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".
(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.

  1. Is there way to attach our Symbaloo certification and PD Certification badges and certificates to our profile for ease of finding.

    It would be great if the certification could be found in our profile in addtion to our own files.

        Hi there,

        Unfortunately this is not an option within Symbaloo Lesson Plans currently, but our developers are working on getting this improved.

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

        Best regards,
        Lauren | Team Symbaloo

      • Symbaloo Lesson Check Answer Option

        Not sure if someone has already said this. But it would be nice if a teacher could remove the check answer option on questions posted.

              Hi there,

              Thank you for using Symbaloo. You are able to create tiles using any links that you would like. We think creating tiles with Spanish links is a great idea!

              Please also check out the Symbaloo Gallery for Spanish webmixes created by other educators.

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

              Best regards,
              Lauren | Team Symbaloo

            • Make the tiles easier to write on and add pictures.

              Make the tiles easier to write on and add pictures. Also how about have one tile that opens up a group of related tiles....that would be cool.....I could have a class or subject on a tile that when students click it other tiles would come into view.

              • Add more tiles to my symbaloo without getting rid of the groups or middle widget

                I don't have enough space for all my apps, so how could I add more tiles to my symbaloo.

                • Tile image options should default at full image size

                  Once I choose an icon for the tile, I have having to resize it to show the whole image, it should default to the full image being selected. I spend too much time maximizing the image selection for every single tile.

                    Hi there,

                    Thank you for using Symbaloo. When you add an image to the tile, the system uploads the image in it’s original size.

                    If you’d like to save time resizing the image each time, you can always resize the image before uploading it on to Symbaloo.

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

                    Best regards,
                    Lauren | Team Symbaloo

                        Thank you for using Symbaloo. We will be adding a FAQ button back at the footer of Symbaloo.

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

                      • adding urls in bulk by drag and drop

                        it would be awesome if there was a way to highlight hyperlinks and drag and drop them into the webmix instead of doing it one by one with the symbaloo bookmarker.

                        • It would be helpful if users could give feedback other than stars to people who have made lesson plans.

                          By being able to do so, some errors could be corrected. I'd love to use a lesson plan if the creator would fix a few errors.

                          • Allow multiple people to have editing rights on a webmix

                            I'm pretty sure this idea has already been requested, and I voted for it, but it still hasn't been addressed. When we share a webmix to a friend, business partner, family member or student, we should be able to give them permission to use AND TO EDIT the webmix. Who's with me? Lol

                                • Shorter URL sharing link

                                  It would be nice to have a shorter URL for sharing purposes. My second graders had to type in a very long link.

                                      I wish the site would work more consistently. Sometimes it will only open for half of my students.

                                        • Tile Comments

                                          I'd love to be able to add comments to each individual tile. My example is that if teachers collaborated and shared links for tools that they use they could add a comment sharing their story of success.
