    • Summary View

      Summary view
      Maybe an objective section that is the only portion shown on month view. I want to be able to print my calendar of objectives for administration

      • Be able to change the width of the columns.

        It would be nice to be able to change the width of the columns in my plan book. For some columns, I don't enter much text and so I would like to make them more narrow.

        • Add TEXT COLOR options to the format menu in the quick edit option

          Once my plans are written, many times I need to add a quick note - of course I prefer editing using the double click option. When adding a note I like to make the text red so it draws attention to it.
          In quick editing, currently there is only the option to add background color or highlighting, not text color.

          • Have the name of the planbook you are currently working in on the page somewhere.

            When you are working in a planbook, you cannot see the name of the planbook on the page. I have multiple classes of the same subject but use different planbooks. I have to go back and forth a lot so confusion can set in as to which planbook I am working on.

              • Class list

                I would like to be able to have a class list link at the top of the page. It would be nice to be able to mark which student was absent for the day or the lesson/period.

                • Name on lesson plans

                  I would like my first and last name to be printed next to the "week of ...." on the top of the first page. I turn my lessons in every week, and I have to hand write them on the top. Sometimes I forget, and the principal has to remind people to put their names on the lessons. Not everyone uses this software. This would be an improvement over other software too.

                      • It would be very helpful to be able to set a default font size.

                        Make it possible to set a default font size.

                          I need to use bullets and numbers all the time but I have to go through the slower method of editing. I'd like those options to be included in the quick edit

                            I want to be able to scroll down and see everything I've attached all year. I have a binder with hard copies of everything, but a list in planbook would mean I didn't need that.

                              If you are sharing planbooks, you should have it say at the top somewhere whose planbook you are in, so that you are not typing on theirs by accident.

                              • Default background colors?

                                I would like to set background colors for organizational purposes, but when I drag lessons from one box to another, the color is replaced too. This is a time consuming change. Is it possible to make the background colors defaulted rather than tied to that particular entry?

                                  • Be able to bump just a part of a lesson

                                    Sometimes I do not finish something and need to bump it to the next day. If I could just highlight the part I need to move and have a bump option that would help immensely.

                                    • Edit text in Off Day box

                                      When you select a day as "Off" you cannot edit anything in the box. Often, these are professional development days and it would be very useful to be able to write notes on what was done or planning ideas in these boxes.

                                      This would also be useful if the off day was due to snow. Teachers could write notes about what was planned or what changes need to be made. My school created online snow days this past year and I actually did create lessons students could work on at home. Having space to write in the box could be…

                                      • Notes on days off

                                        I was considering purchasing this product or another one that I like. This one to me is the more user-friendly, but it lacks the ability to place notes on off days. I would like to be able to mark days as teacher work days instead of just off days, so that I can write notes about that day. I would also like the be able to note special events and such.

                                        Also, I would love to be able to mark days as student birthdays with the ability to be reminded of them.

                                        • I need the option for a column on the right just like the title period column that goes on the left.
