How can Symbaloo be even more useful?

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".

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.

  1. Allow backup of my mix.

    I would love to have a local backup of my mix.

    I am worried that you may have a server crash and erase my mix, or, heaven forbid, if you go out of business, I would lose all of my links.

    I'd feel much more secure in using your service.

        Hi there,

        Thank you for your great feedback. I will forward this on to our developers, and hopefully they will be able to work it into Symbaloo in the future. As for the markers, you are able to add them by clicking the options button at the top of the webmix and toggling the “add new marker” switch in the pop-out sidebar.

        Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns! Thank you for using Symbaloo.

        Best regards,

          Hi there,

          Thank you for using Symbaloo. Our free accounts do have ads, however, if you are on a free EDU version of Symbaloo, the ads will be less inappropriate for students as that is our focused educational version. If you need your account transferred over to EDU, please send us a support ticket and we can assist with the transfer.

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

          Best regards,
          Bryan | Team Symbaloo

        • I love this site. The only thing I have not figured out is how to delete or adjust a tile once it is posted.

          Suggest some of the top sites for education in a certain age group or subjects.

            Hi there,

            You can edit a tile by right clicking it in order to access the tile edit options. If you are on Learning Paths, you’ll have to use the trash button at the bottom of the page to delete a tile.

            Also, thank you for your great feedback. I will forward this on to our developers, and hopefully they will be able to work it into Symbaloo in the future.

            Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns! Thank you for using Symbaloo.

          • Text that doesn't cut off at the end of a line and resume on the next!

            I can't stand that when I type in symbaloo the words cut off at the end of a line and start again on the next line! I wouldn't want my students' writing to do that - it really models poor formatting! Seems like a simple word processing fix!

            • when I try to upload an image for the backgroud, it tiles the image. How can I just get a single background picture?

              I wish I could upload a photo for the background and it would appear as a single picture instead of being tiled.

                Hi there,

                Thank you for using Symbaloo. To avoid having tiled images, you must use the recommended wallpaper size of 1920×1080 in order to have the single background image.

                Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you for using Symbaloo!

                        Hi there,

                        Thank you for using Symbaloo. There are 2 ways to arrange webmixes. You can either rearrange using the webmix sidebar by dragging the webmixes in your desired order. Or you can click on the webmix tabs at the top, and rearrange from there. Make sure you are clicked on and in the specific webmix that you are trying to move.

                        Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

                        Best regards,

                          I truly love the Lesson plans - what a great innovation! But how can you come up with that wonder and not be able to find a way for us to be able to organize our webmix menu, either with folders or alphabetizing or something!

                            I would like to build in tiles that are optional so that they are an intervention support and/or challenge activities, but not necessary for all learners for all who play the game.

                            • Change color tiles

                              I want to change the color of the tiles so I can show different levels of intervention supports in the game for my students. That way they will know the direct path of the game and know which will just be the added bonus.

                                    Hi there,

                                    Thank you for using Symbaloo. Although the center box cannot be moved, you can have it changed to the date, weather, time, and many other widgets!

                                    To do this, please go to your preferences, click “other options” and from there you can choose the widget you’d like.

                                    Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

                                    Best regards,
                                    Lauren | Team Symbaloo

                                  • Add mouseover pop up desciption of a tile

                                    My students need more details of each tile than just the title. Would be great if they could mouse over a tile and see a longer description.

                                          Tiene buena interfaz, sería necesario que adicionen herramientas para constrruir organizadores visuales y que estos se puedan visualizar en las baldosas.
