I can't see a date anywhere on the printed lesson plans.101 votes
You can do this now by changing the Day Title setting for your planbook:
The date will appear when you print as well.
Certain days and times are very similar each week. The only difference may be the vocabulary words, page number, or title. The routines are the same, so I'd like to see a template option for quicker entry.51 votes
You can use create a template using the repeat options. We have a short video showing how here: http://help.planbookedu.com/knowledgebase/articles/70803-how-to-create-templates
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.44 votes
That should work currently. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you aren’t seein the standard when you hover.
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.43 votes
You can do that now. When editing a plan look for the lock icon above the planning area. You can toggle that to lock the plan to that day.
I would like to be able to split a period vertically to show differentiated lessons for different groups of students during the same period.42 votes
You can insert a horizontal line now to split a period. Look for the icon that looks like a line in the toolbar.
it would be great if we could bump plans for a single period and have that bump the plans forward from that point on.
If I needed to bump plans for just a single period, but I have plans in future weeks, it would be great if there were a bump feature that move all plans from just that period forward a day or two.41 votes
You can see how to do that here:
You can lock a plan using the padlock icon when you edit. Look for it above the planning area. When you click the icon it will toggle between locked and unlocked.

A feature that keeps track of how many times you use each standard would make it easier to see what standards you have hit that year and how often.18 votes
You can view this now on the standards page:
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.17 votes
If you use the “+” icon (rather then searching) to select standards you can select multiple at a time.
Can you enable users to select which days of the week they would like to copy information to? e.g. I want to select Mon, Weds and Fri.
I would like to be able to select Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays for one particular cell in my planbook, but change Thursdays to spelling tests. Can you create a button that allows users to choose which days they want to copy, and choose this week, or this week and forward?17 votes
You can do that now with the repeating options. Edit Monday and set it to repeat daily. Then select M,Tu,W,F from the day list. Then Edit Thursday and set it to repeat weekly.
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.
our special Ed students are using "Essential Elements "- simplified from the common core standards. It would be great to have those on a drop down menu.12 votes

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.
I would like to see the date on top of each page that is printed. When multiple pages are printed you need to go back and match the pages to the plan book page. If a date was printed on top of each page it would be so very helpful!12 votes
This can be set up in the Advance Settings for your planbook. Here’s information on how to do that.
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?12 votes
We have those standards now. They are in the Organizations section when selecting standards.
We need a way to EASILY move days of lessons to correct dates when we miss school days because of weather.12 votes
You can use The Cubby to move entire days:
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”.
In our clusters, we share work, so when one teacher has mapped out the semester for a course, it would be nice to be able to copy it and then make it your own and make adjustments.11 votes
You can email email@example.com 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.
