  1. Plans above Google Calendar option.

    I wish I could put my lesson plans above the Google Calendars. I love the integration with Google Calendars, but I would like the option to put the plans first, so I can avoid scrolling down.

  2. Ability to color code units

    I'm very visual (and sometimes I break my units up and come back to a few standards from a previous unit). It would be nice if we could color code the unit when it is listed at the top of the lesson, instead of them all showing up highlighted in blue. It would give a good visual as to how many days you have left allotted for that topic.

  5. Quick Add lesson bank item to lesson

    To get a lesson bank lesson to a day on the planner should involve a pop down menu that gives a full listing of lesson bank lessons. Choose and paste.

  6. Add ability to indicate class location

    Not everyone always teaches in the same room. Having the option to list the location of the class on the plan would be very useful, particularly when the location has an impact on the types of activities that can be carried out in the lesson, for example, when a science lesson is held in a regular classroom rather than a laboratory.

  7. Copy - Select multiple lessons

    When in the class section and you show all lessons for importing a lesson, it would be great to click on the previous lesson and it automatically select that date as the starting date and then either ctrl click or shift click for the end range.

  8. Have strategies be searchable

    Have strategies be searchable, like the standards. You can look up which strategies you have used and how often.

  10. Unit plans to include lessons, assignments and assessments

    When creating unit plans, I would love to be able to add my lessons, assignments and assessments, instead of having to go to a separate section. Maybe by offering a check box to indicate if this portion of the unit plan is a lesson, assignments or assessments.

  11. Add a Week Counter

    I love PLANBOOK! I especially love that your team continually updates its lesson planner based on the needs and feedback from your customers. The only other thing I would love to have is a week counter and the ability to view the changing week number under the display of the date and school day counter, as my school paces its curriculum by week. Thank you.

  12. Hide or Skip a lesson in a unit

    Under lesson actions, you should be able to hide (or skip) a lesson. From year to year, sometimes we want to hide or skip a lesson. The lesson bank does not achieve this quickly. I don't want to create a separate place to store them - I want them easily seen with the rest of me lessons within the unit - I just want the option to hide a lesson from a date rather than move the date to something else. Please add a "hide or skip the lesson" option within the lesson actions and also within the lesson unit!!!…

  13. Strategies Display Like Standards

    I wish you could set it up so we could view Strategies the same way we do Standards. There would be a Strategy ID, and the Strategy Description itself. Teachers could choose if they wanted the strategy description displayed.

  14. Print Sub Notes with Plans

    It would be nice to be able to print Substitute Notes along with a day's plans just as we can with regular notes. This way it can all be in one file rather than two.

  15. Automatically number lessons

    It would be helpful if each lesson was automatically numbered (like schools days are automatically numbered). I have a 2 week timetable where I might see one class twice per week for two weeks, but another class I might see 3 times in week one and only once in week 2. This means that these classes are out of sinc - I have to manually number each class so that I know where each one is up to.

  16. Improve the snow day

    There should be a simple option for "snow day" or "unexpected cancellation" for inclement weather or other reasons. Within that option, there should be a simple checkbox to either count the school day or not (this matters to elementary school teachers who count the days and celebrate 100 days). Secondly, there should be an easy checkbox to continue or skip the cycle day. Finally, there should be an easy checkbox of what to do with the lessons (deleted or pushed to the next day or even saved on that day to be used when the teacher can make up the…

  17. Allow assessments to repeat

    I give weekly quizzes in some of my classes and would like to be able to schedule them en masse instead of individually each week. For example, the ability to schedule a quiz every Thursday for a given date range would be extremely helpful. It would also be great if you added a biweekly option.

  18. Show standards not yet assigned

    Allow a report showing which standard items have not been assigned to lessons. This is useful if a teacher jumps around in lessons.

  20. 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.
