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.

PLEASE DO THIS! I just switched from a digital version I had created myself on Word to this. My students LOVE Planbook because they can see due dates and homework and so forth. BUT it is killing me the way this is typed in. I need to SEE the week and be able to navigate and type directly onto the plans. I am considering not using Planbook because of this issue. I cannot tell you the number of times that I have had the box open and typed things and then when I see it in the book, I notice inconsistencies and then I have to go in and open the box and try to fix it, It would be great if you could select the items you want visible for the week (for me that is only homework and notes), and then click some sort of edit button and it would allow you to TYPE DIRECTLY INTO THE SECTIONS. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
I may leave the platform because this is slowing me down. The only reason I have not yet is because the kids love it so much. But it is taking too much of my time.
YES! I used to use CommonCurriculum.com and it allowed up to type directly into the lesson plan without the need for a pop up, which was incredibly helpful when using Copy/Paste functions. I teach multiple different classes with similar formats and constantly opening and closing pop-ups is frustrating.
Stevan Flores, once I have my editing box open the Planbook window doesn't allow me to move it.
My thought on this would be to allow us to edit the lesson right on the page without having to open up the individual days.
Excellent idea. I'm a new user and just noticed that you cannot do this.

I agree, I would really like to edit directly in list view. This is how I do all my long term planning and would really like the ability to edit directly and not have a pop up box appear.

If you are in "Week" view, when you click the next day's lesson the editor pops up. Point to the top blue border (where it says "Lesson"). Click and drag the editor around the browser window. You could scroll the week up using the browser's scroll bars (or your middle mouse scroll-wheel) then drag the editor down the page to see both at the same time.
