  1. Starting consolidated schedule on Monday instead of Sunday!

    Creating an option to start consolidated schedule on Monday instead of Sunday! All my Sunday assignments are due for the week before it, not after, and it would be nice to be able to see what is due all in the same week all on the same page.

      • Headers in Chronological Order

        It would be great to be able to reorder the headers into chronological order instead of alphabetical order. This would also be a fantastic feature in the grid view of the combined schedule, so it was like an actual calendar of my schedule.

        • Print Combined Schedule

          It would be fantastic to be able to print out my weekly combined schedule (in either the 5 day or the 7 day format)!

          • BRING BACK FULL MONTH VIEW OF COMBINED SCHEDULE ASAP PLEASE

            I turned on Learning Suite today to look at my Combined Schedule, and noticed it had changed, and no longer supported a full month view of the schedule, it only allowed for a 5-day view or 7-day view. I always use the Combined Schedule to plan out my future weeks, and I hate having to click through weeks to figure out what's going on, I just want a monthly overview. Please change this back ASAP.

            • Is there a way to have a TO DO page, like on Canvas? BYU Provo is 10x harder because its hard to find assignments and easy to miss deadlines

              Adding a TO DO page like on Canvas. This would allow students to see the top 5 deadlines they have due. Students have to spend too much time searching through the different formats teachers use to post their assignments. BYU-Hawaii uses Canvas, and it makes knowing what you need to get done 10x easier. If we had a TO DO page like on canvas, students wouldn't miss assignments that are due and discover "hidden" assignments too late.

              • Improve discoverability of assignments

                I've found it to be a nightmare to figure out what my assignments are for some classes and when they are due. I'm suggesting a more obvious format for assignments.

                First, assignments should appear more obvious. Quizzes, Learning Suite submission assignments, in-class submission assignments, and other submission methods should appear differently than other posts that teachers make that aren't assignments at all but still show up on the calendar. Currently they all blend together and it's easy to mistake an assignment for a post that just states what the day's lecture covers.

                Second, a real to-do list. I've seen the…

                • Make the Message System pop up without taking up the whole window.

                  When I click the message icon from the home screen of Learning Suite, the message window takes up the whole screen. I would prefer the message window to pop up in a modal format, or some other way that doesn't take up the whole screen and that loads more quickly.

                  Reason: Often, the messages aren't critical, and it feels like more of a distraction if I "navigate to another window" (which is what the experience feels like) and then realize the message wasn't important and I have to "navigate back". Perhaps the message could open up in a "chat" format…

                    • Reminder system

                      Assignments or schedule category -- the ability to set reminders on assignments via email. For example, I have a paper due next week, but I would like to be reminded this Friday to start working on it. So a button that allows me to pick a date (and optionally a time) to be reminded/receive an email about the assignment. That way I don't see just when it's due, but I can plan ahead on when to start.

                      • Opening an online (BYU instructure) class in a new tab from learning suite. Rather than the same window.

                        As a student with an online class, I want to be able to access the class in Instructure via LS within a new tab, rather than opening in the same window causing me to have to open a new window and log back into LS.

                        Just change the button link from

                        <a href="https://www.byu.instructure.com/">*class name*</a>

                        to

                        <a href="https://byu.instructure.com/&quot; target="_blank">*class name*</a>

                        and you will have changed my life forever.

                        Thx

                        • Put the class name rather than number on the tabs

                          It is extremely confusing when the tabs only show the class number (e.g., 100 rather than BIO 100), especially when you are taking two classes with the same number, like COMD 351 and REL 351, because the tab shows them both as 351.

                              • No duo sign in requirement

                                The Duo sign in requirement is fine for those who are really worried about others gaining access to their information, but I would like an option that allowed me to waive the duo sign in so that I don't always have to have two devices active if I'm checking learning suite anywhere other than on my phone.

                                    Currently, there is a way to view stats for individual assignments, quizzes, exams, etc. There should be a way to view stats for all sections of the class. For instance, how am I doing on the in-class quizzes compared to the class? What about for the written homework? Right now I can only find stats for individual assignments or my overall grade in the class.

                                      • Exceptions for certain students in Assignments.

                                        Add "exceptions" for assignments (just as there are in the settings for exams)

                                        • Ability to leave messages (group)

                                          Learning Suite messages often start to discuss one thing and end up talking about the most random things. Most often, messages are irrelevant for the majority of the class.
                                          It would be nice to have a way for a user to leave these group messages so that they don't have to deal with constant annoyance once a group message has been created.

                                          PS: Not sure if deleting/archiving the message does something like that. If it does, how about changing the 'Delete' button to something like 'Delete and Leave message' or something more informative?
