  1. Add the dates to the printed lesson plans instead of just the day of the week.

    I can't see a date anywhere on the printed lesson plans.

    • Save as a template.

      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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • split periods for differentiated lessons

            I would like to be able to split a period vertically to show differentiated lessons for different groups of students during the same period.

            • 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.

                      • Summary of how many times you use a standard.

                        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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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?

                            • 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.

                                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.

                                  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!

                                  • 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?

                                      • 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)

                                          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”.

                                        • Being able to copy another teacher's calendar and then edit it as your own, but not change theirs.

                                          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.
