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 ...

    • 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.

              • 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.

                            We need the ability to add a watermark to our transcripts so that, when published to NetClassroom, they will be clearly marked as an "Unofficial Transcript".
                            It can be done in Crystal Reports, but that doesn't help when trying to publish Transcripts and Report Cards to the web from Education Edge.

                            • When posting from FAWeb, it would be helpful if we could filter by student.

                              When posting from FAWeb, it would be helpful if we could filter by student, in addition to the other options. There are numerous occasions when a student's grade has to be reposted, and I would prefer reposting for that class and student only, as opposed to the entire class.

                                There should be a way for students to electronically submit the assignments to the teacher privately so other students can't view submitted work.

                                • Allow the faculty access supervisor the ability to advance the academic year setting for all users.

                                  At the start of the new academic year teachers forget they need to advance their academic year setting in faculty access to to see the current academic year's grade book and attendance roster. It would be nice if the supervisor could just press one button and advance to the current academic year in the teacher grade books for them.

                                  Alternatively the process could be automated. Since all academic years are defined by a start date and end date, faculty access could take the current date and automatically select the apropriate academic year.

                                      • STudent Billing - when Posting information over to GL please add more Field choices, particularly the Product and Billing ITEM ID

                                        please add more Field choices, particularly the Product and Billing ITEM ID should be a field choice in Configuration/Posting Information/Charge.
                                        This will make the GL more meaningful without forcing us to look at the subledgers for more detail

                                        • For those of us integrated with RE, please remove the copy phone number feature when an address is copied

                                          Patch3 for 7.87 copies ALL phone types when addresses are shared, even cell, business, and email. This defeats the whole purpose of the RE upgrade (to detach phone/email from addresses). Online re-enrollment and admissions forms are coming in with unwanted phone types in records. When we share an address, we now have to go in and delete all the extraneous phone types. Follow RE's lead...do not attach phone types to addresses in any form (copying, sharing, etc).
