  1. 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.

  2. Add 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.

  4. Add students to certain periods only

    I love planbook but it's not completely geared towards secondary. I teach high school and we have many periods. I love the feature where you can add students and grades but you can't add certain students to certain class periods. You can only add them to a class only. I would like to keep all my students separated by periods, not all 160 together. It's not practical when entering grades. It's not practical to add a different class for each period if it's the same prep. I want to do one lesson plan but have different periods for that one…

  5. Allow Google Calendar items below plans

    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.

  6. Write-in Standards

    Can you make a write-in option for the standards section? 99% of the time, I use the common core standards that are already available, but every once in a while (SBAC prep, etc), it would be nice to write in "Comprehensive review of grade level standards" or something to that effect.

  7. Allow week to be Mon to Sun

    Many European calendars use a start day of Monday, instead of Sunday. I would like to adjust the calendar to have a start day of Monday so I can see and print the week plans as Monday through Sunday. TY

  8. Allow lesson standards to be applied to Units

    I would like a way for each of the standards I add to an individual lesson plan to automatically be listed in the standards area of my unit plan as well

  9. 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.

  10. Lesson tab should allow immediate typing

    Right now when I open a particular subject, I have to then click on the text field to start typing. It should default to immediately being able to type in that field.

  12. 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.

  13. Show notes for Google Calendar items

    I appreciate the integration of the Google Calendar events! Is there a way that the notes with the Calendar events can be seen on Planbook? Or perhaps a way to add notes to Google Calendar items?

  14. 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.

  15. Use Google Classroom assign date

    Google classroom assignments should show up in planbook for the day they are assigned. Give people the option to choose if they show up on the due date.

  16. Have strategies be searchable

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

  17. 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.

  18. 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!!!…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
