Buzz: Product Feedback
We'd like to see some improvements to the Communicate feature.
Have email be completely internal – no need to use an outside system, but can get notifications in outside email if you want.col
Alphabetize list of people in class by last name not first name (you can choose/sort in gradebook, but not in communicate)
Allow teachers to still email students who are no longer active in the course – completed, etc. If set to automatically complete, teacher might still want to email them with follow up information, a congratulations/completion certificate, etc.
Have a record of these emails within the system. If a teacher forgets to click box to send copy to self they have no record of email sent. Have the text added to the bottom of emails sent be searchable. The text your system adds at the bottom of the email ("sent on behalf of teacher name to students names”) is grayed out and therefore un-searchable, so if a student says they did not get an email, it is hard for the teacher to find it!
If email does not become internal to the system, then we’d like to see it allow system administrators to lock down emails – make it so students cannot change them. We load students with their district given email, but many change it to their personal emails, then if there are issues, we cannot trouble shoot that for them. Maybe allow for secondary emails – if users want, they can add a personal email in addition to one we load.
