  1. Allow units to be assigned to multiple classes

    When I design a unit, I can only attach it to one class. I teach elementary specials, and I apply the same unit to multiple hours and days of the week. For example, I have five different first grade classes. They won't stay on the same exact schedule of lessons throughout the year. Eventually, they'll have the same units. Instead of rewriting that unit, I would like to apply to multiple classes.

  2. Shrink to one page print

    I like to have my plans fit all on one page. I would really like to have a way to have a button I can press where it would condense my plans to fit nicely onto one page. This would be very helpful to me as I try to be cautious about my paper use.

  3. Export to Google Calendar

    It would be great to export Planbook to Google Calendar so that students have one less web site to go to and have access to their homework as well as their personnal agenda and goals.

  4. Add additional undo capabilities

    Add an undo button that gives you a drop down of several things that you have done recently. Be sure to include imports, no class days, deletions, etc.

  5. Add "I can" drop down

    We now have to add "I can" statements to our lesson plans. Having a drop-down menu with all these things would be a huge time-saver. T hanks!

  6. Multiple schedules in a school year

    For instance, my morning classes are on a 4-day cycle, and my afternoon classes are on a 3-day cycle. Please change this so we can split the day into multiple cycles.

  8. Display classes by time with gaps

    When I view or print my schedule for the week, without lesson details, I would LOVE to have it display in relationship to TIME, not all bunched together at the top of the page. This would help my colleagues visualize empty periods in my schedule (I'm a librarian)! When one class is 90 minutes and takes up the same amount space as a 30 minute class, or I have a break of 25 minutes, it is hard to read that across a week.

  9. Copy - Select multiple days or weeks

    My weeks don't change much throughout the year. I teach a unit for 6 weeks, but throughout those weeks a lot of the same information is present in my plans. If I could copy an entire week and then go through and edit the changes for the week I wouldn't have to recreate every lesson every week. This would be much the same as I would do with Word; just open up the old document, make changes, then Save As a new date.

  10. Long range plans

    Long range plans overview for the year for each subject area in a week/month view aside from the actual lesson plans -- to view the general overall plans for the year at a glance -- like a pacing guide for all subject areas...

  11. Folders for attachments

    It would be nice to organize your files into folder so you do not have to scroll so far looking for items

  12. Show multi day lesson once

    When I extend a Lesson It would be great if, visually, it just took up a block rather than repeats everything each day. I am working through a lesson that is intended for three or four days and I'm adjusting it as I go. I just deleted the extended days because I don't want to adjust the lesson three or four times!

  13. See week while typing daily lesson

    If we could see the week while typing in a lesson so we can compare lessons while inputting the information for the next lesson; instead of the overlay design. Although I do like the expanded screen for typing in long lesson plans, it would be helpful.

  14. Directly edit on Week View

    We'd like to be able to click and directly edit in the class lesson box, on the page where you are able to see the whole week at at time.

  17. Allow smaller box for specials

    Elementary teachers like to show time slots such as recess, specials, lunch, and other repeatable items that usually don't require lesson plans or standards. It would be nice to standardize the box sizes separately from classes. Or, they could be a set size. They do not need a lot or room.

  18. Back-up Data to Local Drive

    It would be nice to be able to back-up the data on a local drive. If access to the internet is disrupted during a school day it would be very frustrating and disruptive if you are unable to get to your lesson plans. Also, if you make a major mistake, like erasing a whole class, then you could go back and retrieve the last saved data.

  19. Schedule by Periods

    I am at jr high, on a block schedule, so I use the a day/b day structure for my classes. However, the time of each period is different on Monday because it is an early release day

    I would like to be able to globally change the Monday class times, whether it is an A day or a B day.

  20. View plans by cycle rather than week

    Many of us teach a cycle and like to see the entire span. We would like to see "Cycle" added to the options for displaying our plans along with Day/Week/Month and List.
