Make units automatically update
I wish when I entered my units and put the dates in that they would automatically be put into my lesson plans. It seems repetitive to have to put the dates in when I putting my units in and then also have to go to each individual day and add the lesson to the unit.
I know how many days each unit takes. I wish I could enter a start date and then enter how many days the unit will take and it would automatically put it in my plans.
Make sure that "Units" show up in all lessons within the date range.
Seems like this would be a simple fix!
This would make life so much easier. If we can add the dates to the unit, then those dates should transfer into the plans. I keep checking to see if this is completed... :(
OMG yes! Either of those would totally fix the frustration that I've been experiencing! I'd also love to set a start date and enter how many lessons that I intend, but then also have titles and expectations etc "fall" into the dates for the unit once I've set everything up for the unit/template!!
How are we coming along with this? Since we have the option to put the dates of the unit in it would be nice if it would show in plans for that date. Also, when copying a lesson to another class the unit still does not copy. I had inquired about this last year and was updated that it had been completed.

Have a unit automatically populate in your lessons so you know exactly when you are supposed to finish with it. You should also have the ability to uncheck the unit box when creating your lessons, in case you need to switch gears for holidays and such.
I love this idea as well. It's very tedious to have to do it manually.
Tona--Amy Wilcox posted a similar suggestion "Unit Plan Improvement". We need to unit these ideas and start a voting campaign to get this idea queued to the top!!

Yes! Please do this! I assumed that this functionality would be in place and spent the afternoon trying to figure out what I was doing wrong before realizing it wasn't set up to be this way.
It would be helpful if you could create the units within the classes and then any lessons added would have the option to be automatically added to the unit that the lesson's date corresponds to within the unit date range.
