Mobile Communications App (District App)

  1. Make the checkbox in Messages > App Push default so that "Recipients only" is automatically checked.

    Hello! The feature that we would like to see is:

    When in Blackboard > Messages, if one selects the App to push the message out to, we must remember to check the box down at the bottom that says “Recipients only”. If we do not check this box, the app push notification will go to everyone in the district who has the Katy OnTheGo app -- not just the intended recipients selected in the “Recipients” area of Messages. We would really like to have that box default so that it is automatically checked.

    Please let me know if you have…

  2. 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.

  3. Tip Line export as Excel file needed

    We need a way to export tips that have been submitted via mobile app and website widget. Currently, we can only view them through the Tip Manager.

  6. Need Alternate of Non-Traditional School Type

    In Organization Configuration we need a type of Alternate or Non-Traditional School for our charter and K-12 schools. There are only Elementary, Middle/Jr and High School. We tried using Other, but those schools don't appear for the community messenger widget. https://www.matsuk12.us/communitymessenger. According to the development team only the district and schools types will appear.

  8. Reporting feature for Tip Line

    We use the Tip Line extensively and need the ability to run a report of tips received. It is absurd that reports for such an important high profile feature have to be created by hand. What I must do currently is copy and paste each field into a spreadsheet so data can then be sorted by Category, School, Date, etc. In the next couple of weeks we are planning on a district-wide Tip Line awareness campaign. With 23 campuses, I am dreading the amount of extra work I will have to do to create reports by hand for our Board…

  9. School Info Text color makes all information appear to be "grayed out" and unable to interact with it

    All of the text under School Info (inside directory) is a very light gray color. This makes it appear that this information is "Grayed out" and non-clickable. It also is very hard to read and I am sure would fail every ADA compliance contrast test you run against it. Please change this text to black or dark gray.

  10. Tip line - embed widget - attachments

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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."

  15. 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??

  16. Test links in email preview

    When you preview an email, it would be helpful to be able to test links prior to sending.

  17. 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
