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

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
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

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

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

I would rather allow a student to submit late, with a small point penalty as a disincentive, than to bar them from submitting it. The system would automatically assess a point penalty when an assignment is late. You would need four boxes:
1. penalty amount
2. score unit (% or points)
3. time amount
4. time unit16 votes

When posting a document to a discussion group it gives the students a button that will download the file for them. There are two issues with this approach - They may be on a device or in a location where saving is not appropriate, helpful or available (on an iPad, for example). The suggestion is that we give them more than one button - perhaps a "View" and a "Save As"12 votes

Allow an instructor (and even the student) to view a plot of any particular student's overall grade as a function of time. This would enable us to see if a student performed better in the class at the beginning of the semester, at the end, or fairly constant throughout. Allow it to be compared with a trend line for the highest and the average grade in the class. In addition to providing insight to individual student circumstances, it would also help show if the course is well paced or if some portions of the course might be taught too quickly or without enough detail.

Toggle Current Progress for Students Performance
When setting up a course, I have no idea what students see when they submit an assignment so I can help them or test that it's working, even in student view. At least let us see the box that pops up when they hit the submit button. Ideally, the instructor should have a "dummy student" account to test submission and grading procedures.11 votes
