Add limits to Student View
You can limit future days of viewing lesson plans, but all my past days are available to see. It would be really nice to limit sharing to include options to limit past days.
Also would like to limit to only showing current day, and/or lessons marked as "ready".
I'm not sure if this is just old and hasn't been updated, but these features exist. You can edit the sharing options to include only that day's date or today's date+1, this week, this week+1, etc. You can always mark lessons as finished and then go to the sharing options and make lessons marked as finish not viewable. You can make it so only lessons that are marked as "ready" are viewable. This solves pretty much every issue anyone has talked about in the comments. This needs to be marked as completed.
I would love to time release my lessons or even just the assignment so that students are unable to view a lesson or assignment until that day or that class.

Expand the student view of future lessons to be more narrow than "current" week. It is needed that future lessons need to be hidden for current day (starting at say, 2pm, but adjustable).
Too many students work ahead when some HW is still in process until the day's end. It causes problems when changes are made at the end of the day.
I would like to only have the current day shown to the students, I frequently adjust the next days lesson so if a student knows they are going to be absent, what they are seeing may not be what we will actually be doing this year in class.

Options for students or administrators to view only current week, or current and upcoming, or just one day at a time.

I'd like to see the sharing option for lessons up to the current date only, without showing lessons past the current date.

I love your program. I would love to be able to see the Day (My school is on Day A, B... schedule) when I am on List Mode. Also, I wish we could check off that students would only be able to see up UNTIL that particular day and not the whole week.

I want my administration to be able to view an entire weeks' worth of lessons at one time, but I don't want my students to be able to see assignments, etc. ahead of time. I wish there were two separate views: Administration View and Student View and I wish that I had the option of only allowing students to see the current day.

When I send a link for someone else to view my plans, they can view all of my past weeks as well. I would like an option to only be able to view the current week (or whatever I choose) and not the past weeks.

I am a middle school teacher in Minneapolis (7th grade math) and am new to your program. In the past I have been making my lesson plans avail (posted on my website) to students every day at the END of the day, and I am very excited about using your program to let my students view my day's lesson plans at the end of the day, and NOT having to type it separately into my school website (which I now do every evening).
One question, though... on "student view" I see that you can set it for them to see the current week, or for a number of future weeks. Ideally, I do NOT want my students to view any of my upcoming lesson plans (as they many times change, from day-to-day, as I adjust based on how the students are doing in class). Is it possible to create an option to simply toggle each particular "day" on or off from being available in student view, so they don't see ANY of my upcoming lessons? I want the students & parents to know what we did (especially students who might have missed class that day for some absence reason), but I do not want them to see the next day's lesson plan.
This could also be handled with the option of a simple "on/off" toggle switch button on each lesson. I have this functionality with our school's grading program parent portal, so that I can enter an assignment earlier, but it doesn't show up on the portal until I click the toggle-switch button to turn it "on" for parent viewing. (This works great for our grading portal because I can enter some grades, but don't have to worry that some students are showing up as "no grade" simply because I haven't graded/entered that student's assignment... I get a lot less calls from parents wondering where "their" child's grade is.)
Ideally, I would like to be able to toggle the day's lesson info "on" right after school lets out, so that students/parents can access it at home as they begin working on, or have questions about, their homework.
I would like the ability to select the exact beginning date and ending date of my plans that I would like my parents to see. For example, I may want to send a whole week of plans and the following two days only of the next week.
