    i would like an introductory lesson for using PlanbookEdu. I feel as if I am figuring everything out by trial and error.

  2. Can we have the date next to the day of the week?

    It would be nice to have the date listed at the top next to each day so I don't have to keep going to my other calendar to put in special events.

    You can do that now. Go to “Planbooks” in your blue navigation bar, and then click “Edit” by the planbook you are working on.

    Under Advanced Options, you will see a section to change the Day Title. There are several options to include the date.

  3. In the standards drop down menu, have a check mark box by each so you can add multiple standards at one time. Like the CCSS Math prac.

    Putting a check mark box by each standard so you can add multiple standards at the same time, rather than having to add them individually.

  7. mark standards once used

    There are many standards we must use. I would love to see some way to mark off the standard once it is used. Maybe have the standard turn a different color once its been used to help teachers keep track of what standards were and weren't covered

  10. I have multiple grade books, and would like to see the name of the grade book I have open

    When the grade book is open I would like to the its name at the top of the page somewhere. I teach Spanish and have multiple grade books and sometimes I write my plans in the wrong book. I don't think I would do that if I saw the title of my grade book at the top.

    When planning in the weekly view, you can have the name of your planbook displayed, instead of “Week of…”

    Click on “Planbooks” in the blue navigation bar, and then “Edit” by the name of your planbook. Under "Advanced Options, you will see a section called “Title”. Set this to “Name Only”, and the name of your planbook will appear on your weekly view.

    If you want the date as well you can include it with the day title. Look for that option in the same Advanced Options area.

  11. Freeze a plan

    I would like to be able to freeze a plan such as a field trip so that when I bump the plans go around the frozen plan. We plan field trips and assemblies far ahead of time and I want to freeze them in place.

  12. Hover over standards to see text.

    After I add standards to a lesson, it would be nice to be able to hover over the added standard to see the text therein.

  13. cloud storage

    I would like to be able to store files, so I could place files from home or school in one storage area to add to plans. that would allow me to access them from any location when creating plans.

  14. Add Blooms and/or Marzano

    Could there be a place to check off blooms taxonomy and/or the Marzano learning strategies? Maybe add them in like the standards are added?

  17. Can you show the date (e.g. 21 Jan) at the top of EVERY day on the default week view?

    It would make entering "school calendar" (interruptions for assemblies, different schedule rotations, due dates) info MUCH easier!

  18. Add elementary options for reading groups, learning stations, math groups, and space to write nes and or activities

    There are so many activities,testings, grouping, pull outs, pull ins and more going on hourly and daily in an elementary classroom that changes depending on the day or week at hand. Especially for the intercity classroom where students are academically behind by grade(s).

    You can do that now using The Cubby. It will let you copy/move single plans or entire days between planbooks. All the plans, attachments and standards (assuming you have the same standards selected in your new planbook) will be included.

    You can see more on how to do that here:

  20. Add periods anywhere not just at end

    Its frustrating when I cannot add a period anywhere because sometimes my plans get bumped on accident and I have to reconfigure my whole schedule.
