  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. Allow a 4/5 week view, not tied to month

    Rather than only week or month view, I would love to be able to see the next 4 or 5 weeks at a time. Toward the end of the month it gets cumbersome switching between months ensuring that the lesson topics are flowing correctly. Thanks!

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. Allow multiple periods for a class

    Have the ability to enter multiple start and end times for one class. I teach the same class 4 periods a day. I would like to enter the different start and end times for each of those periods without having to set up 4 different classes. All the lesson plans for them are the same.

  7. Allow replica lessons not tied to date

    I am trying to set up multiple sets so that when I edit one class it will automatically input for the other identical class.

    The problem I'm running into, though, is that we run on a rotating day schedule. When I input information into the "master" schedule and the other set skips out for that particular day, it doesn't push the lesson for the other class...it merely deletes it. PLEASE CHANGE!!!

  8. Multiple teachers to a class

    Allowing multiple teachers in the same class for Special Education teachers and General Education teachers to actively collaborate on lessons within Planbook. This could also work well for any schools that have teams that want to all teach the same thing on the same day.

  9. 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.

  12. view two or three days

    For View, I can choose Day, Week, Month, List.
    More useful than Month, in my opinion, would be Today & Tomorrow
    Or, Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow.
    This would allow teachers to see the day in context.
    So a Monday lesson would be presented with the previous Friday's (without having to flip from one week and the next). Plus I can see tomorrow's plans.

    The Weekly plan squeezes 5 days (M-F) in to 5 thin columns. This option would have 2 or 3 days nicely spaced out in wider columns on the screen.

  13. Open rather than download attached files

    I would like to see the ability to open attached files from my plans rather than downloading them and then opening them.

  15. Apple watch app

    I am purchasing an apple watch and would really love to see my planbook on the watch. Do you have plans to make updates to the app to accommodate this? i use the app on my phone all the time and can't live without it. The addition of watch capability would be amazing.

  16. Copy Text Formatting

    I would love to be able to highlight some text, then click on the "format painter" button to quickly copy the formatting of the text (size, font, bold, centre-aligned, etc.) then highlight a second section of text and "paste" that formatting onto existing text. Microsoft Word has a similar feature called "format painter".

  17. Download all attachments

    At the end of the year I want to download all the attachments to lessons. It would be so much work to go through and individually download them all. Please help out with this?

  18. Allow all attachments to a lesson to be printed when the lesson is printed, rather than having to download each attachment separately.

    I already have all the attachments to my lessons on my computer. I was hoping that by uploading them to my plans in Planbook I'd be able to hit print and my lesson and all attachments would print. It doesn't make any sense for me to have to download the attachments or go back into my computer and print those separately when I could just write my lesson plan in Word instead of Planbook and paste in the things I want to add (like posters, handouts, etc.) so it's all in one place.

  19. Allow a lock a template to day option

    From a template, add the ability to "Lock It" to the day, such that bump/extend do NOT shift other lessons over the template on the locked days.

    I have planning at different time each day. I teach title reading and we take the same day off a week for each class to allow for planning. For example, I have Monday off every week for a certain class. For another class, my day off is Tuesday. If enter that as a no class day, that time block doesn't show up in my lesson plans. A sub would look at that and…

  20. App for Mac Laptop and Desktop

    An app for Mac laptop and/or desktop to work offline.
    Wifi in schools are notoriously unstable. It also would eliminate the hassle to log on permanently. Thanks!
