  1. Make ALL Teacher Lessons Easier to View... for Students, Parents, & Subs

    It is "too much work" for students to login (to their student account or teacher's view key) to view their teacher's plans. Sorry - but this is a high school request and we struggle with getting lessons in front of students.

    We wish to see all teacher's lessons linked, preferably categorized by department. This would eliminate the need for over 100 HS teachers to set up their view key or get their links emailed to our webmaster. We also have 2,000 students... so creating and managing student accounts is near impossible. Thank you for considering!

  2. Attachments Automatically Uploaded into a School Year Folder

    I saw a similar suggestion but wanted to give a variation. For the 20-21 school year uploaded attachments should go in a folder for this year automatically. Each school year should have their own autogenerated and sync folders that way files are organized and the instructor can choose whether they want to reuse or upload a new file. This in addition to being able to create folders and upload/delete in bulk would be a major QOL improvement.

  3. Allow typing in the weekly format columns

    It would be nice to be able to type in the columns without opening a new window. There are often times that I would like to type without having to do so in a different window, as the window covers up the columns once opened. I don't want to copy and paste, as I am not typing the same information, but wanting to see what was typed in the day before or in the following days. This almost made me not renew, but there are other features that changed my mind. If this is not a feature in the future,…

  4. Allow a curriculum mapping

    I'm looking for a way to plan out my entire year for each curriculum I teach. I love all the features about planbook, but this feature is misisng and would save a lot of time. See the commoncurriculum.com for a idea of what I am talking about. That website doesn't offer nearly everything planbook does, but does a good job with a curriculum timeine.

  6. Attach multiple documents at one time

    When I make a lesson and go to attach my documents, I would like to pick all of them at one time. Right now I have to attach 1 document, then go back in and attach the 2nd document, etc.

  7. Make a new font or color when editing a copied school year

    I want to copy over the entire school year, but have the ability to add in updates in a different font or color so that it is obvious that the different font or color is my current plan. I like the option of copying over the previous year, but in reality, I will be planning a few weeks ahead, see my lessons already scheduled and have no way of knowing if this is from last year or my current plan.

  9. Spreadsheet Entry

    I know that entering multiple assignments in a spreadsheet has already been proposed, but I'd add to that a column to do an entire lesson in a spreadsheet (include Lesson title, page numbers, etc.). By have a spreadsheet for entry, that would eliminate numerous clicks on different buttons. The "data spreadsheet" would be linked/synced to the Planbook interface so that when changes are made in the online Planbook interface, the spreadsheet data would also update. From year to year, this would be an easy way to see an entire year at a glance instead of at the most only seeing…

  10. Copy - make copied lessons editable

    In the copy section, once I have dragged a lesson from the left to the right, I want to be able to then edit the copied lesson right there. Not have to go back to plans in order to edit it.

  11. week view vertical for phones

    I would like for the week view for a single class, when shared to students, to have the option to be displayed vertically. This would fit better on a phone screen as well as mimic a printed weekly handout for students.

    I like planning for all my classes in your default view, but the sharing of that information for a single class isn't the best layout. I would use the list view, but that has the problem of needed to select the class

  12. Allow us to copy from the units within certain banks

    I like to plan in the bank by unit so I can then save those units for later. When I go to copy, I can select to look at each bank, but not the units within those banks. Being able to select a bank and a unit would make everything much easier.

  13. Lesson bank locking and unlocking lessons - change the icon to reflect this

    Within a class lesson bank, when I lock the lesson through the drop down menu, the "LOCK" icon does not change to an "UNLOCK" icon like it does when I am within the plans. Often, I cannot remember if I have locked that lesson and cannot tell in the drop down menu.

  14. In gradebook allow the title of your assignment to appear when mouse hovers

    I have a tendency to give my assignments specific long names. As a result I often have to click on the assignment to read which one it is in relation to a unit that may all start with a similar title. The ability to see the title when I hover over the entry would be helpful.

  15. Allow for revision history to be viewed and restored

    There is no way to undo an action after it has been saved. I don't realize something has been deleted before it saved and I leave to work on another section, come back and discover it is gone and I need it. So far you can only undo an action immediately after it happens. What we need is the ability to recover lessons, like in Google docs and you need to go back to a previous version of the lesson.

  19. Template Copying

    I have created templates for some of my lesson plans, when a teacher goes to copy my lessons what I have in the template does not copy --- which is frustrating! i would love for teachers to be able to copy my lessons that I use a template for and have all information carry over.

  20. Allow for printing options so that I can print by Status.

    I will often create one lesson and assign it the status New and reuse it for multiple days. I would like to be able to pull up only the lessons marked with the status New and print those by class at the end of each quarter or semester.
