Allowing you to adjust the default setting when pasting links into your plans.
I want to be able to quickly paste a link into myplans. I use my plans to teach from and present from so I want to quickly then open the link while teaching. If it opens in the same window (the default setting) then I have to go back and relog into my plans. I would prefer to just have the default setting to be opening a link into a new window. Then I can skip the step of clicking on the link and editing it in the plan window.4 votes
An auto-save feature when we are typing plans over an extended period of time. We have lost lots of work several times because it doesn't auto-save.4 votes
Create a Lesson Bank
I'd like to see a "holding tank" where I could store lessons. Within this archive, units and lessons could be fleshed out, shifted, shuffled, grouped, labelled and organized.488 votes
Make it so that links automatically open up in new windows.
When you post links to websites directly into your plans, when you click on them it opens it in that same window which then gets rid of your plan book. It would be more convenient if the links opened into new windows so you could still have your Planbook open. There is a way to go into settings and change this for every link, but you have to do it for every link you cut and paste into your plans. I'd prefer for new window to be the default.2 votes
Allow Lesson Headings/Titles to also have their own font/format
You have various formats and colours for much of the information which is excellent, and the word LESSON is in bold, so to distinguish it, I would also like to be able to select a font/colour/format for the actual lesson title.2 votes

Save to Microsoft Word
With this feature, you would be able to import your lesson plans into Microsoft Word this way you can adjust fonts for ones that fit your style. Also with this feature once it is imported into Word you can resize your font, this way you have a better opportunity to fit your week's worth of lessons on a 2 page spread. Currently when I print to PDF it is multiple pages. This is great for those you have to print their lessons and display on their desk for the week and for those who like to see lessons on paper.429 votes

Add a To Do list
I would love to see a to do list section! Not attached to a single class or lesson but at the top, similar to the notes. Even the notes section would work for this if there were check boxes so that I could check things off as I finished. This would be a fantastic place to keep things that need to be done at school like copies, pages to print, lamination, etc.192 votes
Save to Google Drive

Add limits to Student View
You can limit future days of viewing lesson plans, but all my past days are available to see. It would be really nice to limit sharing to include options to limit past days.
Also would like to limit to only showing current day, and/or lessons marked as "ready".57 votes

Print Option - One lesson per page
It would be helpful if teachers could set a range of dates and then print out a series of lesson plans - one class and one day per page. We could then print hard copies of several lessons without doing it one class and one lesson at a time.20 votes
Apply template to multiple classes
I have some classes that are similar but not exactly the same, so they need to be different classes but could have the same templates. It would be nice to only have to make the template once for all three classes instead of making it for all three classes separately.66 votes
A single template can now hold information for all lesson sections, and can be applied to multiple classes across multiple school years! You can also schedule a single template for multiple days of the week, attach files to a template, and add or remove a template from individual lessons.
Paste an image from my computer into lesson plan
I would absolutely LOVE to be able to use an image from my computer to paste into my lesson plan. I do not like the option that I can ONLY paste an image from the internet!4 votes
You can now upload your local image files to your planbook.com account, and choose to either attach or embed the image in your lessons. Hope that helps, please let us know if you have any questions. Thanks!
