  1. Unit Materials,Standards and Instructional Strategies

    It would be great if we could set up unit materials, lesson instruction and objectives from the beginning of setting up the unit. If it can be like the current standards with a box to generate the same info for all the lessons under that unit. As an ELL teacher much of my information is shared for multiple classes and materials don't change. It's too tedious to copy/paste for each lesson. I need to have it just in case a sub is used for my class.

  4. Please bring back LIST VIEW to come back for 'all lessons'

    Recently, the LIST VIEW for 'all lessons' has disappeared. All of the lessons now just say 'untitled lesson' or 'empty lesson'. You have to go through each lesson and click on the little triangle at the left side of each to edit and then open and view that lesson. It takes far too long to do something that used to be automatic. When I only see classes every 3 school days, seeing a 'weekly view' isn't helpful. I need to see the running list of the entire school year for that class. (Music, Art, PE, etc, often see students only…

  5. Reset Lesson - Revert to Template

    I would love to be able to delete the content of a lesson and reset it to the template default. As it is, I have the option to delete the entire lesson, or I have to manually copy/paste the template into the lesson.

    Hello! If you right-click on the lesson you wish to remove the template from and select “Delete Lesson”, this will delete the lesson and restore the lesson block to the default template automatically.

  6. Lock lesson without going back to top

    After I lock a lesson, the screen always goes back to the top of my day's plans. I have to then scroll down to where I was working. It is extremely annoying when I am writing lessons for 9 different groups, and some of the groups are in similar topics, and I can't remember which lesson plan I was working on at the moment.

  7. Improve the snow day

    There should be a simple option for "snow day" or "unexpected cancellation" for inclement weather or other reasons. Within that option, there should be a simple checkbox to either count the school day or not (this matters to elementary school teachers who count the days and celebrate 100 days). Secondly, there should be an easy checkbox to continue or skip the cycle day. Finally, there should be an easy checkbox of what to do with the lessons (deleted or pushed to the next day or even saved on that day to be used when the teacher can make up the…

    Good news! On the Add drop down, you can select to add a “No School Day”. You’ll see two check boxes, both automatically selected, to mark this day as a No School and a No Cycle day. This will ensure that all lessons are automatically adjusted, and your school day counter is correct. Hope that helps, any questions please let us know!

  8. Set event for entire school year

    Instead of having to set the dates for all events, would be helpful to be able to just say repeat weekly, daily, monthly for the whole school year.

  9. Allow students to join a teacher's class/period with a code

    Students join google classroom, quia, nearpod, and so many other sites using a generated code. If students could add themselves, it would be much less work than it is for admin to assign students to teachers and teachers to then assign students to their individual classes.

    Good news! You can now provide your students with a join code or URL to automatically join one or all of your classes for a school year. This means that administrators no longer need to assign students to teachers, and teachers no longer need to assign students to classes.

    To generate a join code, click Go To > Students > Generate Join Codes

  10. New sharing link each school year

    Have the sharing option renew each year. This way when changing teaching partners you can still keep your lessons private and decide each year who you want to give access to for that year.

  11. Allow admin to create school-wide templates

    This would allow admins to provide school-specific planning templates to teachers, reducing the workload on teachers. We have specific planning practices we'd like our teachers to use, but we don't want them to have to "recreate" a template in our lesson layout.

  12. Expand the Unit Planning Template

    Please consider expanding the Unit Planning tabs/options to mirror those of the lessons. I would like the various tab options to allow for comprehensive unit planning. If I use the current unit planning template, I do not have room to organize ideas and materials. If I try to use the lesson planning template, which is better suited to hold large quantities of information, my "unit" gets lost on a given date.

  13. Share a Lesson Bank

    My colleagues and I "divide and conquer " entire units and curriculum. If we could put these lessons in a central sharable bank it would be more efficient than only being able to share scheduled units.

    Good news, we’ve added a new method for sharing plans between teachers! You can now enter individual teacher emails, select specific classes or lesson banks, and set view or edit rules for each lesson section. When combined with our new Lesson Linking feature, you now have a much more effective way to enable teacher collaboration!

  14. Unify the student view

    Unify the student view so that students by default see the plans for every class they’re in (without having to toggle between teachers), at least for an overview.

  15. Allow users to specify which lesson tabs are auto copied in replica.

    When a teacher uses replica to plan with his/her team, it would be helpful to be able to put personal notes or decide which tabs would be included. If I teach a bi-lingual class I might use different assignments. If I have math groups, I might want to include which students are in each one. That would allow us to share the workload and still have the records we are required to have specific to our own class.

  16. Improve iOS app

    While Planbook has never been the nicest looking online lesson planner, it has offered the best feature set at the most affordable price. Recently, however, I've noticed that the iOS is almost unusable. On my iPhone X, they layout is way off, and the icons look incredibly low-res and blurry. At this point, I feel like it would almost be better to have no iOS app at all than to have it in its current form.

    We are happy to announce that we have released our completely new Planbook Mobile app! Please take a look on your device’s app store and let us know if that works a bit better for you!

  17. Multiple teachers to a class

    Allowing multiple teachers in the same class for Special Education teachers and General Education teachers to actively collaborate on lessons within Planbook. This could also work well for any schools that have teams that want to all teach the same thing on the same day.

    Good news! Planbook now allows teachers to establish permissions for each class. This allows multiple teachers to share/link the lessons, and you can define rules for who is able to view or edit each section of the lesson. Hope this helps, any questions please let us know!

  18. Default calendar jump

    When setting up holidays for the new year, have calendar default so that if I pick the start date, the end date calendar pops up in the same month.
    For example, when I am entering dates right now, the calendar automatically shows June 2018. If I jump ahead and pick the start date of December 24 (for start of Christmas break), when I go to set the end date, it still defaults to June 2018 (which is impossible, and kinda annoying).

  19. have the option to apply changes to a lesson that has been extended.

    There are times when I have completed a lesson plan and have clicked the extend button, but then realized I made a typo or forgot to put something in. When I go to edit the original lesson that was extended, I have to go through and make this change on the day to which the original lesson was extended. It would be great to have an option that allows me to copy these changes to those lessons that have been extended from the original one. Something like, "Do you wish to make these changes to extended lessons as well?"

    You now have the option to LINK multiple lessons together. This means that when you change one lesson, the others will automatically change as well. To create the link, select “Link Lesson” from the Lesson Action menu. Hope that helps, any questions just let us know!

  20. Link Assessments to Lessons, Not Dates

    I have added in my lessons and assessments, but when I had to "bump" the lessons, the assessments did NOT move... So now I have to go in and manually edit the dates for all 15 of them!! Ugh! It would be most helpful if an assessment could be tied to a specific lesson. The "lesson" that day just happens to be a test or quiz. This way, if you bump lessons, EVERYTHING shifts.

    If the lessons have a unique lesson identifier, then the assessment could be attached to that lesson.

    Good news! You can now attach assignments and assessments directly to your lessons. Simply use the “Add Assignment” or “Add Assessment” options on the Lesson Action drop down. When you shift your lessons, your assessments/assignments will shift as well. Hope that helps, any questions just let us know!
