I think 3.0 is excellent- most of the teaching staff in my school is using it.

However, since you asked, the one thing for next update I'd love is the ability to import more file types. Our school uses 3sys to register and view classes-from the iPad it exports into a .xls file type which is not compatible with iDoceo. If we were able to export classes straight from 3sys to iDoceo next academic year without having to convert it in Excel on PC into a .csv file type first, it would eradicate one of the few remaining hurdles to perfection!

@Mike our next major update will improve our current XLS support, and will add XLSX. If you have a chance to send us some fake XLS generated by your software we'll make sure it works next time.
We'll keep 3sys in mind but improving XLS/XLSX is our top priority

@Beth Hi there... still too soon for a deadline, we're still working on the specs. I know your colleague needs that Beta badly!

I've had the same thing mentioned to me by two members of staff at work today.

1) A music teacher who has been recording clips of students performances using idoceo

2) a science teacher who wants to photo students work and save it in the mark book.


They both essentially want better file management, and after getting an Ipad air to replace my Ipad 2 and seeing the increase in file size for a photo (!) I'd also find it helpful.

Improvement one: When you save a photo to a student (cell in markbook or student themselves) superimpose the name of the student over the photo.

Improvement two: Save photos to an album called 'Idoceo <classname>' to help keep photos organised.

Improvement three: Add the option to save media to the cloud, then access it through idoceo as and when it was needed. This would be extremely useful as it would allow me to photograph much more student work and then when I do reports or something similar, access it through Idoceo without it eating a big chunk of device memory.

bonjour à vous et, à mon tour, sans originalité, je tiens à vous féliciter pour cette appli qui me simplifie enormement la vie.

restent quelques points qui empêchent de la voir comme l'appli ultime du prof. Pour moi, la plus frustrante, c'est l'agenda, encore imparfait. J'apprécie istudiez pro et week cal HD et dans l'absolu un agenda reprenant le meilleur de ces applis serait un vrai plus : la possibilité de pouvoir regarder les notes prises pour chaque evenement directement dans l'emploi du temps semaine est tres plaisante . pas de manipulation fastidieuse, elles sont là, dans les encarts de temps, visibles, c'est tout.

est ce envisageable ?

merci a vous et, par pitié, ne fondez pas votre appli à la sauce ios 7, d'un fade désespérant.

petit rajout : je sais que le journal d'idoceo permet de voir le contenu des informations laissées pour chaque cours mais ce qui manque c'est la possibilité de pouvoir visualiser sur la meme page les evenements du calendrier.

@riverer you'll find the option to store in an album per class here.

In this very same screen, you'll see the option 'store images locally' which lets you choose a quality factor. Even keeping a high quality factor of 70% will represent about 60%-70% reduction in the image size.

Hello!

I am loving everything in your program so far!

My dream team for the next release would be:

Any way to make charts and graphs for columns and such? It would be great for generating reports to give to administration and such without just having lists of numbers.

In conjunction with that if it can be done, have a main dashboard after tapping into a class from the main screen that can graphically display things like attendance and such. Sort of like what Teacherkit does (which I do not use anymore thanks to your wonderful program!).

I will second or third the idea for a categories list to be able to group weighted scores together rather than create separate tabs/columns to get the desired data.

Lastly, and this is stretching it a little far haha, but maybe a section where I can enter data for item analysis for tests and quizzes? :) I did say it was my dream team lineup! I have yet to find a decent item analysis spreadsheet app for quantifying data from questions on tests / test questions.

Thanks!

Hello SD1138,

Count on those charts and graphs for our next major update along that dashboard. It is something we've been working on for some time, and it will finally see the light on this 3.5.
Those categories will take a bit longer, but we're considering it as well.
Noted your request on item analysis ... can't say we'll do it any time soon, but if you'd like to share with us what you have in mind, do not hesitate to send an e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and I'll see what we can do about it.

Firstly, I cannot sing iDoceo's praises enough. I started using the app at the start of this academic year, and it's no understatement to say that it's revolutionised the way I organise my classes.

Three suggestions for future versions:

1) (seconding something a member commented on earlier), it would be very useful to have a downloadable version of the manual. The internet is never there when you really need it, and having access to this offline would be a great help.

2) a calculator built in to the app. I currently find myself exiting iDoceo to work out calculations, and either have to laboriously switch from calculator to iDoceo for every grade, or find that I've been away from iDoceo for long enough that I need to restart.

3). A way to separate class grade books and attendance records, etc., into terms or trimesters.


I also hope you're not going crazy over there changing the design to match the new ios. It's lovely and pretty the way it is :p

Thanks for all your hard work! Best 6€ I've spent all year!

Welcome Benela,

1) I'll see what we can do about this. We keep updating the web almost on a daily basis and from our experience, PDFs tend get outdated pretty easily. We're adding videos and tutorials on many pages and a PDF file with all that info would be huge. Maybe some iBook would be a better solution.

2) Yes, this will be a nice addition, noted.

3)We try to be as flexible as possible in this matter. Creating and hiding tabs should do! Let me know if I'm missing something

PS: We'll keep working on iDoceo's looks, but not in this new (and rather dull) iOS7 direction, don't worry about it.

