How can we improve PlanbookEdu?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. List

    It would be great to have a place to attach a list of things I'm thinking about, ideas, to do stuff that don't have to go directly on the calendar until I'm ready. I'm new to this site, so maybe that exists, but I don't see it here.

  2. off day

    Be able to automatically select if an off day is shaded (say in gray) to make it easier to see when making plans down the line.

  3. Title period seen on each daily plan

    I know you can print each day with the title period but it would be good to see the title period section while editing in the daily view option.

  4. Make the first hightlighting color "None"

    In the highlighting color box, make the first choice "none". (Top left) Sometime getting the text back to white/none requires going to the bottom right corner which depending on screen and placement is sometimes difficultly.

  5. Set a repeating event for a limited number of repeats--twice, three times, etc.

    Sometimes I have events that don't repeat for the entire year, but rather for a few weeks or months. It would be great to be able to set an end date when the repeats stop.

  8. Create an interface for Office 365

    All students & teachers in ND have an Office 365 account through our state PowerSchool system. Our school uses Planbookedu for our lesson plans, but we would like it to integrate into Office 365 Calendar feature, allowing students access to their OneDrive accounts as well as teacher lesson plans. We are trying to streamline things and would like to continue to use Planbookedu, but it with the calendar in O365 it becomes redundant. Thank you for your consideration of integrating the two.

  9. print

    With the new teacher evaluation standards, reflection on lessons is a key to successful reflections. It would be nice to be able to print the notes with the lesson page for documentation to administration in our district.

  11. Add an annual view feature to see general breakdown of the year

    Right now I break down each book onto a spreadsheet before I enter it into planbook. It would be great if there were a calendar view option where I could just see the general lesson title/idea and nt have to go to each week. It would greatly help with planning and adding outside activities to lessons.

  12. Read receipts for plans sent through planbook

    Wouldn't it be great to know when your department chair or administrator has opened and or read your planbook. This way you know if they are going to be prepared to talk about your lessons (or if they haven't seen them at all)?

  13. Multiple planbook rotations in one planbook

    I teach in the Media Center. I see ONE class from each of 6 grades (K-5) each day. Some grades have 3 classes, some have 5. My rotations are always the same FOR EACH GRADE, but with the different number of classes I am not on a 3, 4, or 5 day rotation. How can I easily set up my calsses?

  15. Mark Snow Days without leaving the plans blank

    We were told we cannot leave blanks in our plans for snow days. They want to be able to see that something was planned for that day - modifications to plans must be seen. I had been using MS Word, so I just used the strikeout option. I do not know what to do now that I started using Planbook. I may have to go to back to using MS Word.

  16. Find & Replace editing

    I include pull-out groups on my planbook with students listed (I.e. who is going to Title 1 Reading or ELD Group). However, if a student is removed from the group (or moves away), I have to manually go in and edit all of the entries. Or in another situation, I wanted to change an abbreviation I used so that it would be clearer to others viewing my lesson plans. Being able to do a "Find & Replace" (like in Word documents) would really help!

  17. Automatically forward Planbook to a specific email address

    It would be great to automatically send my planbook to my administrator each week on a certain day. Please help. I am new to Planbook, so this could be a feature I just do not know about.

  18. Better Administrative Tools

    * Be able to export the planbook with COMMENTS.
    * Have the same navigation tools when viewing teacher planbooks as teachers (i.e., arrows to go forward or backward a week, etc.)

  19. Reflection

    Add or link a section for reflections on how the lesson went. When I go through my plans for next year I want to remember what worked, what didn't, or ideas I had for making changes.

  20. set size for period blocks

    Make the period blocks a set size and have the text fit to the space of the block so the plans look more uniform when printed.
