Build Next

There will always be more improvements than the Schudio team have capacity to work on at any one time. However, we do look at what our clients request when planning development. So please make your suggestions, and cast your votes.

What should we build next?

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.

    • Banner Live From/Until Function

      BANNER Live Date and Time ability?

      Similar to being able to set a date for the "news" events, thus making it possible to schedule certain news items to be released in the future.
      I think this feature would be hugely beneficial to have inputted on the Banners. Then, for example, I can activate many different banners to become live at specific times on specific dates.
      So ideally a function that will read something like this....

      Banner Live From (insert date & time here) Banner live until (insert date & time here)

      • Add a timestamp to news

        It would be great if as well as dates in the future, we could add a time in the future. eg. news embargoed to 0930 today for example.

              Thanks for your feedback.
              This isn’t something we’ve looked at before, if you want to add a link to an event in the calendar you can always use the events module and make sure the tick box for show event in calendar is selected. But we can leave the idea here for additional feedback and comments.

            • Survey Forms

              A useful feature that could be added to the site in the future is an expansion on the contact form. It would be useful to be able to design our own, with our own questions for surveys for example. Another option it could be used for use is generate an email with a request for a school user and email account. These could be an hidden link or require the user to enter a password to access.
              Survey monkey could be used for this but I prefer to keep it internally - data protection - just in case!!

                Thanks for your feedback on this.

                We’ve looked at a form builder in the past but it’s not something we’ve got in active development in the moment – but if it’s a feature that lots of our clients would be interested in then we’d be open to advancing development into form building.

                  Hello,

                  Thanks for the feedback, it would be good to make navigation easier within Pages and Menus especially within those sites that have a lot of content, we’ll investigate this idea and other approaches to see what will be best.

                        We’re looking into this to see what we can do. It would be helpful to know what type of things you’d find useful to use in a poll.
                        Yes/No, Vote options, multiple questions. Obviously the more options, the more complex the development is, but it would be helpful to know what you would find useful.

                            It would be good to update the way galleries are displayed and to provide a native slideshow option without having to embed the gallery onto a page to achieve this.
                            We’ll have a look at this and see what we can do.

                                      Adding additional fields to a quick newsletter sign up box would likely make the page look untidy, perhaps a better method would be to request other information afterwards?

                                      For example after submitting the form to add their email address the user could then be taken to another page to enter additional details?

                                      However this could cause a reduction in the number of people sign up to receive email newsletters on your website.

                                      Let us know what you think.

                                          Allow hyperlinking within local pages from a list/tree rather than having to find & type/paste the address manually.
