  1. Different Layout for Specialty Teachers

    Specialty Teachers teach one to five sections of each grade level, so is there a way we could make the columns be the grade level instead of the days of the week? We need a way for specials teachers to use this easier... For example, I teach 303, 302, 306, and 304 all from 9:30-10:20 on four of the five days of the week. Right now I have to copy and paste or "extend" the class to copy them over... but I would LOVE to be able to just use the columns for each grade level but still with this…

  2. Create new category for student pull outs

    As an elementary teacher I deal with students being pulled from my room for reading/resource/ELL/ Speech/OT/PT etc. It would be nice to be able to see these things in my schedule when planning curriculum. I've tried using the events idea but it doesn't work.

  3. Print My List descriptions independently

    While the standards description might not be necessary on the lesson plans, the description for "My List" items might be. It depends how you use that section I suppose. In my case, I'd like to be able to have the descriptions for "My List" items, but not the standards. Also, it would be nice if one could select default options when printing.

  5. Planner Decor

    I think it would be awesome if we could decorate our own planners- ex. Erin Condren style. Like a fancy electronic planner! Maybe electronic stickers we can add for parties/staff meetings/ dentist appointments/ holidays/ trainings/ themes. Teachers LOVE to decorate planners! I have a personal planner but I love my plan book! Also if you could include and easy lesson plan template that looks well designed that would be awesome as well (incuding assessment goals).

  6. Create new unit from lesson editor

    It would be nice if when you were making a leson, in the drop down menu to assign a unit, there was an option to "create a new unit." This would make it easy to group sets of lessons that only last for one week.

  7. don't allow print if you're not logged in

    You can currently print even if you're not logged in. What it does is download a file with an error message. (at least this is google chrome). I think I've got my file ready to go only to open it later and realize it's an error message that I haven't logged in. Can you just do a quick check to see if the user is logged in before printing or allowing you to edit a lesson?

  8. Change look of "Student View" link

    Change the look of the "Student View" link, to make it more obvious & present for kids & families. Make it look like the "Login" button, placing it right below the Login button. Maybe add the word "Teacher" in front of "Login"?

  9. Allow multiple units for a lesson

    I love being able to select a unit, however I teach from multiple books, so I would like to be able to specify which vocabulary unit we're on, for example, AND which literature unit we're on, AND which grammar unit we're on. :)

  10. iOS App - Portrait View on iPad

    I would love to be able to view my plans in portrait orientation on the iPad app, especially when looking at a single day.

  11. Create template from lesson

    under lesson actions, have an option to create a template. This would take all the information from the lesson to create a template and give users the option to edit and delete.

  12. Enable deletion of Google calendar events.

    Some events show up in multiple calenders, which crowds my Planbook. I'd like to be able to delete individual events.

  13. 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.

  14. Show unit title in week view

    I noticed there is an option to view the unit id but not the title, I would prefer to have the unit title instead.

  16. Attach files to notes

    I would love to be able to upload files to the notes pages. Sometimes there is a particular document that I want students to practice daily but I do not want to write it in my plans daily. Also, if this option was available on the sub notes page I could upload all important documents such as, class lists, fire drill forms, extra handouts etc.

  17. Integrate with Schoology

    A lot of teachers seem to be using LMS's (Learning Management Systems) more and more. From my research (and now personal use) Schoology is becoming very popular, but one thing you can't do with Schoology is good lesson planning within the LMS. I know lots of teachers would like a one-stop type place to take care of business (which is why you get requests for things like adding a gradebook to your program), and Schoology integrates third party apps for use right within their system, such as Google Drive, Evernote, Remind, Khan Academy, YouTube, just to name a few.

  18. Print without templates

    Add a check box under the print options "Templates" just like you have under viewing so that I can print my lessons with or without the templates. I use the templates mostly for details to give a sub. I don't need them printed for myself when I make a hard copy as they are the same every time.

  19. My Files - Allows views for day/week/month/year

    Any way to archive attachments so we can clear out the MY FILES section? It gets to be too much and I only want to see what I have attached for the day, not all of them.

  20. Emergency Lesson Plans Option

    It would be nice if I could put two weeks worth of emergency lesson plans (undated) in my plan book. My school requires them and there is no place to put them on playbook.

    Thank you!
