Buzz: Product Feedback

Buzz navigation requests (from Sara Wietbrock)

Implemented feature idea or fixed bug

Buzz still seems to be really difficult for the students to navigate.  I think it has to do with everything appearing together in that left hand pane, the To Do list above the Assignments,   It is easy for them to find what is on their To Do list, but it is difficult to navigate back to a completed assignment (such as for a retry attempt).

[jmw: Request #1--make the items in the to do list clickable so that they can take the student straight to that activity when clicked.  BH had this feature for the Due Soon options.]

Sara continues:

If possible, from the student’s performance>grades tab, can it be made so that they can click on an assignment in that view and have Buzz give them the option to complete/retry the assignment from there?  Currently I am having them go to the grades view to see what they are missing or have a low grade on (this seems easiest), but then they have to go back to the Activities view and scroll down (in my class sometimes through about 20-30 items plus whatever is duplicated on their To Do list) until they find the assignment they need to retry.

[jmw: Feature Request #2--make the items on the Grades display clickable so that when they click on them (or a particular button as Sara described), they will be taken straight to that item in the Activities view.

Thanks for considering this request,

Sara and Jeremy

Hey Jeremy and Sara:

The first request already exists in the app. However, it appears that some usability enhancement could occur to improve the user's experience.

If you have any specific feedback, please let me know so I can document it.

Thank you.

Hey Jeremy, I just came across this ticket again and it appears that request #2 was applied in Buzz a couple of months ago.

Hi Brad, I think #1 was applied and I can replicate that (and we're super appreciative of that enhancement).

I can't get #2 to work.  When I click on an item in the Grades screen of the Performance section all I get is the details summary, which is nice, but we would also like a way to get straight from that grades screen back into that particular item.  That would be a huge help to us when a student needs to go back and retake something or submit something missing from some time ago. Struggling students are much more likely to do these things for us if they can click there and instantly be on that assignment rather than trying to navigate through the course outline to try to find that one assignment.

I hope that helps clarify what we're looking for and why.

Thanks!

Thanks for clarifying. As a teacher, they can view the grade details and navigate directly to that item, students cannot. I will make a note for this.

I don't know exactly when this occurred, but a while ago we enhanced the Grade Details screen so that students could click on the activity title to navigate to it.
