  1. 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.

  2. No more comparisons!

    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!

  4. Wrap text in Schedule List

    When you look at the schedule for all of the classes, it is inconvenient to have to scroll right and left to see the longer assignment listings. It would be much nicer for the text to wrap, so to speak, so that there would be no need to scroll right to see the text.

  5. Add a system clock at the top

    There's a deadline paired with assignments that is set to a specific time of day (e.g. 11:59 pm). However, there is no indicator anywhere that shows what time it currently is in the LearningSuite server system. For all I know it could be two minutes faster or slower than what I have on my watch/phone/laptop. Having a clock displayed relative to the system would help prevent last-minute issues

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Message Confirmation

    Create a "Seen By: " box so the message sender knows if the message has been read. This would be similar to the feature in Facebook when someone posts to a group page. And help professors/students know if they need to verbally follow up on messages that may or may not have been checked.

  10. 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.

  11. Have a "sent history" on the email tab so that I can look back at past messages I have sent.

    I'd like to be able to look back on the emails I've sent through Learning Suite for things like drafted emails that were never sent, emails I have sent, and emails that might not have gone through.

  12. 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."

  13. 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. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  20. Exceptions for certain students in Assignments.

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