  1. 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.

  2. Display Week Number option

    I enjoy having the option to display what school day it is. My district provides some of our pacing with week numbers. Would it be possible to have the option to display the week number as well somewhere on the page?

  3. Integrate with Microsoft Outlook Calendar

    Since my school uses Microsoft Oulook, my admin send meeting invites and observation appointments through the Outlook calendar. I would like to be able to sync that calendar wtih Planbook.com so I can see my whole schedule for the day in one place instead of having to put each appointment in there manually.

  4. Switch plans between days

    I re-use plans from the previous year but sometimes need to switch the order of lessons to fit the new schedule. It would be great to simply be able to switch plans rather than have to bump, copy, move, and delete current plans in order to switch them.

  5. allow attachments from a Google Team Drive

    We collaborate a lot and post documents that we both use in a Google Team Drive. I would like to be able to attach one of the documents in our Team Drive to my lesson without making a copy in my own Drive.

  6. Copy lessons to multiple classes at once

    I have just created lesson banks that I will copy lessons from throughout the year. The lessons will be used for multiple classes. Currently, I can copy the lessons to each of the classes individually. However, it would be much more efficient for me to have the option of selecting multiple classes at the same time in the "Copy To" section.

  7. 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.

  9. Improve google drive picker

    When I pull up drive to attach files, the organization of my files is different then it is on google drive. I see folders that should be inside other folders. It would be easier to find the files I want if the folders came up like they do in google drive. Instead I see every folder on the first screen even if it is actually inside another folder.

  10. Add event "alert" feature

    Right now I keep two calendars because my school system has this feature and I like to be reminded of upcoming events, meetings, etc. It would be great to use just your program!

  11. Make units automatically update

    I wish when I entered my units and put the dates in that they would automatically be put into my lesson plans. It seems repetitive to have to put the dates in when I putting my units in and then also have to go to each individual day and add the lesson to the unit.

    OR

    I know how many days each unit takes. I wish I could enter a start date and then enter how many days the unit will take and it would automatically put it in my plans.

  12. Align start dates from previous years for easier copying

    Due to school starting later this year it is cumbersome to copy lessons from last year and paste them to this year. Each time I go back to last year I have to back up 4 weeks. Is there a way to align the start dates from last year and this year, so that when I view previous years it will show the same school day that I am working on? For example, if I am working on "School Day 1" and go back to last year it would display "School Day 1" from last year?

  13. Print plans horizontally

    I would like to be able to print my lesson plan pages horizontally since this is how I have them laid out on Planbook.com. Instead, they print vertically.

  15. Share lesson with teachers

    Send a lesson to someone else. So, if I write lesson plans for a particular lesson, I can send that lesson to my teaching partner, who could accept it and put it in her own lesson plans.

  16. Quick hide/show individual lesson

    On the display of the lesson beside the drop down menu you could create a button that you could press to hid the lesson and unhide the lesson. This would make navigating daily lessons tons easier and allow for more versatility in using the planbook for all around planning.

  17. Allow teachers to set default font

    I have to use the drop down menu to change to the font I want for all my classes and everyday-annoying. So please allow teachers to choose their own default font!

  18. More options for standards grading

    In grade book, I would like to have standards based grading. Instead of the traditional A,B,C for grades, it would be a 4 point scale. Overall grade would be calculated based on median of recent grades, decaying weights, power law, mode of recent scores, highest, or average of recent scores (these would be options in a drop down box so the teacher could decide)

  19. Allow lesson sections unique to class

    Different template settings for content areas. Allow math to be different from science lesson plans.
    My state requires certain language arts formats for lesson plans, but the other subject areas don't have a specific template. However I have to apply the language arts template to all my classes using this program. Keep up the good work!
