  1. REMOVE THE ADS

    When I began using symbaloo several years ago there were no ads blocking my webmix, now you have inserted large advertisements that cover my tiles, which is horrible! I will no longer use or recommend your product or have my students use it as long as these ads continue to disrupt my use of the product. It's such a shame when good products penalize their free users with overpowering advertisements! Clearly you're not in it for education, but instead to make a few extra bucks on those you can't afford to purchase your product. You've just lost a great cheerleader…

    • Follett Destiny Discover Widget

      Destiny Discover is a search function for school libraries using Follett management software. Many librarians already use Symbaloo to curate resources and including the powerful search function of Destiny Discover would provide students, teachers, and parents with access to all of the recommended resources in one convenient location.

        Hi there,

        Thank you for your feedback. We will forward this on to our developers, and hopefully they will be able to work this out in Symbaloo in the future.

        Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you for using Symbaloo.

        Best regards,
        Bryan | Team Symbaloo

      • webmix sharing

        All people to look at a webmix without being prompted to log in or create an account. That is really annoying when you are just trying to share a mix.

        • Symbaloo could generate a bibliography/works cited page after a student creates a set of research related bookmarks.

          A student would /create a symbaloo/bookmark all resources used for research project. A works cited/bibliography page could be automatically generated based on the bookmarks. This would include a drop-down menu allowing them to select the format style (MLA, APA, etc).

                • No Account Needed for Shared Symbaloo

                  It would be helpful if I could share a Symbaloo board and the recipient could use it without having to have a Symbaloo account. For example, I use Symbaloo to collect activities for my students, but they can't just access the link without setting up an account. To set up accounts for 135 second graders isn't the most feasible idea, so I can't utilize Symbaloo like I want to.

                  • Lock/Unlock and Turn On/Off certain tiles for student use so that I do not have to create a seperate Symbaloo for student use

                    If I want to include certain teacher only links for my EL symbaloo that only I need to have access to, such teacher version online text book site or performance task answer key document that students would never and should never access then I have to create a seperate symbaloo - one for students and one for myself as opposed to having 1 symbaloo with teacher and students tiles that can be "turned on/off" and accessed only by the owner.

                    • I wish I could do a search for my own tiles

                      I wish I could have search box to search my own tiles. I have so many now I need some help in finding a tile that could be on two or three different webmixes.

                      • Ability to COPY tiles from other peoples' webmixes without stopping updates.

                        I'd like to be able to copy things from other folks' webmixes without having to stop updates. As an educator, we "borrow" from each other all the time. Having to stop updates means having to do more searching to go back and find the original webmix. A couple of months ago, I was able to copy from one webmix to another without stopping the updates so I'm not sure why this was changed. Please bring it back!

                                    • Allow a Tile to be added WITHOUT a name

                                      Okay, I figured out what happened.
                                      It wouldn’t let me “quick add a tile” by right-clicking on an empty tile. AT ALL.
                                      When I left clicked to add a tile with the fields and choices, etc., I added the address, but it wouldn’t let me save because I didn’t Enter a NAME for the tile; something that is not always necessary. Usually, your tiles will automatically take the name of the page as designated in the page properties of the source code. In this case, there was no such title of the page because it’s not an html page.
                                      I…
