  1. Tip Line Notification Emails

    It would be great if the Tip Line category appeared in the subject line of the notification emails.

  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.

  4. Building the sending school/organization push notification option into the Bb CommHQ app

    Have the same push notification dashboard in the BbHQ admin app from the phone as the dashboard for the desktop for situations where you need to reach only those that follow one school. ie our district has a 3 tier bus system and a late/broken down bus may only affect students from a particular school. We would want to alert the app users from that school only as the other schools would not be affected by this.

  5. 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

  6. 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).

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. login page prompt for mobile app

    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.

  16. Content needs to adjust when copying to app

    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.

  17. 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…

  20. COPE Headlines and Announcment

    The headlines and features apps that are linked via the Send Message Screen to our WCM Site are set up but don’t allow us to use any HTML, links, etc. All we can enter is straight text. Would like to be able to insert images, hyperlinks, modify text, etc.
