2. Search for ParentLink and download the blue ParentLink app.
    3. Open the app and search for your district, NAME School District, and select your district.
    4. Your…

  14. Better Integrate BB w/ SMORE so that its readable on ALL types of devices

    Better Integrate BB w/ SMORE so that its readable on ALL types of devices. It's frustrating to use the SMORE feature- only to have to send through BB and see that the recipient needs to click on a browser in their phone. Not user friendly.

  15. 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.

  17. 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."

  18. 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!

  19. 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…

  20. 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!
