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".
(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.

  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

    • Office 2013 support for Blackbaud Education Edge Admissions Office, Mail merges, etc.

      Office 2013 has been available for over 2 years. We need compatibility with Admissions Office. Staff can not upgrade their computers because the Admissions Office does not support this version.

        • It would be very helpful to let teachers view the school calendar through FAWeb.

          Teachers need to be able to view the school calendar through FAWeb. Most of our teachers have only that login, and there currently is no way for them to see the school calendar.

          • Prevent the gradebook from logging out when the gradebook is open.

            The screen doesn't cage until you hit the save button, then you find out all of your work was for nothing. Grades take a long time to enter, why would there be such a quick timeout?

              • In education edge, it would be very helpful, when printing labels, if you could add a specific label size other than those already listed.

                When printing labels in education edge, there are several label types already listed from which to select from. however, if you're trying to generate a label for a size not listed, there is no way to add your label size. It would be a huge hep to be able to add your label size.

                • Allow grades to be posted from two different schools at the same time.

                  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.

                  • 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?

                      Shade M's and zeroes in red; all instructor to look only at M's and zero assignment grades by class and to make changes directly onto that screen.

                        • consider be able to organize assignments by what is "M" (missing). We can organize by date, by category, I would find it helpful.

                          Add a organizational feature to order by what assignment(s) is/are missing. These would come up front and be viewed readily.

                          This is in addition to the reports that can be run.

                              If you want to import a Primary Addressee or a Primary Salutation, the search for the field to map to is difficult and doesn't make sense. Field Items should be arranged more logically and easier to find. Check out RE!

                              • Allow for configuration of the search window for different kind of records

                                Currently the search window has 5 set columns that users can not edit. We are able to rearrange them but it would be helpful to have different information pop up so we can differentiate applicants or students versus having to open each record. It would be helpful to be able to select exactly what information you want to appear in the columns that your school would find useful.

                                    • 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…

                                      • Need a log to show more detail when grades are changed

                                        Now that supervisors have the ability to change grades, we need more accessible data to know who changes what grades.

                                        • allow users to manipulate the aging periods within aging reports on the fly within FE Student Billing.

                                          Currently aging periods are setup in Administration and are system wide.
