  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Create a full version offline app

    The ipad version is great, but I'd love a full version app that could be used offline and would sync once back online. This would be especially helpful for schools with spotty service or rural areas that do not have access to unlimited internet.

  4. Add cycle days to events

    My school runs on a 6-day cycle. I would like to be able to schedule events/activities that happen ONLY on a specific day in the cycle, not a "day of the week". For example, students that have band/musical instrument lessons, or special services like Speech, or "book buddies" once per cycle.
    Right now, I am scheduling them "weekly" just so that I have the information in my lesson plans.

    In scheduling an event like this, could there be an option in the drop down box to schedule on a particular day of the cycle? I know on the “School Year…

  5. Drag and drop classes (schedule) in plan view

    I would like to be able to drag and drop in plan view to change my schedule for specific classes if need be. Right now if I want to switch the 10:00 class and the 2:00 class I have to go into each class and adjust the time with the custom time check box. I would like to drag my 10:00 class down to 2:00 and 2:00 to 10:00.

    I would also like to be able to move from day to day. Right now the move function allows you to move a lesson to a different day but not a…

  6. Allow multiple units for a lesson

    I love being able to select a unit, however I teach from multiple books, so I would like to be able to specify which vocabulary unit we're on, for example, AND which literature unit we're on, AND which grammar unit we're on. :)

  10. Print attachments with lesson

    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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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!

  13. View 2/3 days rather than week

    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.

  15. Lock 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…

  18. 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".

  19. Sync Planbook with RenWeb

    Our school uses RenWeb for all of our management systems. They have a lesson plan section, that is more complicated to use than Planbook. Those of us that prefer to use planbook for all of its wonderful features, have to re-type our plans into RenWeb for the parents and students to see. It would be great if there was a way to import our Planbook plans into RenWeb.

  20. Include centers in a lesson

    I teach preschool and I have to include centers in my plans along with the standard(s) that apply for each center. Right now, I have my daily schedule set up as separate lessons. It would be great if within a lesson (section/time of the day) I could include the centers that I'm doing along with the standard - almost a lesson within a lesson if that makes sense? As it is, I can list the centers and what is happening but all of the standards are lumped together in the standards tab instead of being with each centers actvity.
