Just add basic word processing. I don't need cutesy "bumping." I'm an adult. Let me simply cut and paste.
Add word processing cut and paste functionality without the cutesy "bumping." We're all adults here. Let's just cut and paste or drag and drop. I need to cut and paste only a sentence from a plan over and over sometimes, and it's infuriating that I have to re-type it because I'm not "bumping" a lesson. What's the point of infantalizing this process and decreasing the usability?2 votes
You should be able to cut and paste now. Is there a problem when you try to?

You can easily clear a day and type in anything you like. Here’s how:
Love this website! Could it be set up so that a class repeats on days of the week instead of every five days, for instance?
Even though the event of the day repeats every 5 days, some weeks skip a day and the repetition is thrown off. I have Spanish every Tues. and Thurs. If I try to repeat the Tues class every 5 days, the first Monday we don't have school puts Spanish on Wed. because it's the 5th day since Tuesday. Clear as mud? Sorry. I know you'll figure it out. :-o)12 votes
It sounds like you have your rotation set to every 5 days. Instead set it to Weekly (which is the default). This will leave the plan on the same day of the week regardless of off days.
Click on “Planbooks” in your blue navigation bar, and then “Edit” by the planbook you are working on. You will see a section marked “Rotation”.

I would like to see the date on the top of each page that I print. When I print multiple dates I need to go back and match the dates.

This can be set up in the Advance Settings for your planbook. Here’s information on how to do that.
I would like to be able to click on a link in a box and have a new window/tab open with that link. A pop up box for sharing links great too!2 votes
Links should open in a new window/tab already. You may have something running in your browser that is preventing that if it isn’t working.
Just like we can bump plans, can we bring them all back a day?6 votes
You can do that now. It will appear as an option when you clear a day. See the Reverse Bumping section here:

I have highlighted text in the lesson plan but when printing from the browser, the highlights don't show.2 votes
To fix that you need to turn on a setting in your browser before you print. The wording changes depending on your browser. It is usually a checkbox labeled “print background colors and images” in the print options.

It would be nice to be able to have a reoccuring activity/lesson/block of time and say to have it repeat on a specific day
Right now when I set up a block of time, I can set it to repeat every 5 days, that works if there aren't any holidays or days off. I would like to be able to set up a block of time to repeat on a specific day. For example my class has a block of time set for Library every Tuesday. I would like to be able to tell planbook to set that block of time for every Tuesday.14 votes
Make sure your planbook is set to the Weekly rotation. This will repeat plans on the same day regardless of off days. The 5 Day rotation option will adjust for off days.
When my partner and I work on our books, we collaborate. It would be really nice if while I am doing my plans, or visa versa, we could see what the other has planned too.5 votes
You can do that by opening the two planbooks in different browser windows or tabs.

You can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll make a copy of the planbook to another account. We’ll need the person who created the planbook to email as well to verify that it is okay with them.

Teacher Notes or "Private" Notes. I share my plans but would love to have a section that does not show up when embedded on my website. I love that I can share my book, but would like the flexibility to make certain things private (such as when fire drills might be).4 votes
We have a notes area that isn’t included when you share your plans:
You can also hide individual plans when sharing:
It’s still there. If the Sunday for “this week” isn’t part of your planbook it won’t appear. For example is your planbook start date is Tue, Sept 2nd the “this week” option won’t appear until the week of Sept 6th.
