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. Feedback and Support Access within the Workspace

    Add Feedback and Support buttons or links in my workspace so I don't have to go looking for help or ways to give feedback.

    • 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.

                        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.

                        • Move the "topic Tabs" Webmix buttons to the sides

                          I Love this organizational tool, please place the tabs on the SIDE of the buttons, there is more then enough room to include them to the far left and right of the "buttons" this would allow us to SEE more of the categories right there. You should be able to have 28 tabs that you could use to switch screens much better the trying to use a "toolbar" at the top to add more, and scroll when you can see them!

                              Markers (colored sections of tiles) can be resized but cannot be moved. Allow me to click the marker and drag it around the web mix intact with all of its tiles. Allow markers to automatically "bend" around the center app as I move markers around the center.

                              • There should be more than one question on each tile.

                                I use each tile of symbaloo as a learning station of my lessons. To evaluate what students had learned on it I require more than one question, also the option of "try again" I need it deactivated.

                                • a search function for his own links, maybe with tagging.

                                  often I know, I have this link in symbaloo. But I don't find it again quickly .....

                                    • Folders!

                                      It would be great if we could make file folders for the webmixes instead of having them all open all the time with tabs.

                                          Hi there,

                                          If you selected the “x” on a webmix in the tab bar, you can recover it by clicking on the icon to the far left of the tab bar. In the My Webmixes side bar, you can scroll through all of your webmixes until you find the one you are missing. By clicking on the webmix, you will restore it to your tab bar.

                                          However, if you selected the remove button at the top of the page, and then selected “Delete forever,” there is no way to recover the deleted webmix.

                                          Best regards,
                                          Lauren | Team Symbaloo

                                          this feature can be very useful, thanks (it will save my a lot of time)

                                          How can we make Symbaloo even more useful?
