  1. I need the option for a column on the right just like the title period column that goes on the left.

  2. Minimize boxes in the week view please

    I would like to see an option to be able to minimize a lesson plan (within the box) when looking at the week view. Sometimes lessons are very long and scrolling all the way down through all my classes is very tedious. It would be nice to be able to minimize all of 5th grade for example when they leave my room for the day.

    I am picturing something similar to what is available in planbook.com.

  3. Hide details to each period for a sub

    It would be great to hide details about routine during each period so when I look at my planbook, I don't always see it, but when needing to print sub plans, I can view and print them!

  4. Set font preferences for a period.

    Should be able to set font size, color, etc for a specific class. I hate having to change it for everyday.

  5. A banner above the plan that can be stretched for any time period.

    This could be used to note trimesters or testing periods. You could also note special event weeks etc.

  6. View Button

    All of the edit and setting buttons are distracting at times, especially if I am done writing my lesson plans and just want to view them. It would be great to be able to hide these or create an option for "view mode" where they are not visible.

  7. the ability to combine parts of multiple planbooks into one

    I teach at the secondary level and each year I get a different combination of the different classes I teach. I would like the ability to pull plans from multiple previous planbooks into one. For exam, combine my period 1 from the 2012 school year with my periods 3 and 5 from the 2014 school year.

  8. topic/CCSS banner for long range planning

    It would be nice to enter a topic/CCSS for a class to run for a length of time and have it appear as a banner in the class. EX: "Proportional Reasoning" would be at the top of all 1st period Math entries on the dates 9/02 - 9/21.

  10. Track changes to entries

    It would be nice to be able, as an administrator, to right click an entry when it is open for editing and see a history of changes.

  11. Make entries un-editable once date of entry is passed

    I need to be sure that historical data cannot be altered, can the workbook be set up so that as soon as a date has passed any entries for that date lose the edit facility?
    It could still be copied and pasted into the future and become editable again.

  15. I would like to track custom standards for individual students. I use planbook for small class with repeated practice of task (standards).

    I am using planbook as my my lesson planner for pilot classes of 2-6 individual. The instruction is divided into several phases and each phase has several specific task. The task are practiced multiple times until performed correctly. I would like the ability to track the amount of days a task is practiced for each student. The students may practice different task than the other students on any given day. The only way I can work it know is to have multiple lesson plans for each student. That isn't ideal because they do share other class periods. Or, I have…

  18. Embed slide shows or online video

    The ability to embed online videos or other media into a daily lesson. So that when the plan book is shared online embedded items like Google slideshows or YouTube videos can be seen within the lesson text.

  20. List

    It would be great to have a place to attach a list of things I'm thinking about, ideas, to do stuff that don't have to go directly on the calendar until I'm ready. I'm new to this site, so maybe that exists, but I don't see it here.
