  1. Checking off a completed lesson

    I'd love a way to check off the lessons as they are completed. And how about an iPhone app? :D Otherwise, this is the best planning software I've used to date (and as a homeschooler, I've tried quite a few!) Thank you for giving me more time with my family instead of spending all weekend planning my lessons!

      • Move attachments

        It would be great if I could move an attachment to the next day... by dragging and dropping.

                • Set trimester/semester dates and allow a class to repeat.

                  I teach multiple sections of a class each year. It would be nice to set starting and ending dates for the trimester and copy the entire block of plans to the next trimester. For example, I teach chemistry trimester one and then get a new group of students and teach it again trimester two.

                  • Notes

                    It would be very helpful if we had the option to create a link in "Notes" to connect to sites online. Notes is really great for keeping a running TO DO list

                      • Be able to click on a column or row and delete it similar to an Excel sheet, in addition to changing widths.

                        Make it more adjustable like an Excel sheet. I have a column in the center or my planbook that I decided to merge into another column, but there's no way to delete it. If I delete the columns in set up, it just deletes the last one so that I have redo everything manually.

                        • 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.

                          • Modifiable Template

                            -have a search option for standards as well as categories
                            - have a planbook.edu modifiable lesson plan template using the bells and whistles that common core asks for- i.e. higher order questions, gradual release, vocabulary etc.

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                        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.
