  1. Writing my name on the headings

    I need to submit my lesson plans to the Office/Principal every week and I need to write my name on the heading. But it only allows for the week, etc. information on the drop down menu

      • Class Periods

        Our Monday schedule is different than Tuesday - Friday. It would be nice if I were able to have a different number of class periods on different days.

        • Half Days/Early Dismissal

          The "days off" feature is great. It would also be nice to add all the half days. Perhaps it could ask after which period the day should end.

            • Locking previous week's lessons

              I have planned over a week's lessons thinking that it was the next week's plans. For example, week of Oct. 3 is the last week I accessed my lesson plans and when I began the next set of lesson planning I did them right over Oct. 3rd's lesson plans (Oct. 10's plans overwrote on Oct. 3 so I lost Oct 3's plans). This is rather frustrating. I would like to lock the previous week's lesson plans once that week is complete. I understand that you can lock each little box but there are a lot of sections to have to…

                • paper clip feature

                  Students do not see the subject of the paper clip like the teacher can. If I post one or more uploaded files it gets confusing since they see only a series of paper clips. My students need to mouse over the paper clip to read the subject.

                    • Changing Background Colors Going Forward w/out Losing Already Written Plan

                      It would be so useful if we were able to change just the background colors of boxes going forward without overwriting plans already written. I started writing some notes in a new plan book last year so I I would remember some of the ideas. Now I'm ready to color code the classes, but it appears I can only color code each day at a time. If I try to color code a specific period for the entire year, it will overwrite everything I have already written for that period throughout the year. :(

                            It would be great to have the day highlighted for what day it is when looking at the calendar. I keep it up on my desk and when I glance over, I have to read through to see which one I am on. Just a light blue/gray color behind it would be great.

                            • Have the note feature be like a post it note on a box in the planbook.

                              Have the note feature be like a post it note on a box in the planbook. It would be helpful to have little post-it notes on certain dates to add more detail, or to remind me of certain things - assemblies, early dismissals, etc. that affect my planning but aren't related to the content. The overall note feature isn't visible so I forget that it is there. A note icon in the box would be great!

                                  • Title Row- every other week repeat option.

                                    Title Row- every other week repeat option. I'm on a A/B weekly rotation and the only option on the title row is a weekly repeat. My work around is to include Sunday, and do a 12 day rotation instead of A/B weekly rotation (the everyother week on the Sunday did not work for some reason-- I had text repeating on Thursdays, and then Wednesdays).

                                    • I work part-time in a school with A/B rotation and only work A days. i would like the playbook to reflect that.

                                      Our school has alternating days, A/B. I only work A days. If the days of the week were ordered Mon, Wed, Fri, Tues, Thurs, that would allow me to fill in plans for a 2-week period in the same space as for one week.

                                        • Allow user to set the date for beginning/ending counting days of school, so planbook can include PD/workdays before first day of teaching.

                                          Uncouple link between planbook start date and school days counter. Create independent field where user enters date for 1st of school and last date of school. Counter then uses those dates to calculate what day of school. Also, "days off" marker continues to prevent counter from being advanced.
