      • Print words that are highlighted

        I have highlighted text in the lesson plan but when printing from the browser, the highlights don't show.

          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.

        • Backward Bump

          Just like we can bump plans, can we bring them all back a day?

            • 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”.

              • 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?

                • 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?

                      Including visual arts standards in the standards available would be awesome!

                        Days without regularly occurring courses such as Conference Day do not provide a way to add a meeting on that day..

                              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!

                                • 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.

                                    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).

                                    • 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.

                                        • Would like to see my planbook and my partner's collaborative planbook side by side

                                          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.
