TOPIC: Suggestions: double periods, homework and others

Suggestions: double periods, homework and others 4 years 11 months ago #5177

I've recently started using iDoceo and am finding it really useful.

I have a few things I'd like to see (apologies if these are already listed here).

1. Double periods. At the moment, it looks as though I have two ways to do double periods: either as a single period and leave a blank for the second, or as two single periods. I'm using the former as that works better with planning, but it does mean that the timings look odd.

2. Homework. It would be great to be able to assign homework and have the app remind me when it is due in.

3. Resources. I create PDF slides in another app and then use the "Open In" feature to put them in to iDoceo. I save them in the Diary and that attaches them to the lesson for that day, which is great. However, sometimes I want to assign the same resource to two lessons but when I click on the "Attach" icon there doesn't seem to be a way to attach an already imported resource.

4. Holidays. It would be good to be able to designate days/weeks as holidays (I'm thinking of half terms) so that they were removed from the planner and didn't count for finding previous and next lessons.

5. Integer grades with grade selector. I like using the grade selector to enter grades, but when they are numeric then it allows decimals which doesn't always fit with the grade. It's very minor, I know, but sometimes seeing '7.00' looks a bit odd.

Thanks for a great app!

... and I just found the holiday bit in the calendar! So scratch that one off my list.

Hello loopspace,
Regarding your #5 (numeric grades) :
From the Grade Types option (on the main screen's ruler) > Tap on the numeric grade type you are working with > Rounding > Truncate to 1
The grade editor will now omit those decimal numbers.
If you are entering lots of numeric grades, you may find this useful as well



#3 (resources) From the gradebook view, tap on Tools (top bar) > Resources . Here you will be able to select and copy resources to other periods. We will try make this option directly available from the planner.
#2 (homework) yes, we have this in our to-dos
#1 (double periods) this one will take more time!

Regards
Please take a moment to add or update your rating for iDoceo 5 teacher gradebook so that we can continue working on it. Thanks!

Hi,

Thanks for those! I clearly should have posted in a "how do I?" category instead of the "Suggestions".
