    • 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.

      • 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

        • 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,

                Thank you for using Symbaloo. When you log in to your Symbaloo account, you’re able to add columns to your webmix for your own personal viewing, but in preview, you’ll only be able to see the 10 × 6 webmix. 

                To add columns, go to ‘options,’ toggle ‘change webmix size,’ and from there you can add columns/rows.

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

                Best regards,
                Lauren | Team Symbaloo

                Make the pages available offline so we can keep working when the Symbaloo server is down.

                      • Deleting Pages.

                        It would be helpful if there was a "are you sure you want to delete" when deleting a page. I have accidentally deleted a page by hitting the x rather than selecting a page.

                          Hi Elisa,

                          Thank you for using Symbaloo. If you selected the remove button at the top of the page,a pop-up will appear asking if you would like to “Delete forever,” there is no way to recover the deleted webmix once clicked.

                          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.

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

                          Best regards,
