  1. Allow units to be assigned to multiple classes

    When I design a unit, I can only attach it to one class. I teach elementary specials, and I apply the same unit to multiple hours and days of the week. For example, I have five different first grade classes. They won't stay on the same exact schedule of lessons throughout the year. Eventually, they'll have the same units. Instead of rewriting that unit, I would like to apply to multiple classes.

  2. Shrink to one page print

    I like to have my plans fit all on one page. I would really like to have a way to have a button I can press where it would condense my plans to fit nicely onto one page. This would be very helpful to me as I try to be cautious about my paper use.

  3. Export to Google Calendar

    It would be great to export Planbook to Google Calendar so that students have one less web site to go to and have access to their homework as well as their personnal agenda and goals.

  4. Add additional undo capabilities

    Add an undo button that gives you a drop down of several things that you have done recently. Be sure to include imports, no class days, deletions, etc.

  5. Add "I can" drop down

    We now have to add "I can" statements to our lesson plans. Having a drop-down menu with all these things would be a huge time-saver. T hanks!

  6. Multiple schedules in a school year

    For instance, my morning classes are on a 4-day cycle, and my afternoon classes are on a 3-day cycle. Please change this so we can split the day into multiple cycles.

  8. Folders for attachments

    It would be nice to organize your files into folder so you do not have to scroll so far looking for items

  10. Show multi day lesson once

    When I extend a Lesson It would be great if, visually, it just took up a block rather than repeats everything each day. I am working through a lesson that is intended for three or four days and I'm adjusting it as I go. I just deleted the extended days because I don't want to adjust the lesson three or four times!

  11. See week while typing daily lesson

    If we could see the week while typing in a lesson so we can compare lessons while inputting the information for the next lesson; instead of the overlay design. Although I do like the expanded screen for typing in long lesson plans, it would be helpful.

  12. Directly edit on Week View

    We'd like to be able to click and directly edit in the class lesson box, on the page where you are able to see the whole week at at time.

  13. Sync Planbook with Canvas

    If possible, integrate Planbook with the Canvas learning management system by Instructure. Canvas has a calendar which will indicate what activities/assignments/quizzes are due on any particular day, but by no means does it offer the features, details, and flexibility of Planbook (for example, the ability to extend, bump, or pull back lessons). Planbook and Canvas are both excellent tools for educators, and it would be wonderful if such a merger could happen.

  14. Merge Lessons

    Merge Lesson's. If I do lesson 1 and have extra time and decide to do lesson 2 as well on the same day I want to be able to move subsequent lessons back without losing any lesson information. Putting lesson 3 on the day where lesson 2 was.

  16. Back-up Data to Local Drive

    It would be nice to be able to back-up the data on a local drive. If access to the internet is disrupted during a school day it would be very frustrating and disruptive if you are unable to get to your lesson plans. Also, if you make a major mistake, like erasing a whole class, then you could go back and retrieve the last saved data.

  17. Planner Decor

    I think it would be awesome if we could decorate our own planners- ex. Erin Condren style. Like a fancy electronic planner! Maybe electronic stickers we can add for parties/staff meetings/ dentist appointments/ holidays/ trainings/ themes. Teachers LOVE to decorate planners! I have a personal planner but I love my plan book! Also if you could include and easy lesson plan template that looks well designed that would be awesome as well (incuding assessment goals).

  18. Extend/Bump only certain parts

    Extend/bump only certain tabs of the day. For example: if I have a reading tab and a vocabulary tab, I only want the vocabulary tab to extend/bump to the next day. This would be useful when I only complete part of the lesson.

  19. Sync with Microsoft Outlook

    Since my school uses Microsoft Oulook, my admin send meeting invites and observation appointments through the Outlook calendar. I would like to be able to sync that calendar wtih Planbook.com so I can see my whole schedule for the day in one place instead of having to put each appointment in there manually.

  20. Emergency Lesson Plans Option

    It would be nice if I could put two weeks worth of emergency lesson plans (undated) in my plan book. My school requires them and there is no place to put them on playbook.

    Thank you!
