Education Solutions Discovery

What’s happening with my Education Edge product enhancement requests?

With the launch of the new K-12 Community ( https://community.blackbaud.com/products/k12 ) we now have a better way to manage, respond to and crowdsource your product enhancement requests. This means User Voice has been discontinued and you should now start using the Ideas portal (http://community.blackbaud.com/products/k12/ideas) as your main tool to communicate enhancement requests.

The Ideas portal allows us to directly tie your ideas to our product roadmaps. Product Managers can quickly respond to your ideas online with a status update so you know what product enhancements are coming. The tool also allows your ideas to be crowdsourced so that popular requests gain more visibility and we can see what ideas matter most to our customers.

Please note, you will not have the ability to submit new enhancement requests for Education Edge, FAWeb or Student Billing as we are no longer making improvements to those products.

You don’t need a login to get started and view existing ideas, but if you would like to add new ideas, vote, or comment on existing ones, you’ll be asked to sign-up. Additionally, we’re working on single sign-on (SSO) capabilities for the future and will let you know when it’s available.

Thank you for sharing your product ideas with us as your suggestions make our products better!

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".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

          • Show number currently enrolled

            As I edit student schedules I would like to see the number currently enrolled in a class to help determine into what section I place the student. It could be part of the drop down menu for each section.

            • on medical tab- visits/medications- add academic year filter and total visits to reflect the filter you choose

              we would like the ability to filter nurse visits by academic year. Some students come to the nurse daily for meds and the list gets huge.

                      • Payment Methods

                        It would be nice if admin/users had the ability to add NEW payment methods rather than being forced to select "other" and then add a sub category.

                        Using the current method, the statements have a line devoted just for the word "other" and then inserts a line underneath listing the new subcategory. This sucks up space on statements and makes statements multiple pages.

                        We'd like to be able to add items like "wire transfer" or the name of a collection agency as alternate payment options.

                          • I suggest on the enter course request page, both the course ID and name be displayed together.

                            When entering course request, I use the course ID, but for verification that student gave me the correct ID and course name it would be very helpful for both to be displayed on the right side window.

                              • 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

                                    When configuring a calculation based on grades in other marking columns in Faculty Access for the Web, we are unable to designate to terminate the calculate if a certain value, such as NG, is found in any marking column. The calculation will skip over those grades and calculate based on what grading information does exist in marking columns. Using Faculty Access for the Web to calculate the Final marking column, we will continue to see those final grades based on partial information.

                                    However, in Registrar's Office we are able to create a course average calculation, which does have the functionality…

                                    • This is in regards to integration with EE and RE, and modifying the existing printing options

                                      I would LOVE to be able to filter down more in the printing of reports from the linking screen.

                                      Currently, from the integration linking screen you can choose to print all students or selected students, nothing in between. We have a significant number of records that are not linked because they are alumni. When my only options to print are all or one, it makes it difficult to see the results that I have on my current integration linking screen.

                                      I would like the ability to print based off of my current filters in the integration linking screen, OR put…

                                      • FIX the email settings to include ALL students when selecting All

                                        When choosing the students who will receive the email, there is an option for "All" but it does not actually select any students. It would be great if all students listed would then be selected rather than having to select each student individually.

                                        • Entering comments in FAWeb seems to have bug despite having set the default font.

                                          Even though I have set a default font for comments in Registrar's Office and instructed teachers to enter comments directly without cutting and pasting (hidden Rich Text formatting), we still end up with a variety of formatted comments with different fonts. Do you think my teachers are sneaking and pasting from Word?
