  1. Maintain line breaks in comments

    When adding notes to an assignment, newlines are not transformed into <br> tags.

    Example

    "1. a
    2. b
    3. c"

    comes back as "1.a 2.b 3.c" when I view/submit

  2. Link or view of Professor's personal class websites

    I really hate it when Professor's choose to have their own website for their classes. The ideal solution would be to require all Professor's to use learning suite (It get's messy when three classes are on Learning Suite and the other two are on their own websites).

    Since it is likely not possible to require this, it would be really nice to have Learning Suite accommodations.

    Option #1 (Easier)

        Since the Learning Suite is often not published when a Professor has an external website, it would be very helpful to at least link to the external website when you click

  3. sort grades by date

    it would be great to be able to sort assignment by date, regardless of category. the categories are nice for grading, but its really easy to miss an upcoming assignment because its hidden in a category at the bottom that is rarely used

  4. Take away the Presidential Message on the LS landing page

    As a web developer myself, I'm appreciative of the functionality LS provides--especially the combined calendar. However, the new "Presidential Message" that appears on LS home page takes away from the stark functionality of Learning Suite. Upon loading, it often grabs my attention as it's the only graphic on the page. However, I've noticed that the image and quote often get distracts and derails me from my focus on my assignments. I log into LS with the goal of looking up an assignment. But when the graphic/quote appears, my thoughts are drawn away from navigating to the specific class and I…

  5. Copy and paste iCalendar feed on mobile devices (Android specifically)

    I cannot copy the iCalendar link when viewing Learning Suite on a mobile browser. This seems like a simple fix, but it's very irritating.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Dashboard

    I don't know if this is already possible, but there should be a way to view past posts on dashboard. Sometimes my professors post review material for tests on the dashboard, but as soon as the date passes I can't view it anymore.

  9. 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…

  10. Improve editing of self-added notes/items

    1) Right now if you want to delete a note, you click on it and select "Edit" and then "Delete". This can be a time-consuming process. "Delete" should be moved to the flyout itself, perhaps with a confirmation window if that is a concern (though I think it may not be)

    2) When saving an edit to a previously created note, the button for saving reads "update" (as in C.R.U.D.). It should read "save" for non-technical users.

    3) The ability to change a note's date would be helpful. Right now users are forced to delete each note and then recreate…

  11. 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.

  12. Simple quality-of-life navigation improvement: show nav bar.

    After logging on using either the mobile site or the split-screen version of the desktop site, I have to click (or tap) "all courses" then the class, then that same tab up top (that now has the name of the class) then the tab I want, then that same tab up top to finally scroll down and click or tap on a tab, and if i accidentally click the wrong one then I have to do it one more time. It's not a huge deal, but with my understanding of programming it's probably an easy fix that would save maybe…

  13. 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

  14. Add drag and drop support to file submission

    When submitting a file, we currently have to click submit, choose file, and go find the folder where the file is located. It would be awesome to be able to drag and drop a file into the submission box instead, like google drive does for uploads.

  15. Be able to submit assignments in Learning Suite through the BYU app

    Just a quick little fix. If you could submit assignments through to Learning Suite the BYU mobile app that would be awesome!

    Sometimes for my classes I need to submit a picture of something and it would be so nice to be able to upload straight from my phone instead of having to email it to myself and then submitting it from my computer

  16. 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.

  17. Put word count on digital dialogue

    In the comment text box on the digital dialogue page, it should have an option to see your current word count. That should also update as you type.

  18. 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.

  20. The bottom bar, on firefox, is stuck in the middle of the page.

    It's smack dab in the middle of the page, every time. On the assignments tab, on the schedule tab. Everywhere. It covers up important info that I can't get to until I switch to chrome
