  1. Eliminate whitespace at the top of the browser

    I have noticed across multiple devices that there is a line of whitespace at the top of the page. I attached an image of this occurring in Safari. I think Learning Suite would look better without the whitespace.

  2. 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.

  3. Visual Cue of Courses I'm Auditing

    It would be nice to have the tab of the course(s) I'm auditing a different color or some other representation to know that I'm auditing that course. Can't really tell that I'm auditing a course other than remembering

  4. Better Formatting for Written Answers in Exams

    When you enter in a written answer for an exam on learning suite, all formatting is lost when you save. If you added paragraphs or indents, they are eliminated. Instead of an easy to read list of bullet points, the answer is just line after line. Italics and bolding is also eliminated.

    Example of what it looks like after submission: Bullet section: (that was me trying to bold my section of bullet points with a subtitle) •This is my example of how the bullet points just keep going and they are not organized. •Here is my new bullet on the…

  5. Ban MAX LMS and all LMS's besides LS(BYU) and Canvas(CES schools)

    The Less number of LMS's BYU allows, the better and more organized the student experience will be. We understand that LS will likely not switch to Canvas soon, but the use of other LMS's besides LS (official for BYU) and Canvas (official for all CES schools) shouldn't be permitted.

    I know you guys likely arent responsible for this, but I'd like to voice my oppinon none the less. Thank you! :)

  6. Combined Schedule AM/PM

    Every time I try to add an assignment due date to the Combined Schedule, it allows me to change the date and time, however the AM/PM is always seems to be set to AM, even after attempting to change it. It would also be nice if we could edit the time and description when adding the item (perhaps "Add Text" isn't the best wording, either?), rather than typing the title and needing to click on the item again to pull up the edit dialog box.

  7. 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

  8. A thought to make the Course List / Schedule / Announcements Flow a tiny bit less confusing...


    • The Course List has data for Past / Current / Future courses while

    • (as far as I can tell), Schedule and Announcements both only contain information for Current courses. That gets confusing when you click on "future" to get information about upcoming courses for the new semester (as it's not the current semester) and then when you hit Schedule or Announcements you get blanks (as I believe they only show info for Current courses--but that's not clear).

    On the Announcements / Schedule, explicity state in the center of the blank screen, "You have no current courses." If you want to…

  10. Use mainstream LMS API's to Display Canvas events in the Combined Schedule Tab

    Use the Canvas, Max, Blackboard, and LS API's to connect with the Combined Schedule Tab so we can see all classes at once.

  11. Hide graded assignments

    On the grades page have a toggle that hides completed/past-due assignments. That way you can see only the things you have remaining.

  12. Improved Email Message Functionality

    When sending a "New Email Message" is it possible for "Course Recipients" to be listed in alphabetical order. Also can the "search" feature be updated to return all results. I have had to manually scroll to find individuals. After finding their name, I have tested the search and noticed that their listing does not appear.

  14. make combined schedule the default

    i personally think the combined schedule grid layout tab is by far the most useful feature for all of learningsuite, and should be the default home page for every student (people who don't want this as their default home page could change this back to course list). I personally have met dozens of my peers who don't even know this feature exists, or how to use it (especially the checkbox capability). - even though it is a huge productivity booster and helps me make sure I never miss any assignments. My suggestion is to make it the automatic default home…

  15. LS Session Time limit

    Having a 2 hour time limit for a Learning Stuite Session is completely unnecessary and very frustrating. I'm constantly having to sign in again after the time limit expires.

  16. Automatically save messages as a draft

    It has happened to me on multiple occasions where I write a message, and then when I hit "Send," it says that there was an error, or to refresh my browser, and the message is lost, so I have to retype it. It would be nice if the system automatically saved it as a draft, or at least stayed on the page where I could copy the text of my message to my clipboard before refreshing my browser so I didn't have to retype it.

  17. The Duo security login only works when you're looking at it

    If I'm on another tab Duo security doesn't load at all. I have to be looking at the tab for it to process.

  18. Unify view of assignment statistics between student and instructor view

    When looking at statistics for a graded item the views differ between the student and instructor view. The student view is much better and I believe when statistics are viewed the student view should appear.

  19. Incorporate Microsoft Teams

    It would be awesome if Microsoft Teams were integrated into Learning Suite. It would make group work so much easier.

  20. Stay signed in between mobile sessions

    Every time I close and reopen my mobile browser, the cookies from my previous session have been cleared and I have to sign into Learning Suite all over again. The "stay signed in" checkbox is not displaying for me, and the CAS login screen redirects to Learning Suite home after a successful login before my browser's "save password?" dialog can run, so there is no way to even save my password, let alone stay signed in. I'm using the current version of the Chrome mobile browser for Samsung phones, if you want to recreate the problem.
