Uploading files for viewing by students is a useful feature, but does not provide the instructor adequate control. In particular, if a file (such as a PDF of a classroom lecture) is updated, the older version cannot be replaced (although it can be added under a new name). I file management page would be helpful.98 votes
Enhancement Request #1049—Replace Files with Same Name. This has been ranked as a high priority enhancement. You will be notified upon implementation.
Currently, TA office hours display by however they're entered - so if Friday's hours are entered in the first line and Tuesday's are on the second line, Friday's display first. Once saved, they should sort according to day of the week, not how they were entered.85 votes

This would include instructors, TAs, and students. It might also be a good idea to make this feature optional.68 votes
This is a great idea. I have added it to the Redmine system
Enhancement Request #907
Improvements were released in August 2012 but additional improvements are planned.
Enhancement Request #4110
Allow sections from the same course, but taught by different instructors, to be combined into a single LS course!
We "team" teach the same course (several instructors, same course) - in blackboard we could combine the sections together so that the students had access to all materials provided by all professors. One stop shopping! Make this happen in LS.55 votes

I really need teams functionality. I know that is on the drawing board. I use team-based-learning and the the digital delivery of team work is awkward when I can't group students into teams. This should include a team PEER ASSESSMENT (team maintenance) tool either in the team section or in the exam section.45 votes
You now can create groups from the Course Home page. We are still working on making these groups work with assignments and exams.
Enhancement Request #1615
Ability to compare available times, or sign up for a particular time to meet with the instructor or TA. Schedule online chat (if LearningSuite had online chats).37 votes
When we have group projects, the groups will present on different dates. I would like to either be able to create an assignment not attached to one date, or be able to assign different due dates for the various groups.37 votes

On gradebook there needs to be the possibility for 0-point value assignments and scores with negative scores.35 votes
This is on our list of things of features. Closing to be reopened at a later time.
We are concerned with comma-separated values in the fill-in-the-blank answers. We are wondering if it would be possible to change that to semi-colon delimited instead so their students can put in their high-dollar amounts in their fill-in-the-blank questions.-Accounting34 votes
Thank you for your request.
When TAs send an email to the students in the class through LS, allow them to select their personal email account or the generic TA email address set up by the instructor.30 votes

Ability to provide textual information about the categories of different kinds of assignments or grades.
I want to be able to tell students something about that particular category of assignment or exam that is common to all assignments in that category. My work-around is to tell them on the first time they encounter an assignment from that category, but that seems less good because it is confusing about whether it applies to just that assignment or to all assignments in that particular category.26 votes

Currently, in order to change the due date and time for an assignment, I have to click into the assignment, and repeat the process for each assignment. I supervise 15 sections of the course, and have 5 different due dates and times for each assignment. The assignments page should show the due date and time the same way it shows the points available, so you can edit it on the one page instead of having to go into each assignment. This would literally save me hours each semester.23 votes

Have Learning Suite generate unique, persistent links to exams so that the links can be referenced in emails or on course sites.21 votes
Thank you for your request
This requires a fundamental rewrite of Testing Center software, so the release date cannot be determined at this time.
The due dates for our assignments vary based on individual section. To allow flexibility, all assignments are currently due last day of class. I would prefer being able to hide this information to avoid confusion.17 votes
thank you for your enhancement request to hide posts until a certain date or hide assignments.
It would be really nice if student photos were displayed under the "BYU Grades" tab. It would help to learn names, and would eliminate the need to go to the class schedule to put a name to a face when the grades show that students are struggling.16 votes
