  1. Choose which Tab is open by default.

    I enjoy planbook. One of the advantages is that I can create a "substitute" tab, where I list all my directions that will never change (procedural stuff, locations, times, etc) and not have to repeat that whenever I make sub plans. When I print sub plans, though, those directions end up coming AFTER my lesson directions. I want it to come before.
    I know I can move the tabs around so the "sub" tab is first, but then when I go in to make my lesson plans every day, the sub tab is the tab that is automatically open. That…

  2. School Day counter by quarter or semester

    I teach quarter, semester, and yearlong classes and would like to be able to see which day it is during each class.

  3. Allow student grouping tags

    Add a feature that will allow for teachers to identify testing subgroups when adding differentiated strategies. This would allow a quicker, easier way to provide evidence of intentional differentiation for subgroups (Gateway or Academically Gifted, 504, IEP, African American, ELL, Native American, etc) as districts are beginning to require that teachers have this documented in their plans.

  4. Enhance student announcements

    I would like to suggest some suggestions for the Student Announcement feature:

    1. Show a note in the teacher admin that an announcement exists. This could be a simple box at the top of the screen with "Student Announcement Visible". Then, clicking on the link will take you to the announcement.

    2. An announcement section. It would be nice to have canned announcements that can be saved and reused again.

    3.Ability to set the start date/time and end date/time of a given announcement.

    1. Ability to show specific announcements to given user/group.

  5. Grades - Show title on hover

    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.

  6. Allow lesson copy from units within 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.

  7. Mobile Apps - List view for Students

    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

  8. Add bitmoji

    I'd like to change the blank avatar picture to my teacher bitmoji I'm using in my virtual classroom. Maybe this can be done? I'm a newbie. I saw the gravatar info and that was too complex for me. If this hasn't been tackled, I'd love to see it added.

  9. Attachments auto loaded to 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.

  10. Organize links to videos and other material

    When adding the lesson, have a separate area to put the links. There are times I want to go back to a link, but I have to scroll through weeks of plans before finding the link. Have a way to create a link database. Links to YouTube, etc..

    When you put in a due date on a Google Assignment, that is the day it appears on Planbook. However, I need it to appear on Planbook on the assigned day.

  12. Allow us to set a time zone.

    Currently, when I enter a 'To Do' item, it displays the previous day's date, as I am in a different time zone to the USA!

  13. Add attachment to To Do list

    Sometimes there are emails or notes sent to me from someplace and I would like to be able to put on the "To Do" list so I can refer to it for exact information instead of writing-in all the pertinent information and people that are involved in the "To Do".

  14. generate

    The terminology of the word generate can be confusing. It gives the impression that each time you click that (generate) button, it will show a new code because of the term generate. Even though the codes remain the same. Thank you for considering changing the language of this feature.
    Also, please consider putting the "Generate Join Code" option under sharing options, instead of / in addition to students. Thank you!

  16. allow attachments after each section of a lesson

    Up until the school year 2020-21 it was possible to attach a document at the end of each section. You could attach a worksheet in homework or post notes in the notes sections. Please bring this feature back.

  18. allow substitutes to view google events

    When giving the link for a substitute to use, it would be helpful if our google events would still show up for them to see. For instance, I have google meets linked to my planbook, which show up when I bring up our schedule, but they would not show up with the substitute link. I want my staff or a sub to be able to use these links and show the events as well.

  19. Attendance In each Group?

    Is there a way to embed your attendance in each lesson or group? I have my planbook set up for intervention groups. And instead of having to click add attendance in the drop down for each group, do my students just show up?
