      • Add bullets and numbers to the quick edit formatting menu

        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

        • Allow us to see all uploaded attachments one one page.

          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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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…

                        • Minimize boxes in the week view please

                          I would like to see an option to be able to minimize a lesson plan (within the box) when looking at the week view. Sometimes lessons are very long and scrolling all the way down through all my classes is very tedious. It would be nice to be able to minimize all of 5th grade for example when they leave my room for the day.

                          I am picturing something similar to what is available in planbook.com.

                            It would be great to hide details about routine during each period so when I look at my planbook, I don't always see it, but when needing to print sub plans, I can view and print them!

                              All of the edit and setting buttons are distracting at times, especially if I am done writing my lesson plans and just want to view them. It would be great to be able to hide these or create an option for "view mode" where they are not visible.

                                Should be able to set font size, color, etc for a specific class. I hate having to change it for everyday.

                                  It would be helpful to be able to scroll between months so that I can see the last two week of August and first two weeks of September on the same screen.

                                    This could be used to note trimesters or testing periods. You could also note special event weeks etc.

                                    • the ability to combine parts of multiple planbooks into one

                                      I teach at the secondary level and each year I get a different combination of the different classes I teach. I would like the ability to pull plans from multiple previous planbooks into one. For exam, combine my period 1 from the 2012 school year with my periods 3 and 5 from the 2014 school year.

                                      • topic/CCSS banner for long range planning

                                        It would be nice to enter a topic/CCSS for a class to run for a length of time and have it appear as a banner in the class. EX: "Proportional Reasoning" would be at the top of all 1st period Math entries on the dates 9/02 - 9/21.

                                        • Hot Keys

                                          When in the plan editing box it would be helpful to have hot keys.
