Mobile Communications App (District App)

  1. Default a Sport for Sports Scores

    Please allow us to default a sport when a user clicks on Sport Scores in the mobile app. Right now it will default to however the sport was added when we created the mobile app. IE baseball being the default sport during the fall. I know you change the sport via your settings icon but it's not user friendly and hard to find.

  2. Please change "upcoming assignments" to "grades"

    Currently, it says "upcoming assignments" in the app, but the assignments don't show up until the teachers input a grade into TXEIS. Thus, they're not "upcoming" anymore. Can we change the wording to just say "grades?"

  3. All Clickable Links Should be formatted as such

    All Clickable Links within the app should be formatted or styled as such, rather than as plain text. Users are not seeing these plain text links, as links and are missing the useful information they contain.

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

    Would like to be able to edit app push notifications to correct typos or update information. If not able to edit, can it be hidden so if incorrect information was posted, end users won't be able to see it.

  6. Ability To Emulate A User

    It would be very helpful to be able to Emulate or sign in as another user in the mobile app. We use these features very often for our website and for Blackboard Parentlink, especially when we are getting emails/phone calls from parents who struggle to articulate the problem they are having. It would also allow us to check and make sure that information is syncing and displaying properly from all of the other systems we have linked up with Blackboard.

  10. Tip Line: Change "Organization" to "Schools" in widget

    Currently, the widget for the tip line is hard coded to label schools as "Organization." This should be changed to match the way schools are listed in the Mobile App version of the tip line which is as "Schools."

  13. Allow

    Blackboard needs to remove the top stories from the top of the mobile app and/or at least allow the user to run a slideshow with images along the top. Currently, to have the images running at the top of the app, I need to have the feeds set up AND have text that accompanies the image. This makes no sense. I don't want text, I don't want information (there are other places for that e.g. activity stream) What I want is the aesthetics of the slideshow.

  14. Consistent PDF file viewer experience

    Currently Web Community Manager provides multiple page controls for displaying PDF documents (e.g. File Library App, Flex Editor). However, in the Mobile App, not all of those page controls function the same way (e.g. the PDF file gets downloaded but not displayed on IOS).

  15. Client Sandbox Environment for MCA Client Testing

    Client (Stafford County SD) suggested (requested I submit idea) it would be nice to have an MCA invironment that could be used to test data tweeks before pushing out to live app. This would be after MCA has gone live and they are implementing Student Data after the fact and parents are already logging into the app. So, Bb District app wouldn't work as sanbox in this scenario

  16. Standards Based Grading viewable within the integrated Mobile Communications App

    Provide a way that districts can provide standards based grading (1,2,3,4,5 instead of percentages and/or A,B,C,etc.) and have it show in the app. Current grading doesn't allow the flexibility for this.

  17. Display Date/Time of Last Login to App

    If parents contact the district with an issue or question about logging into the integrated app, it would be helpful for district / school administrators to be able to see the date/time of the last user login. This can assist with troubleshooting.

    Even better, provide view into all of the logins for a specific user account to gauge how much a particular parent has been using the app. This way if a parent provides feedback the district can tell if it's a user who may need more assistance with learning how to use the app or a frequent user.

  18. Cancelling a message button name more intuitive

    Can the button for cancelling a message be changed? Right now it just says "cancel" in the message tracking area. Though if it was "Cancel Message" then it would be way more intuitive on what exactly you are cancelling.

  19. In the Notification Area - Edit > Mark all read

    besides delete can you give us the option to mark them all or selected as read -rather than to individually have to mark them.

  20. Integrated Directory

    It would be nice to have a way to integrate the staff directory from the WCM site into the MCA Directory. When a user updates the staff directory on their website, it would reflect those changes in the directory within their app.