Hi and happy new year!
I'm an iDoceo newbie and start figuring out how using it. It seems a lot of function are useful for me but not the more important: charts and diagrams to analyse the whole class progress AND the single student profit. As I'm a supervisor for a course I have to follow 6/7 instructor on the way, and so is difficult to monitor how the students are going just having a sequel of numbers... (Improving, going down, being stationary). In addition, a specific diagram is helpful for me: the Kiviat diagram, as I can easily identify (and show to students) weaknesses and strongness. At present I was able to find only 1 (!) app to do this, called spiderchart, is quite good in the result but hard to settle down and no data exchange with others app (no import...). I'm working around in order to have diagrams (but no Kiviat...) filtering student by student, exporting to numbers, creating the chart, then send back to iDoceo but is really time consuming! If I could create all my charts/diagrams directly inside iDoceo will be perfect!
Hope in 3.5 you put something to help me!
Best regards
Gigi

Hi Bert,
I recently joined a website that offers lesson planning called www.commoncurriculum.com
I found the general structure of the "Long Range Planner" quite useful to have a good overview and I find it really helps to plan ahead. Maybe you are already working on something in this direction but I thought I'd share this anyway.
I would find it really great if we could have some planner function that would allow for something like this "overview" panel.

Again, thanks for the amazing work you are doing. Your app is the best!

One thing I would like to see is full Bluetooth keyboard support; for the moment it only works with text fields

Je souhaiterais voir une amélioration sur les plans de classe.

Idocéo permet de faire des groupes de 2 ou 3 aléatoirement mais j'aimerais qu'il puisse faire aussi des groupes de 4 ou plus.
J'aimerai aussi qu'Idocéo puisse faire des groupes en tenant compte des absences ou élèves dispensés du jour par exemple. Il suffirai de choisir les critères que l'on veut (par exemple,les présents....), puis le nombre de personnes par groupe souhaité (2,3,4 ou 5) puis de laisser faire Idocéo pour faire des groupes.

Cette fonction serait très utile pour des disciplines où les élèves ne sont pas dans une classe mais sur un terrain de sport par exemple comme en Education Physique et sportive.

merci

Hi

I am loving iDoceo 3. Biggest new thing for me was the bulk import of photos, saves a lot of time.

Features I would like to see in 3.5

- If i have the same class on the same day, I cannot add different notes to each lesson in the planner

- It would be great if I could edit the contents of the ruler so I had my favorite shortcuts there.

- Would be nice to be able to default to my planner instead of my classes when I load idoceo

- Would be nice to add free's, lunch, breaks, after and before school to my planner without having to create a class for them

- I have a column which should minus the contents of one column from another, but every time I reload the app, the minus symbol defaults back to the plus.

- In the reports, I have added annotations to the column headers. It would be nice to include these in the reports as they would be extremely useful for parents.

- Would be great to have some sort of behaviour monitoring, like classdojo, added to the seating plan.

- Bulk reporting, can the emails be automatically sent instead of me having to click send on each email?

- Seating plan - bulk move of the students. They always appear in the top left, this is where I create my actual plans so I have to move them all out of the way before I can start and order them.

Sorry there is so much, but this is such a great app and I would love to see it keep improving!

Un super logiciel mais il manque:
- intégration de graphique pour analyses diverses
-Un lien pour chaque élève afin qu'il puisse visualiser sa progression ou alors un envoie du rapport personnel en un seul clic pour tous les élèves.
A suivre

Hello everyone,
Just wanted to keep you updated on our progress. It's been a while since I replied to your last suggestions, going to solve this right now.

We're working around the clock on all the new features for iDoceo 3.5. However, we'll release a maintenance version before that, officially called iDoceo 3.1 . Still no deadline.

Truth be told, there won't be many interesting additions in this one. We've put a lot of work squashing bugs and redoing all the screens for iOS7.
On the other hand, the main looks of iDoceo have not changed much and we haven't gone completely flat, we still love our wood and leather stitches.

We'll post soon the full list of improvements for this next version 3.1, for starters, here are some of them:

- The planner will now accept annotations/resources on multiple periods for the same class on the same day.
- Planner supports up to 20 periods. Periods can be renamed and hidden.
- Improved reports: student, diary, planner and seating plan.
- Improved WebDAV support
- Improved XLS/XLSX grade book export
- New XLS/XLSX/CSV import wizard
- Bug fixes: camera support on iOS7, calculus - addition (when using minus symbol) and more
- a few surprises, as usual.
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 digital_biscuit,

I've added your requests to our to-do list.
Some can be done already, and others are planned for a later release, here some comments:
- If i have the same class on the same day, I cannot add different notes to each lesson in the planner
Yes, this will be possible in our upcoming version 3.1
- It would be great if I could edit the contents of the ruler so I had my favorite shortcuts there.
Yes, this has to be improved. In the current version you can choose whether you want the schedule or the planner on the ruler (main screen ruler / tap on Options / main screen / show planner on ruler)
- Would be nice to be able to default to my planner instead of my classes when I load idoceo
Count on this for the 3.1 too.
- Would be nice to add free's, lunch, breaks, after and before school to my planner without having to create a class for them
You can do this already by adding a text in location and leaving the class empty. I'm aware it isn't very intuitive. The period field is required though.
- I have a column which should minus the contents of one column from another, but every time I reload the app, the minus symbol defaults back to the plus.
This one's our fault. It will be solved in 3.1
- In the reports, I have added annotations to the column headers. It would be nice to include these in the reports as they would be extremely useful for parents.
Noted.
I'd need to know if you're using the annotation field which is a small text field in the column header configuration or you're working with the annotation tab which allows more text and resources.
- Would be great to have some sort of behaviour monitoring, like classdojo, added to the seating plan.
Yes, this one is in our roadmap.
- Bulk reporting, can the emails be automatically sent instead of me having to click send on each email?
This one will be a bit more difficult to solve. We can't send e-mails without the user's consent yet, but we have a work-around in the horizon.
- Seating plan - bulk move of the students. They always appear in the top left, this is where I create my actual plans so I have to move them all out of the way before I can start and order them.
Noted!
