  1. It's a headache to sign in every 2 hours.

    I keep 5 tabs constantly loaded on my computer, and while I'm in school, one of them is Learning Suite. But I hate that it times out every 2 hours. That basically means I have to click through the login every time I use it (after each class). I don't constantly have to sign in to Gmail every time I load the page. And that's the same behavior on all my favorite apps--once the device is trusted, it stays logged in. I would love to skip the unnecessary steps of having to approve the sign-out message and then sign back…

  2. Allow for editing graded assignments on What If Calculator

    When an assignment receives a grade in learning suite, then you can't edit it in the What If Calculator. Sometimes teachers put in temporary grades and then you can't use the what if calculator accurately. Or maybe there was a problem with the grading and you want to see how much your overall grade would be improved if you got some points back.

  3. Allow classes appearing in the 'Combined Schedule' to be rearranged

    Allow for the rearranging of the classes in the 'Combined Schedule' grid view. Currently classes are listed alphabetically (I believe?), without regard to when the classes occur-- it would be great to be able to manually rearrange the class order and then save their new positions.

  4. Ease of use for assignment details

    When clicking on an assignment, the window for assignment details would be easier to work with if clicking anywhere outside the box would close the window -- currently, it's bothersome to click (or tap -- this would especially make things easier for phone use) "close" or the x in the top right corner

  5. Email "all" in a community

    I would like to be able to email the whole community (class) but I have to check each individual manually. Could you add a "select all" button that would auto check all the boxes?

  6. Visual Cue of Courses I'm Auditing

    It would be nice to have the tab of the course(s) I'm auditing a different color or some other representation to know that I'm auditing that course. Can't really tell that I'm auditing a course other than remembering

  7. I'd love to be able to access more semesters than just the last two. To see old assignments, look at submissions you've made, etc.

    I'd love to be able to access more semesters than just the last two. To see old assignments, look at submissions you've made, teacher's powerpoints, resources, etc.

  8. Stop using user's email in FROM field

    I would consider this an urgent LearningSuite request. Please read!

    When LearningSuite sends emails, it extracts the sender's email address from BYU personal information and tacks that address on to the outgoing email in the FROM and REPLY-TO fields.

    A couple of years ago, this wouldn't have been a problem. However, DMARC has become more prevalent; causing LearningSuite emails to be rejected or marked as spam by the recipient's email service.

    (If you don't know what DMARC is, it is essentially a filter that will catch any emails which do not come from servers within the recipient's domain. LearningSuite servers…

  9. Retake Quizzes for Practice

    It would be nice if we could retake quizzes for practice. It won't go towards our grade, but we can take the quiz just like normal as a way to study for tests. It could be an option that the professor can choose to enable.

  10. Selecting a category in mobile should open up the list of subcategories, not load the page for the first subcategory listed

    As it stands, it is rather unintuitive to have to wait for the first subcategory to load when it is rarely the subcategory I actually want. It would make more sense if when I selected the "content" tab in mobile or half window desktop it opened the list of subcategories allowing me to select from there rather than waiting for "syllabus" to load and then having to go back to "content" to select "exam keys".

  11. Include a Personal Notes Feature on Learning Suite Quizzes/Exams

    There should be a notes section added next to questions on quizzes and exams that we can use to leave notes for ourselves that can be used when we study old quizzes and exams later in the semester. It should be invisible to the grader.

  12. A "Turn Off Notifications" Feature

    I get a lot of messages that do not apply to me. I actually need to know if I have relevant messages in my inbox from TA's but close to 75% of the notifications I get are from people who are asking for notes and then all the replies of "I need them too!" or "The syllabus says don't do that" etc. I would like to be able to simply not receive notifications from those messages so I know if my TA's or professors have actually shared relevant information with me.

  13. Make the message notification bubble clickable

    It's a small programming error, but the html element for the message bubble is not clickable. Because of the size of the envelope in comparison to the bubble, I tend to click on the bubble most of the time. This does not send me to the messages page because the message bubble has no javascript click binding attached to it.

  14. Mobile Phone: Grid Schedule

    BYU's learning suite combined calendar is a helpful tool. On mobile devices when the grid - calendar is selected, but when I try to scroll down to see the rest of the grid, it switches back to "list mode". Please fix this!

    A previous request was made for this fix, but it was declined. If you aren't going to fix it, then removed the "grid combined calendar" option for mobile phones. Currently it is unusable.

  15. Don't automatically switch combined schedule to list view

    When I make my window smaller (like if I have two windows each taking up half my screen), the combined schedule is automatically switched to list mode. I hate this. grid mode works just fine in a smaller window.

  16. Automatically create a to-do list based off of assignments

    Have a to do list that the student can edit. They should be able to edit completion time, add assignments/readings, take away assignments.

  17. Show Due Time on Grade Section

    It would be good if it can not only show due date but also the due time. I have been tricked by cases where a particular assignment has the same due date but a earlier due time and not able to submit the assignments on time.

  19. 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.

  20. Add keyboard shortcuts

    The current click-based UI slows down effectiveness. If there were more robust keyboard shortcuts to navigate and interact with Learning Suite my college experience would be entirely revolutionized.
