Buzz: Product Feedback

Requested changes in Buzz

Hi! 

I really love our new BUZZ LMS! You guys rock! There are two changes my colleagues and I are really really really hoping will be do-able, and am wondering if anyone can help:

1. Having student phone numbers listed in their profile in addition to their email. As an online teacher, about 60% of my time is spent calling students for numerous reasons. Having their phone numbers readily available and easily group-able (ex: showing all students who scored below a 60% and their respective phone numbers, or students who have forgotten to turn in a particular assignment) would be absolutely amazing!

2. Another important change my colleagues and I would love to see is to be able to edit the html of the numerous pages. Right now we can only embed html, but in order to make the page really nice... many of us would really love to have the creative rights to changing the entire page. This was a feature that our old LMS, Blackboard, had and that many of us used.

Thanks for listening to these requests. Would you please forward it to anyone in your company who might be able to help implement these changes?

Thanks! 
Priscilla

 I'd love to see the HTML editor come back as it was in Brainhoney, or at least an option to edit the paged css to allow background images.

We would love to be able to edit the html in the editor. The Embed option is great, especially for those that are not tech-savvy. Not being able to edit the HTML for the whole editor takes away too many options.

Is adding the student phone number as suggested on the development road map?

Hello everyone, hope your week is going great!

Regarding phone numbers: We currently do not have plans to expose the student phone numbers in the UI. However, an admin could create a phone number field in the User Metadata. This would (not) appear to teachers, but would appear to admin when looking at the user screen under User Data.

We also are working on improving our rich text editor. We don't have anything to announce yet, but should in the next couple of months.

Hi Brad,

Did you mean to say that User Metadata will not appear to teachers?

Thank you for your response and clarification,

Dennis
