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.16 votes

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.3 votes

I really think that LearningSuite needs it's own app. I know there's a section for it on the BYU app, but it's confusing, and it doesn't work well. I co-own a software development company with my brother that would be happy to build this app for you. I would love to hear your thoughts on this idea, and hopefully we can work together!34 votes

All of the TAs open lab hours are listed beneath their names, but it would be more helpful to see the list in a weekly calendar format. Sometimes a student doesn't care which TA has which hours, they just want to know if there will be a TA in the open lab before they make the trip to campus. If a class has multiple TAs in multiple places, then the system can sort by the room location of the office hours.123 votes

In essays and so forth you sometimes have to put your section number on the assignment. It would be much more convenient if the number was under the name on each tab. Example: "ECON 110" with "sec 002" right underneath it with smaller characters . You could also add it on the "All Courses" tab under "Course List." One or both of these would be more convenient and probably very easy to do.49 votes

There needs to be a way to create a repeating event in the combined calendar for things that teachers haven't put there. I want to, for example, put that I have an online math assignment due every tuesday and thursday rather than have to type it in on each day, each week.6 votes

Just like the combined schedule that is on learning suite, it would be great if there was a list of current grades in each class and a current cumulative GPA. It can be very tedious to do it through the GPA calculator107 votes

I'm a TA grader. Oftentimes, students will get a 100%, or close to that, so having to type in a number for every student takes longer than it could. For example, if the Assignment is out of 50 points, then next to where it says ___ / 50, just add a button that would fill in 50 in the box.

As I get nearer to the end of my BYU experience, I have more and more courses that all come from the same department, which can get confusing. It would be nice if the My Courses ribbon listed the course names (or let me add something), so I can keep things organized in my head!57 votes

I don't understand the need for a comparison button. I have gone my whole schooling career without ever knowing how I compared to everyone else in the class, and you know what? I've been fine! Pride begins with comparisons, and not to mention the low self-esteem one receives when they've done worse than everyone else in the class. I'm disappointed with BYU and the standards it stands for if it has pride-promoting buttons next to every single assignment. Please remove this! It does more damage than it's worth!13 votes

Many of us have seen abuse of the messaging system. This can include everything from people making irrelevant small talk in a chat for the entire class down to students being bullied because of political affiliation. There are cases of students arguing and name calling in a class message thread. These things are certainly and abuse of the system and can be an abuse of individuals. Online abuse is serious and abuse of the system is annoying. It should be reported properly. Reporting would include a notification to the professor and possibly to LS admin.267 votes

The new statistics section looks good! Thank you for adding that. In addition to the statistics currently given, I recommend adding a few more.
Specifically, the standard deviation and the median score would be extremely useful.
Additionally, the first and third quartile would be good to know.31 votes
