  1. Allow 12 or 24 time format

    This reduces lesson title: 3A English 1:50pm - 2:30pm ----> 3A English 13:50-14:30. Also allow option to hide am/pm

  2. Unit Template

    Just as there is the option to have a lesson plan template, it would be great to have a unit plan template as well.

  3. 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.

  5. Print dates at top of every page

    When I print a weekly plan, the second page does not have the dates on the top of the page. I am continually having to write the dates in at the top for each day. It would be nice for it to be a feature "include dates on all pages"

  6. Copy or Add Year - Select lesson sections / attachments

    When importing lessons from another teacher, you get the lesson, the standards and the notes. I would like to choose what part I want to import. Most the time I only want to share the lesson, not the notes as they are specific to my class.

  7. Upload files from the cloud - Microsoft Onedrive

    Uploading from onedrive would save much time and energy. Right now I have to download a file from onedrive, save it in my downloads and then upload to planbook. That's ridiculous. I should have the option to upload directly from the cloud.

  8. Color change as date passes

    I wish that a day that has passed would be paler colors or grey version so that when I glance at my plans I can easily see what I need for today in the bright regular colors. The past days could still show but not look exactly the same as current and future days.

  10. Open in new tab when pasting links

    Make the default option for a hyperlink 'open in new tab' when pasting the link directly on to the text (great shortcut, btw!)

  11. Link Assessments to Lessons, Not Dates

    I have added in my lessons and assessments, but when I had to "bump" the lessons, the assessments did NOT move... So now I have to go in and manually edit the dates for all 15 of them!! Ugh! It would be most helpful if an assessment could be tied to a specific lesson. The "lesson" that day just happens to be a test or quiz. This way, if you bump lessons, EVERYTHING shifts.

    If the lessons have a unique lesson identifier, then the assessment could be attached to that lesson.

  12. 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…

  13. Unit Templates and Long Range Planning

    Personalized Unit Template - a unit template that included objectives for lessons in the unit, mapped out in the sequence they should be taught. Perhaps even connecting unit topics in a course template that promotes long-range planning for teachers.

  14. 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!

  15. Save lesson plans that get pushed beyond the end of a class instead of deleting them.

    Every time I have to bump lessons back, lessons are deleted at the end of the class. I would like planbook to NOT delete them, but rather save them and add them back to the end of the term if I delete days. Currently when I get to the end of a term I have blank boxes where I USED to have lessons.

  17. 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!

  18. 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.

  19. Allow to type in hex codes for colour

    When trying to colour code my planbook, I'd like to be able to be specific with my colour choices by typing in a hex code instead of choosing from the colour picker. This also allows me to use the exact same colour choice when matching text to class colours.

  20. Teacher search by state/subject

    I'm teaching Arkansas History for the first time this upcoming year. I'd like to find other similar teachers in our state that may be using planbook.com and might be willing to share lessons. The only way to accomplish such a request is to be able to search for teachers by subjects and ask if they'd be willing to share or collaborate. I also teach German which isn't too common in Arkansas so it would be nice to collaborate with teachers of other states where German is more prevalent. With all of the technology we have, it is a shame that…
