Education Solutions Discovery

Hello and Welcome!

“Product Discovery” is the method we use to take our client’s ideas and turn them into software changes or new features. We have the opportunity to learn about opporunities using surveys, support case trends, user groups, one-on-one conversations, and account managers – as well as here!

Discovery can include conversations, observation, drawing, sketching, and prototyping with you. We hope this forum will allow us to be more transparent as to what discovery topics are currently ongoing, and which go through to a release.

Help make our Education Solutions even better and vote and share your ideas today!

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. add a column on the Activity Screen for hiding transactions from printing

    Right now I have to open the charges separately and check each one manually. If it was on the Activity Screen it could be done easily at a glance instead of opening each one.

    Thank you,
    Pam Srna

          Allow two separate users to be logged into The Education Edge and post grades for different schools at the same time. Currently, only one user can post grades at a time.

          • prevent the popup message when a duplicate exists in the search for a course

            If a student enters a course ID to register and there are two options offered with that ID, a pop-up message occurs saying “Course could not be found, or duplicates exist.” Is there any way to change the behavior so that if a duplicate is the issue, it instead automatically opens the “Course Search” dialog box (which is what opens if one clicks the binoculars while the course area is left blank), and populates the Course ID with the ID that was typed (and perhaps even automatically starts the search, so that it then displays the two options; though if…

            • Show current academic year classes in FAWeb before the term starts

              Even though the "current Academic Year" has started already the Faculty cannot view their classes because the "term" hasn't started yet. Why can't they view courses for the upcoming term if they fall within the current year? Teachers need to prepare for their classes before they actually start. I know they can access them through the Gradebook, but they set these up so rarely they can't remember to look there for them. They need them right there on their home page or they panic!

                  • add a sound to tell us our session is timing out.

                    ADD a sound notification when a session times out. The pop up notice sometimes appears in the background and is missed. I am tired of losing time when I enter data only to see my session has timed out.

                    • Have a tool/wizard that can be used that looks for any unused queries that falls within a specified date range so they may be deleted

                      Have a way to find all unused queries that fall within a date range that is defined, then be able to delete these queries that meet the criteria without having to go through each query to determine if it should be deleted.

                      • Posting Student Photos for Attendance Look-Up

                        When opening up my attendance records, I at times have no idea what the student looks like, and with some sensitive information from families, it would be nice to match the information, along with the picture of the student whom it affects for safety purposes.
                        This feature would be good in their records as well.

                              • Add a feature to allow teachers to email progress reports and missing assignments reports to students and parents andor post to NetClassroom

                                You should be able to email the progress reports and missing assignments reports generated to students and parents directly through Reports. They can use that information more than I need it - I have my gradebook. Additionally, you should be able to post the reports to NetClassroom so that students can get their overall performance from their teacher, rather than just individual assignment scores.

                                      • allow the option to appear on report card at the class level instead of the course level

                                        The current record for courses contains the report card option at the course level. Our school has courses that have multiple classes; some of which may not appear on our report card. We would like the option of for report cards to be placed at the class level. At this time, we have to drop people from classes to make our report cards appear correctly. For more information, please see case # 12333371.

                                        • Reporting student and teacher login times and duration

                                          Create a report of student and teacher login times and duration on the FAWeb and Netclassroom sites. This helps verify whether students or parents actually logged in to submit assignments or review grades. For administrators, it gives an idea of how often teachers are using and updating their classes.
