  1. 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.

  2. Individual customization of navigation bar

    I wish there was more freedom to customize the navigation bar at the top of the LearningSuite home page. Some ideas include:

    - Allowing individuals to rename courses. When you take a lot of courses in the same department, you constantly have to sort through a list of nearly identical course names (such as HIST 200, HIST 201, HIST 220, etc.) to get to the page for the correct course. Allowing students to rename these pages more intuitively (such as "World Civ", "Hist Craft", etc.) would reduce confusion and promote efficiency among students.

    - Allowing students to color-code the tabs…

  3. Fix the Messages "Help" link

    The "Help" button on LearningSuite messages has been a broken link for my entire time at BYU. It directs to the page 'https://lsinfo.byu.edu/messages-2'; which simply says "Page not found."

  4. Quick View of Class Grades

    On the main page where you see all of the your classes, it would be nice to see your grade in that class next to the class name. For example:

    A HTG 100 85%
    COMMS 101 96.8%
    DNCE 181 94%

    Something like that.

  6. 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.

  7. PLEASE LET US OPT OUT OF MESSAGING

    I don't even care about reporting people, just let us leave chats and stop getting notifications. I don't want to filter out all new students, I just want to be able to leave groups of students babbling in their mission languages and insulting each other. PLEASE. It would take like a days worth of coding.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Extremely clear warning that the exam is about to end.

    A clear statement such as "This is the end of the exam. Are you sure you want to submit," would be useful to avoid submitting exams prematurely by mistake.

  11. Exceptions for certain students in Assignments.

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

  12. LearningSuite app

    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!

  13. 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.

  14. Add the section number of the class onto LS.

    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.

  15. 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.

  16. For Grading: Add a button next to "Score" that fills in a 100%

    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.

    I've attached an image of a rough mockup

  17. Show all TA open lab hours in a weekly schedule format.

    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.

  18. Pdfs open in browser instead of downloading.

    The way the pdf attachments are designed in learning suite, they default to downloading instead of opening within browser pdf viewers. This happens independent of browser, browser settings, and OS.

  19. Personal background

    I rather like the idea of having a personal background on learning suite that appears on the homepage. My wife uses BYU Idaho's brain honey and that is one of the options. It looks awesome and would add a nice homey touch to an otherwise sterile page.

  20. Stick With Non-Italicized Text

    The new italicized text in Learning Suite looks terrible. Let's go back to the standard.
