  1. Notification system for graded assignments.

    It would be cool to have a notification system for graded assignments. The idea being that you could click on an assignment and ask to be emailed when your grade has been entered.

    Thank you for your request. It has been added to the enhancement ticketing system and listed as a high priority. Enhancement Request #6926—Grade Notification Settings.

  2. Assignment due email reminder

    It think it would be useful to add an option of receiving an email reminder one day before an assignment is due.

  3. Allow assignment submissions via Cloud services (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.)

    Canvas has that really nice feature that fetches assignments directly from cloud services. That'd be really nice.

    Thank you for your enhancement request. It has been added to the ticketing system. Enhancement Request #7644 – Upload from Google Drive

  4. Have the combined schedule default to 7 days showing after chosen

    Duplicate:
    1. Log in to Learning Suite
    2. Click on combined schedule
    3. Click on 7 days to show 7 days (top right corner)

    After I log out or move pages and then go back to the combined schedule, I would like it to have stayed on showing the 7 days, rather than going back to 5 days and always reclicking on 7 days.

    Thank you for your enhancement request. It has been added to the enhancement ticketing system. Enhancement Request #7878—Default 7-Day Calendar.

  5. Accept Mac .pages extension for document uploads

    Assignment uploads currently only accept Microsoft Word and PDF documents. This means Pages (Apple's equivalent of Word) documents have to be converted/exported as Microsoft Word or PDF documents before the assignments can be uploaded. This creates extra hassle for Mac- and Apple-user students who need to upload assignments, even pressuring them to use a different word processing application.

    Adding the acceptance of .pages extensions in addition to .doc, .docx, and .pdf would make the site more friendly to the Mac- and Apple-user portion of the student body.

  6. sort grades by date

    it would be great to be able to sort assignment by date, regardless of category. the categories are nice for grading, but its really easy to miss an upcoming assignment because its hidden in a category at the bottom that is rarely used

    Thank you for your suggestion to improve Learning Suite! Your enhancement request has been added to our ticketing system. Redmine #3616.

  7. Allow larger files to be attached to assignments.

    My students need to submit large, multi-file assignments for semester-long projects. Currently, the Learning Suite won't accept them, and returning USB flash drives at the end of a semester is a hassle.

  8. Be able to submit assignments in Learning Suite through the BYU app

    Just a quick little fix. If you could submit assignments through to Learning Suite the BYU mobile app that would be awesome!

    Sometimes for my classes I need to submit a picture of something and it would be so nice to be able to upload straight from my phone instead of having to email it to myself and then submitting it from my computer

  9. Learning suite integration with new Microsoft Exchange account

    Create a calendar with all of your class times and locations in your Microsoft Exchange email with class location and zoom link if applicable or perhaps to begin just syncing the Microsoft exchange calendar with the learning suite assignments

  10. Don't deleting work unless it is submitted even if it's late

    Don't close an assignment's dialog thus deleting a student's work even if the due date has passed. Only wipe out work when it's been submitted. If the assignment late work should not be deleted. If a document is required but a student has written in text it should not be deleted when notifying that a document is actually required.

  11. Add drag and drop support to file submission

    When submitting a file, we currently have to click submit, choose file, and go find the folder where the file is located. It would be awesome to be able to drag and drop a file into the submission box instead, like google drive does for uploads.

  12. Allow Students to Respond to Feedback on Assignments that are Graded

    When TA's or Professors grade assignments and leave feedback on what was wrong, sometimes there are exceptions for specific assignments that justify why an answer was there (e.g. something the professor said was alright in class, TA said the answer was okay in person, etc.) It's a bit annoying to have to email the TA's after to find out A) who graded my file and left the feedback and B) wrtie up an email about a specific error without the assignment and feedback in hand for context.
    Please add a feature where it shows the name of the person who…

  13. Spaces in Assignment Submission Notes

    I would really appreciate it if the notes that accompany assignment submissions could keep the same spacing instead instead of squishing it all together!!! I want my essays to my professors and TAs to look nice and organized, not sloppy!

    This would just be fantastic and maybe not too hard (??)

  14. Items in the assignment listing should be buttons

    Right now, all the assignments in the assignments listing are <div> elements with an onClick event assigned to them. This makes it difficult for screen readers and other accessibility tools to pick up on these items as clickable.

    I have some RSI which makes it difficult for me to use a mouse or trackpad, and I use a plugin called "Vimium" to navigate my browser with vim-like keybindings. It can't detect that these are buttons, so I have to use my mouse which adds a little to my stress.

  15. Show what class an assignment belongs to

    When in the combined schedule, it would be very helpful if the assignment were to show what course that assignment belongs to, as several courses have similar assignment names such as "homework 1"

  16. Allow message forwarding

    Allow a message sent to one person on LS to be forwarded to someone else. I had to message an assignment and didn't know we had a TA, so I sent it to the teacher. Now I need to send it to the TA, and it is very difficult without forwarding.
