  1. Add the standard windows keyboard shortcut for adding a link

    Add the standard windows keyboard shortcut for adding a link (Ctrl + K) to correspond with the linking feature on posts and announcements. We already have standard shortcuts enabled for Bold and Italics. Why not linking?

  2. Put header on each page of printed schedule

    When printing header information for each column in the schedule should appear on each page.

  3. Need to convert hidden columns to not hidden on "Schedule"

    I need to convert hidden columns to visible columns. Once hidden columns are set up (I guess I did it by accident while importing), there's no way to get them to be visible by students.

  4. File management

    I typically organize files by class. For example hw1.pdf is class dependent. Rather than storing all of the files in a flat directory, organization by class would be very helpful. Also, when updating files, please allow for a replace function. Currently we have to go to home, delete the file, then back into the assignment page to upload the new file.

  5. Autosave message drafts

    I use group messages to provide feedback on assignments. Twice today I've had to retype extensive messages because Learning Suite (unlike, say, Gmail) doesn't autosave the text input--once due to a logout even after I clicked the "keep working" button. This would be a very helpful feature to add.

  8. Add Search feature to Question Bank

    Please add a keyword search function to the main page of the Question Bank that will search in all folders and subfolders within the Question Bank, and display all of the results showing on a single page (even if the results are in different folders). Something akin to doing a keyword search in Windows using File Explorer.

  9. Edit syllabus before printing in Distribute tab

    When printing the syllabus from the "distribute" tab there should be a way to make last minute edits before printing.

  11. Instructor resubmission notification

    Allow instructors to indicate if I paper can be resubmitted AFTER the due date so that students can correct work and resubmit for grading. Also, make some change to the icon when a new paper is submitted to alert the instructor that such work has been resubmitted.

  13. Is there a way to do the Originality Check on files emailed to the instructor rather than uploaded by the student?

    Is there a way to do the Originality Check on files emailed to the instructor rather than uploaded by the student? Maybe it exists and I can't find it, but if not it would be very helpful.

  15. Provide a way to print out (to a printer or as a pdf) graded assignments showing comments.

    I need to provide sample student papers WITH MY COMMENTARY in my hiring portfolio. Please give me a way to print papers from the Grader with my inserted comments.

  17. See who has accessed each assignment/exam and how long they were there

    Stats - student time on page, current grade One of the features of the Brainhoney gradebook that is very valuable is the statistics on each student and assignment. I can open the Gradebook and see who has accessed which assignment and how long they had the assignment opened on their screen. Additionally, if I post a reading or a discussion board, even if those activities are not graded, I can see which students have accessed those readings and discussions boards. Having this information available to me helps to close the communication/teaching loop. I know which students have been looking at…

  18. Table Feature -

    The ability to insert a small (basic) table onto content pages and syllabus pages would be extremely helpful for organizing information in a more efficient and effective manner. Lists are great (thank you) but some information really needs tabular form..

  19. Freeze the menu bar on FILES page

    Make menu bar visible on FILES page if the number of files is more than one screen -- similar to Freeze Panes in Excel. When I scroll down through my files, I can no longer see the menu bar.

  20. View Average as Percentage

    It would be really helpful to be able to view the average grade on assignments as a percentage instead of just a pt. value in the normal window (right now, you need to right click on each assignment and choose "view statistics."
